The First Optical Space Mini-Camera Takes 20,000 Images in a Month

The first miniaturized space-based Earth-observing optical camera has begun sending huge-resolution images after a complex process of calibration, thermal stabilization, and connection tests.

The camera, developed by UF startup and UF Innovate | The Hub resident client Satlantis, a provider of high-performance payload technologies for Earth observation and remote sensing, has reached image number 20,000 after a month of work in space.

The Spanish mill left the Japanese Space Agency (JAXA) station on May 20 for the International Space Station (ISS). After several days of travel and a successful docking on the Japanese Kibo module, the camera was assembled on June 10 and commissioned to begin taking the first images.
