Paper Abstract

This paper aims to present the optical system of the Multispectral Camera MUX that is part of the payload for the CBERS 3 and 4 satellite (China Brazil Earth Resources Satellite). The CBERS program was created by Brazil and China for the development of Earth remote sensing satellites. The MUX camera is being developed by the Brazilian company OPTO ELETRÔNICA S.A. and consists of a multispectral camera with four spectral bands covering the wavelength range from blue to near infrared (from 450nm to 890nm) with a ground resolution of 20m and a ground swath width of 120 km. Besides MUX camera (optical system, signal processing electronics and mechanical frame), this company is also developing the Ground Support Equipment – GSE of this camera and is responsible for structural and environmental tests. At the moment, the project is in the Qualification Model (QM). During this phase of the development, the camera shall be submitted to several tests, including environmental, optical and structural tests with the objective of qualify the project and start the flight models manufacturing.
