StarBerry Sense

  • Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) recently launched a low-cost star sensor called StarBerrySense, mounted on the PSLV Orbital Experimental Module (POEM), which has performed well during its first-ever space test.
  • StarBerrySense is a low-cost sensor designed to quickly calculate the orientation of a spacecraft by identifying stars in its field of view.
  • Developed by the Space Payloads Group at the Indian Institute of Astrophysics (IIA), StarBerrySense is built around the Raspberry Pi minicomputer and is cost-effective and simple to build.
  • POEM is a unique initiative by ISRO that utilizes the spent 4th stage of the PSLV as an orbital platform for carrying out scientific experiments.
