Satellite cameras for space applications
In Ecliptic we have accumulated over 20 years of experience in the space sector. Throughout this time we have incorporated into our product portfolio the best image acquisition and processing systems, achieving the development of space cameras that have successfully participated in more than 150 space missions.
ABOUT OUR SATELLITE CAMERAS
More than 20 years of leadership in the space industry
The imaging and camera systems we manufacture at Ecliptic allow great flexibility and usability, as they are modular or section-based, which makes it easy to reuse these modules with a proven track record of extensive flight history. In addition, we provide sensor configurations that can be interchangeable with single or multiple cameras, a variety of host interfaces, and multiple processing functions.
Thanks to our developments and technology, Ecliptic has been able to participate in major space missions, such as the Space Shuttle, the International Space Station or even Artemis, NASA's major program to bring humans back to the Moon.
Past missions include launchers and spacecraft for LEO, MEO, GEO, cislunar and lunar orbits and other exploration vehicles.
SATELLITE CAMERAS APPLICATIONS
Satellite cameras based on a modular architecture
Based on a modular architecture, the use cases of our space cameras product line include earth observation, space craft monitoring, space exploration and surveillance.
SATELLITE CAMERAS DETAILS
Our products in detail
Our space flight heritage accumulates more than 20 years, two decades of work that have allowed us to develop a portfolio of space cameras including single-camera video systems and multi-camera digital video systems.
Single Camera Video Systems
Our system can be configured following client requirements including visible (SD, Full HD, 4K), LWIR, SWIR, VNIR and Cooled MWIR, multispectral, spectrometers/ Hyperspectral and Star Tracker
Multi-Camera Digital Video Systems (DVS)
Supports 8 or more cameras in a single solution. Has optional sandbox with customer specific algorithms (e.g., AI-driven apps) and host interface options: MIL-STD-1553B CMD & TLM or LVDS, RS422, UART.
