Canon will launch the high-resolution camera CE-SAT-IB satellite into space

It will be taken by Rocket Lab’s Electron rocket next July 4th

Canon will launch the high-resolution camera CE-SAT-IB satellite into space as part of the charge for the next Rocket Lab mission with the Electron rocket. This satellite will be used to capture new images of the Earth in high resolution. The private aerospace company based in Long Beach, California, wants to launch “frequent and reliable” launches, something it will demonstrate when making its next launch “Pics or It Didn’t Happen” just three weeks after its “Don’t Stop Me” mission Now “.

The launch of the new mission will be coordinated by Spaceflight Inc .. The CE-SAT-1B satellite is classified as a microsatellite, weighs only 67kg and should not be confused with the CE-SAT-IIB satellite, which will be launched into space on another mission from Rocket Lab in the coming months.

The launch of the Electron rocket will be made from Rocket Lab’s Launch Complex 1 located in North Island, New Zealand, on July 4th. The ‘Pics or It Didn’t Happen’ mission is Rocket Lab’s fourth most recent. The launch was originally scheduled for earlier this year, but has been delayed because of the Coronavirus pandemic.

“This launch is very critical for Canon Electronics, as we are launching a satellite where we have significantly increased the proportion of internal component development compared to the previous launch. Partnering with Spaceflight on this mission has been very helpful and we are looking forward to the launch success of our satellites. “

Canon launched its CE-SAT-I microsatellite in 2017, which was successfully placed into Earth orbit. In 2019 the camera company detailed this effort on its global website, explaining that it already has many of the technologies needed to build and deploy these small machines.

The CE-SAT-IB microsatellite is the first mass-produced version of Canon Electronics’ CE-SAT-1. It has solar cells and batteries for power supply, and an imaging system based on the 40cm Cassegrain telescope with a focal length of 3720mm. The satellite image detector is based on the Canon EOS 5D Mk.3 camera. With this technology, the CE-SAT-IB is capable of capturing images of the Earth with a resolution of 1m from an orbit distance of 600km, according to information from NASA.

In its own announcement, Rocket Lab said recently that its launch will include a total of seven microsatellites with Canon’s CE-SAT-IB as the primary payload. If everything goes according to plan, Rocket Lab plans to carry out additional launches every month in 2020 and should do the same 2021. In addition to launching another Canon satellite in the coming months, the company also foresees its first launch for Space Force for the third quarter of 2020.
