Very interesting find!

There was short discussion but it here on eab in 2013:
Suncom Joy Sensor - Will it work on Amiga?

I did some digging. The switch in the middle seems to activate 4 or 8 direction mode ... so for Amiga only the 4 direction mode makes sense.

The touch elements seem really to be what we are used to now: capacitive and not resistive. no pressing is needed.

In an Atari Forum it is described as:
"I loved using this controller and it was surprisingly responsive(from what I remember 2 decades ago!)."

Suncom was really innovative as it seems:
in the F-15 Joystick they even used Hall-sensors for deduction of movement
