Determination of the satellite attitude is one of the critical functions from the moment of launch to the end of the mission. In this study, it has been shown that the satellite attitude can be determined from the Earth and Sun images obtained using cameras in the satellite body and performance of the method has been examined by simulations. In addition, a gyro based integrated attitude determination system has been proposed that uses image based attitude information as a reference measurement.
