Studies in the field of space device engineering conducted at the department are mostly connected with long experience in developing techniques for s/c real-time precision orientation.
Further investigations are aimed at both tracker design perfection and their software development.
Creation of the BOKZ star trackers modifications became the main result of these works.

The main goal of our studies consists in star trackers reliabiliry increase under mass and power consumption reduction. The other task is to increase performance in order to use star trackers not only for determination of attitude , but also angular velocity of its change.
