We create imager products that can be used in a modern nanosatellite or microsatellite platform to create compact high performance satellite solutions.
The Gecko imager is an easy-to-integrate imaging solution for your CubeSat mission. A customizable high-performance mass storage unit is integrated into the compact design. The Gecko imager offers mechanical compatibility with standard CubeSat frames. Image data is captured directly to the integrated mass storage. Data may be streamed out to an on-board computer and downlinked at a lower data rate, as required.
Reliable operation is achieved by using a combination of proprietary hardware and space-proven ruggedized optics.
