VCUB1

VCUB1 [VTE]

VCUB1 is the first Earth Observation and Data Collection satellite designed by the Visiona Tecnologia Espacial (VTE). In operation, it will demonstrate Visiona's ability to design high-performance space systems.

The satellite is built to the CubeSat (6U) form factor.

The OPTO 3UCAM camera uses Push-Broom sensors with Time-Delayed Integration technology and is equipped with a high-frequency gyroscope to compensate for the effects of satellite motion. These technologies combined with a stable platform with ultra-balanced reaction wheels allow the collection of images with high exposure and radiometric and geometric quality not found in this class of satellites. With a spatial resolution of 3.5 m and high image quality, VCUB1 will be one of the smallest satellites in the world capable of collecting images in the Red Edge Band, allowing the development of state-of-the-art agricultural and environmental monitoring applications, supported by the WebVis Platform.

Its bi-directional UHF data collection system is initially aimed at hydro-meteorological data collection applications but may fulfill various civilian and military communications and IoT missions.
