University of North Dakota and Upper Midwest Aerospace Consortium
AgCam, built by the University of North Dakota and the Upper Midwest Aerospace Consortium (UMAC), is a multi-spectral camera destined for use on the ISS as a sub-rack payload of the Window Observational Research Facility (WORF).
JENOPTIK Optical Systems participated with UMAC in supplying the optical subsystems which include a single 300 mm lens and optical beam splitter supply light to two digital line-scan cameras, each with its own filter, red (630-690 nm) and near infrared (780-890 nm).
JENOPTIK supplied hardware
JENOPTIK supplied hardware includes:
- Beamsplitter design with Red and IR optical channels
- Design and Delivery of Optical and Environmental Test Plan
- Design, qualification and fabrication of lens, filters, beamsplitter and mechanicals.
Technical challenges included alignment of the sensor arrays aligned to:
- +/- 5 pixels (centration)
- 0.122 μ radians (pointing)
