Venus Space camera is ready for integration

The Venus Space Camera has been tested and is ready to delivered to CNES and ISA
Elbit Systems has delivered the Venus Space Camera to the French Space Agency, Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales (CNES).

The camera is the result of collaboration between CNES and the Israel Space Agency (ISA) to develop a satellite system for scientific studies of land resources, such as the environment, vegetation, agriculture and water resources quality.

The Electro-optics Elop was chosen to develop the camera, based on capabilities of high 12-band spectral resolution and 5m ground resolution.

The camera has been examined to establish that it will withstand harsh space conditions and its performance capabilities. The camera will be integrated onboard the satellite in the coming months ready for the launch. It joins the Neptune and Jupiter space cameras.
