The TriScape100 is offering near real-time change monitoring at an exceptional resolution in a CubeSat form factor. This imager design is based on a 12.6 megapixel CMOS image sensor with integrated Red Green Blue (RGB) Bayer filter in the visible spectral range. The TriScape100 provides snapshot imaging with a frame rate of up to 150 fps to accommodate high-definition video.

The signal-to-noise ratio for a selection of integration times is shown in the Figure below. A radiance level of 100 W·m-2·sr-1·µm-1 is assumed across the spectral range for all of the SNR values. The figure also shows the relative through-system efficiency of the three spectral bands inclusive of sensor quantum efficiency (QE), lens transmittance and NIR blocking filter transmittance.
