[amsat-bb] Fw: Digital Slow Scan in space

Hi All,

We are looking for a practical system to use on a 1U, or perhaps 2U, cubesat to take medium definition images and transmit them to the ground on VHF for educational outreach purposes.

All the usual cubesat mass, power, data budgets would apply but and I would especially appreciate advice and guidance about the best type of digital slow scan (or similar) system to adopt.

I am aware of the SSDV system used on some balloon flights  http://ukhas.org.uk/guides:ssdv

Thanks in advance for all comments ideas and observations and especially any offers of support!
