Author(s): Gilbert Uguen; Philippe Luquet; François Chassat

Paper Abstract

EADS-Astrium has recently completed the development of a 2m-resolution camera, so-called RSI (Remote Sensing Instrument), for the small-satellite ROCSAT-2, which is the second component of the long-term space program of the Republic of China. The National Space Program Office of Taïwan selected EADS-Astrium as the Prime Contractor for the development of the spacecraft, including the bus and the main instrument RSI.

The main challenges for the RSI development were:
- to introduce innovative technologies in order to meet the high performance requirements while achieving the design simplicity necessary for the mission (low mass, low power)
- to have a development approach and verification compatible with the very tight development schedule

This paper describes the instrument design together with the development and verification logic that were implemented to successfully meet these objectives.
