MultiScape100 CIS Product

The MultiScape100 CIS provides continuous line-scan imaging in 7 spectral bands, with up to 32 digital TDI stages. The large aperture diameter and long focal length of the xScape100 VNIR OFE enables a GSD of 4.75 m at an orbital height of 500 km.

Engineered for the ultimate Cubesat image quality.

The MultiScape100 CIS is designed with a single goal in mind, to capture the earth in greater detail, more depth and a wider range of spectral bands within a 3U and 6U CubeSat form factor. This imager is based on a global shutter CMOS image sensor and a multispectral filter in the visible and near-infrared (VNIR) spectral range, each with up to 32 digital digital TDI stages.
