The Chameleon builds upon the space qualified control 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 on-board computer as required. Reliable operation is achieved by using a combination of proprietary hardware and ruggedized optics.
