Abstract: Ultra small scale satellites have a very demanding and limited mass and power budget specification; therefore, mostly the design constraints prevent the use of small scale camera. In this paper, an imaging capturing subsystem is proposed for ultra small satellite, which includes low power consumption components; the developed imaging capturing subsystem was studied, simulated and successfully integrated in order to operate on board Femto satellite and cooperate with ERPSat-1 pico satellite during mission in Leo. In addition, the simulation has shown results that motivate integration of ultra small satellite with cubic sat during mission for space observation.
