The HAS2 CMOS image sensor is the latest development in Cypress's STAR family of radiation-tolerant image sensors. The device has an array of 1024 x 1024 active pixels (18 µm) and it supports on-chip Non-Destructive Readout and multiple windowing. The HAS2 sensor is qualified for space applications in accordance with the European Space Agency's (ESA) European Space Components Coordination (ESCC) standards.

Two HAS2 image sensors are on-board the ESA's Proba-2 Satellite, which was successfully launched on November 2, 2009. The HAS2 is implemented on a new star tracker developed by SELEX Galileo of Italy, and it is also being used in an extreme-ultraviolet telescope scientific experiment for solar corona observation.
