Which Cubesat Cameras Actually Worked in Orbit before the year 2019?
Context and explanation:
The very few missions which published at least one image I've found:
- Planet Labs Doves.
- marCO-B, with a note that marCO-A images were deemed too blurry for usage.
Other than those exceptions, it's very difficult to see any image sample allegedly taken from a cubesat. My suspicion is that, because they're produced with reduced quality assurance oversight and often with non-qualified equipment, that the general rule is that cameras onboard cubesats simply don't work.
Because nobody likes to give publicity to failures, this information is not shared so often. I've once seen a page claiming:
" April 2015: The (...) mission is operating quite well, 17 months after launch (..) the expected lifetime was one year (..) The platform has been qualified in orbit. The only remaining activity is the nominal operation of ADCS, although all associated hardware have been already in-flight tested.(...) Some images (shutter closed) have been taken with the camera (..)."
Images from said mission are yet to be found on the web as of 2018. But, it could be the case that I simply haven't found them.
So anyone knows other cubesat missions which successfully delivered actual images to the ground before 2019?
The year 2019 is set so new answers do not accumulate overtime.
Pics or it didn't happen!
