The THX 31160 is a small size sensor which has been designed for optical intersatellite links* . The performance characteristics of the device (image rate up to 20 kHz and improved response in the 0.8 - 0.9 μm range) have been optimized to achieve e very high pointing accuracy of the tracking system. Its characteristics make the THX 31160 a direct competitor to the classical 4 quadrant detector for pointing systems.
