Paper Abstract

The digital space micro-cameras are compact and lightweight units able to operate in harsh environmental conditions (low temperature, vacuum, resistance to vibrations and shocks) while combining high performances (high resolution, high data rate, standard interface, internal memory) and low power consumption. We present the concept that has been used in several missions from the European Space Agency and the perspectives offered by these miniaturized systems for space applications.
