High performing Camera-system for Earth Observation Projects

The NanoCam C1U system is a flexible and modular system to rapidly implement tailored imaging systems based on customer requirements. It is an off-the-shelf configuration consisting off: lens, lens table, image acquisition, processing board, and software.

NanoCam C1U has been designed to be implementable in a standard 1U CubeSat structure together with GomSpace’s on-board computers, attitude control system, radio transceiver and power products to allow low cost Earth observation using CubeSats.

Main Features:
