Gecko Imager

The Gecko imager is has already been fully qualified and deployed in the European QB50 programme. High capacity, high performance mass storage is integrated into the compact design. Featuring a mounting frame compatible with standard 2U, 3U and 6U frames, the Gecko imager is a perfect match for your CubeSat mission.

RGB images are captured directly to the integrated mass storage at up to 5 frames per second† using a matrix sensor in snapshot (global shutter) mode. Data may be streamed out to an on-board computer and downlinked a lower data rate, as required.

Reliable operation achieved by using a combination of proprietary hardware and space-proven ruggedized optics. The Gecko imager offers mechanical compatibility with standard frames.
