Re: CUTE-1.7+APDII camera Earth Picture

The grand station says as follows:

The CMOS camera like Mobile device is carried in Cute-1.7 + APD II.
A picture is acquired by controlling from PDA which is OBC.
Furthermore JPEG conversion is performed inside PDA. And the file size
is compressed, and the downlink is carried out on the ground station
using FM packet with a U-band.

When a camera turned to the direction of the earth, a photograph was
set up and taken so that a shutter might be cut. However, since this
function worked normally, it is still under examination whether it is
that the earth was reflected.

Cute-1.7 + APD II took four photographs by the present and carried out
the downlink of the thumbnail (64*48 pixels) about these all.
The photograph of the full-size picture (640*480 pixels) which the earth
is reflected finely and the downlink has completed is only what was
exhibited on my website the other day.
