This satellite reads the amount of light hitting its solar panels. This light data are sent to a ground control station through an IR LED. The ground control station has a light sensor (with an IR filter) that reads the light data from the satellite and displays it on the number module. You can adjust the satellite’s position and angle wirelessly from the ground control station, ensuring maximum light exposure.
