The novelty was presented to the public during an event in Rio de Janeiro

Akaer has finalized the flight qualification of the 3UCAM nanosatellite camera . This camera should fly in the coming months on the Brazilian VCUB 6U satellite, under development by the company Visiona.

This equipment, which weighs only 4 kilos, is capable of generating images with 3.5 meters of resolution with a ground aperture of 14 km at a LEO orbit of 500 km. The camera generates images in 4 programmable spectral bands.

Akaer is the only Brazilian company that dominates the complete cycle of development, qualification and production of satellite cameras. Its systems are installed on all CBERS satellites and on Amazônia 1.

These and other camera systems were exhibited by Akaer at LAAD, the most important trade event for the Defense and Security in Latin America, which took place between April 11th and 14th, in Rio de Janeiro.

The company brought exclusive novelties to the exhibition, such as batteries, hybrid UAVs , satellite cameras and the announcement of new partnerships. The event took place at Riocentro and brought together large companies and organizations from the sector.

Details – The 3UCAM is a low-cost, versatile camera that can be used in pairs in order to increase the number of observation bands. In this case, it is possible to install two other cameras in 12U or 16U nanosatellites .

Akaer is also developing the new E4UCAM nanosatellite camera , which features a resolution of just 2 meters with a ground aperture range of 14 km at a LEO orbit of 500 km . The equipment weighs just 6 kilos and is capable of generating images in 6 bands, 4 of which are multispectral and 2 are panchromatic.

Another technological innovation is the first Brazilian submetric camera ST30CAM. Akaer obtained from FINEP (Financier of Studies and Projects) the necessary subsidy for the development of the equipment .

It will deliver a resolution of 0.75m to a 45km LEO orbit with a ground aperture range of 18km. This camera will be installed on a new satellite that will be developed by a group of companies from the Brazilian space cluster.

The ST30CAM is a high reliability satellite camera that provides high resolution and quality images with reliable performance. It is capable of operating in a wide range of low Earth orbits (LEO), making it ideal for environmental monitoring, disaster management, cartography and geospatial analysis .

The camera was designed to operate with two panchromatic bands and up to four customizable spectral bands (for example, R, G, B, Red -Edge, NIR among others), with individual control of TDI stages, allowing multispectral coverage.

“Our products stand out for their versatility, high technology and precision. We are very satisfied with the results obtained, and we will continue working to maintain the increasingly high standard of excellence”, comments Cesar Silva, CEO of Akaer .

What’s New at LAAD

Akaer ‘s featured products at LAAD are the “Cascavel” armored combat vehicle modernization program; the modernization of the wings of the “P3-A Orion” aircraft of the Brazilian Air Force (FAB), and the “3UCAM” camera for nanosatellites that is installed on the VCUB satellite and is expected to be launched in the coming months. The company also intends to present the OLHAR thermal imaging monocle; the IRSA, which is the infra-red sensor set that equips the Ar-Ar A-DARTER missile, in addition to other important products for the defense sector.
