Australian Company HEO Brings CCTV To Space – Australian company HEO has developed surveillance technology for space applications, with 37 HEO CCTV cameras delivered and a similar number planned.

Cameras are powered by HEO’s Australian-made Holmes Imager, which HEO said is the first camera system developed specifically for space applications.

The Holmes Imager can deliver high resolution in a compact form factor of 274mm (L) x 115mm (W) x 125mm (H) allowing deployment on micro satellites. Operating as a hosted payload, Holmes captures resolved imagery of space objects as they fly past the host spacecraft.

The Holmes Imager is supported the HEO Inspect inspection software platform, which processes and analyses data to allow visual examination of space objects.

According to the HEO team, its technology operates at high speeds; doing everything from checking on the health of satellites to helping de-escalate world conflicts by contributing to counterespionage.

“We are thrilled to put an Australian-manufactured camera in space and continue on our mission of making space transparent,” said Will Crowe, CEO of HEO Robotics.

“We need high-quality data to make evidence-based decisions. As a world-first, the Holmes Imagers will provide improved data to HEO Inspect so our customers have access to non-Earth imaging and analytics on the space objects that matter to them.”

Key to the technology, HEO cameras can examine what satellites in space are carrying, helping to prevent future conflict by spotting weapons that might lead to escalation.

“I think one of the biggest things that we can do using this technology is have a look at satellites, see what they’re carrying,” Crowe said.

“I think a lot of people are concerned about weapons in space – being able to go and verify – that’s a big part of what we do.”

The Holmes Imager is a collaboration between HEO Robotics’ Australian partners, including Additive Engineering, the Australian National Fabrication Facility (ANFF), The Australian National University (ANU), Emax Engineering, Infinity Avionics and Ironbox Engineering. These partners variously added expertise in high-precision diamond turning, optics and electronics design, manufacturing, and 3D printing.
