TUBIN (Tubsat 27)

TUBIN [TU Berlin]

TUBIN (TU Berlin Infrared Nanosatellite) is a nanosatellite project of the Technical University of Berlin to observe the earth in infrared.

The mission is to test an thermal infrared (TIR) earth observation payload using a micro-bolometer array on a TUBiX20 nanosatellite bus of TechnoSat heritage.

Since power and size limitations prove prohibitive to accommodating cooled HgCdTe infrared detectors on a nanosatellite, TUBIN will carry two uncooled microbolometer imagers. The cameras are used for determination of sea surface temperature and land surfaces brightness temperature. In addition, a third imager with sensitivity in the visible spectrum will complement the infrared payload. The ground resolution of the thermal images will be 170 m and the sensitivity 1.5 K. Due to the much smaller pixel size, the images of the visible spectrum camera will have a ground resolution of 40 m.
