The Indian Mars Orbiter mission has reached Mars on September 24, 2014

and has been successfully placed in orbit. The satellite Attitude Control System makes use of a SED26 star tracker, ordered by ISRO in April 2013, and delivered by Sodern on schedule, in August 2013.

In addition to nominal GN&C equipment used for ATV attitude control and docking, two Star Trackers and two Rendez-vous sensors, Sodern supplied Visible and Infrared Cameras for Laser InfraRed Imaging Sensor (LIRIS) demonstration.
Images taken by the three cameras will be returned to Earth and used to validate new algorithms for next generation docking sensors.
