STR (Swarm)

The Swarm Star Trackers retrieve information on the precise satellite orientation and attitude.

p-magnetic-field-electric-field-instruments

ACC (Swarm)

The Accelerometer measures the Swarm satellite’s non-gravitational acceleration in its respective orbit.

p-magnetic-field-electric-field-instruments

GPSR and LRR (Swarm)

Each Swarm satellite is equipped with a Laser Retroreflector for external calibration and validation of the on-board GPS receiver.
