A figure-of-merit cheat sheet for optical EO payloads. For system engineers designing and operating optical Earth Observation missions.
Learn about the three main trends impacting optical design choice for EO in the newspace industry.
Cubesat cameras can index every corner of the globe as it happens. But, more importantly, they are redefining the way we think about earth intelligence.
People frequently compare Cubesat optical payloads with their significant counterparts. Unfortunately, due to several bottlenecks, this comparison is unfair.
RGB Cubesat imagers are ideal to provide eyeballs on the earth for the detection of change. Video Cubesat imagers provides an additional dimension to EO.
Managing the earth’s resources is challenging. Optical payloads are evolving fast, and multispectral Cubesat imagers have major benefits for Earth Observation.
Cubesat camera resolution is best quantified by MTF, as it is a measure of image detail is transfered. One can define the whole imaging chain using MTF.
The main challenge of a CubSat Imager is to stream EO data to users rapidly. This challenge chan be addressed onboard by changing data into foresight.
Medium resolution CubeSat Cameras are well-positioned to provide a complementary tip and cue service to larger high-resolution, more expensive counterparts.
