  • The principle and optical design of digital sun sensors widely used in different fields are reviewed and their applications and development are given. Firstly, it describes the working principle of sun sensors. The digital sun sensors are constructed with the principle of pinhole camera, and it consisted of a optical system, a photo detector and a information processing unit. Then, the paper gives the optical systems, which may be implemented with a single aperture, or a single split, or multiple apertures, or multiple splits. Furthermore, it focuses on the development of the digital sun sensors based on conventional photo detectors and micro detectors integrating the optical system, image sensor and the information processing unit, and also introduces centroiding algorithms for sun spots. Finally, the future challenge and development trends for space sun sensors are discussed.
