Teledyne DALSA’s High Performance Detectors Power “Electronic Eyes” Aboard OSIRIS-REx. Space-qualified and radiation-hardened, the Teledyne DALSA CCD detectors feature very low dark signal with a low read out noise, and power each of the 3 cameras that comprise the OCAMS:
• PolyCam will collect telescopic images during the approach to Bennu and high resolution images once in formation;
• MapCam is tasked with collecting color imagery and searching for satellites around the asteroid;
• SamCam is dedicated to delivering context imagery during the Touch-and-Go sample collection.
The spacecraft will reach Bennu in 2018 and return a sample to Earth in 2023.
