SCS Gecko imager
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
RGB images are captured at up to 5 frames per second† using a matrix sensor in snapshot (global shutter) mode.
Image data is captured directly to the integrated mass storage. 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.
Availability: 12 – 16 weeks
