The Visual Monitoring System (VMS) study defined the requirements, architecture and development plan for a camera to be used in a wide range of applications onboard a spacecraft. The University of Dundee provided support to Astrium UK and OIP in the application definition, requirements analysis and architectural design of the VMS. An important outcome of this research was the use of SpaceWire as a communication network within a modular camera, as well as using SpaceWire as the image output and camera control interface.
