We had developed Micro Earth Sensor Assembly (MESA) using COTS-based thermopile arrays. The piggy back satellite ‘SOCRATES’ carrying our MESA was launched on May 24, 2014, and we have obtained over 210,000 sampled MESA data onboard during this one year. By analyzing these data, we can offer the result that 3 accuracy of roll and pitch angles are within 1.3 deg. during satellite’s Earth pointing mode. We found that angle accuracy is sometimes disturbed during Sun pointing mode, however, catching Earth direction (roll or pitch angle equal 0 deg. ) is reliable. MESA is suitable for small satellite for Earth pointing and back-up for main precise Earth sensor.
