Figure 3. Instrument payload on the DLR-TUBSAT

Figure 3 shows the cameras mounted by shock mounts to the instrument housing. The camera heads are identical and can produce real time video or take single exposures in the visible wavelength region of the electromagnetic spectrum. The download time of the single exposures are 30 sec and have higher image quality than the real time frames.
