    Novel Sun Sensors


    UWE-4 is equipped with a novel sun sensor on each panel called Naneye 2D image sensors with a size of only 1 x 1 mm originally designed for medical applications.


    UWE-4 Quick News : The Soyuz Launch with UWE-4 on board will be available online through the following links:


    Last week our Team returned from the Vostochny Launch Site (Russia) where we performed the last check out tests of UWE-4 before launch. The satellite will be launched through the German integrator ECM Space on a Soyuz-2 mission using a Fregat upper stage on 27th December 2018 at 02:07:18 UTC.


    Since 21st of November 2013 UWE‑3 performs very well in space and is celebrating its 5th birthday in orbit today. But wait – there’s more to come: UWE‑3 is awaiting UWE‑4 in space! Presumably on the 25th of December 2018 UWE‑4 will be launched from Vostochny Cosmodrome, Russia.
