CE-SAT 1 [Canon]

CE-SAT 1 (Canon Electric Satellite 1) is an experimental earth observing microsatellite developed and built by Canon Electronics.

The 50 g class satellite is built on a 50 cm × 50 cm × 70 cm structure. It features an optical imaging system based on a 40 cm diameter Cassegrain telescope with 3720 mm focal length and an detector based on the EOS 5D mk.3 camera. This imaging system provides an 1 m ground resolution from a 600 km orbit with a 6 km × 4 km frame size.

Also an experimental deorbiting system is on board.

The satellite will be launched in 2017 as a secondary payload on an Indian PSLV rocket
