Land Survey Camera
Virtual consumption - 200 mA

 Камера The camera is a useful payload for surveying the Earth from space, for which the spacecraft was designed in our case. In reality, in addition to cameras for surveying the Earth, there is a huge range of possible payloads for space vehicles - scientific, educational, military and technological.

In experiments with the construction set, the camera will be a useful payload as it will transfer high-quality photographs of a given “Earth” surface segment - the target task of the “launch.” The camera has 10 memory sectors for photos taken, which are filled using the following function:

int32_t take_photo(uint16_t num)

After filling in a memory sector, the photo remains there until it is overwritten with a new photo. Also, at any time, photos can be transmitted to Earth via a high-speed radio channel using the following function:

int32_t transmit_photo(uint16_t num) //Changed in version 1.0

Important notes
The camera cable should be as short as possible (no longer than 40cm). There should not be pieces of unused cable after installing the connectors.

You can connect the camera directly to the camera connector only on the central computer.
