We have received the first images from the main payload (6-band imager) at the capture station at the Overberg Test Range (OTB). With this significant milestone we have confirmed that the imager electronics and mass memory storage are working as expected. Over the next couple of weeks we will perform various system calibration functions to further optimize the image quality.
The first officially released image will be sent to the Department of Science and Technology when available. The Department may publish the particular image at its own convenience. Further images on this blog will be published with the consent of the Department.
