Description
Description: Cube Satellites (CubeSats) are based on standard 10x10cm3 building blocks and are pushing the boundaries of the use of high-technology in new space applications. Originally used to train engineers and scientists and to demonstrate technology, many teams around the world are looking into the uses of CubeSats to perform low-cost science experiments in space. The Centre for Electronic Imaging has successfully flown two imaging payloads on UK national CubeSats; UKube-1 and AlSat-Nano which have both returned images of the Earth, and have proven the new CMOS imaging technology in space thereby raising its "Technology Readiness Level" (TRL). The...
