Chameleon Imager

The Chameleon is a compact CubeSat imager that provides:

  • High resolution Multispectral or Hyperspectral linescan imaging or
  • High framerate RGB Bayer-pattern imaging
  • Large integrated high-speed data storage
  • Compact form factor that is optimised for integration with 3U or larger CubeSat frames

The Chameleon imager takes advantage of the space-qualified electronics of the Gecko imager and combines this with high-performance optics to maximize imaging capability in small form factor CubeSats. High capacity, high-performance mass storage is integrated into the compact design. The opto-mechanics have been optimized to fit within the available volume of CubeSat deployers thus providing maximum volume to accommodate the functionality required for your high-performance CubeSat mission.

Images are captured directly to the integrated mass storage. No need for additional payload data storage capacity on the satellite. Data can be streamed directly to a transmitter or to an onboard computer as required. Reliable operation is achieved by using a combination of proprietary hardware and ruggedized optics.
