Technische Universität Berlin Infrared Nanosatellite
Point of Contact

TUBIN (Technische Universität Berlin Infrared Nanosatellite) is a university satellite mission with the objective to demonstrate novel Earth remote sensing technologies for nanosatellites. Since power and size limitations prove prohibitive to accommodating cooled HgCdTe infrared detectors on a nanosatellite, TUBIN will carry two uncooled microbolometer imagers. In addition, a third imager with sensitivity in the visible spectrum will complement the infrared payload. The ground resolution of the thermal images will be 180 m. Due to the much smaller pixel size, the images of the visible spectrum camera will have a ground resolution of 50 m.


Following the TechnoSat mission, TUBIN is the second satellite to be based on the TUBiX20 satellite platform of Technische Universität Berlin. Secondary mission objective is the on-orbit verification of the high accuracy configuration of the TUBiX20 attitude determination and control system.
