The space industry is now facing the rise of SmallSats, tiny low-cost fast-developing spacecrafts. This leads to a demand for miniaturized Attitude Determination and Control Systems (ADCS), accurate, reliable, robust and low cost.

Hipparcos’s ADCS, based on 40-years experience of the team, intend to provide the best answer to such a demand: their competitive advantages stem in the intelligence of the algorithms for attitude determination through a smart multicamera architecture, in the intelligent data fusion from multiple sensors and in sophisticated in-orbit recalibration procedures.
