Attitude and temperature sensors
Aryabhata was a spin-stabilised satellite. Attitude determination was required for the evaluation of the stabilisation system and for scientific experiments. Temperature sensors were required for the performance evaluation of the onboard systems and of the thermal control system. A detailed description of the sensors used for these functions inAryabhata is given.
