In this paper, we describe an infrared imaging payload for a 12U nanosatellite. It contains a cryocooled MWIR detector and FPGA-based data processing unit. The system performs background monitoring in spectral bands with low atmospheric transmission. At the core of the system, a modern FPGA System-on-chip provides the computational performance, interfaces and mass storage for capturing, processing and storing high-resolution images. While the payloads mass of 2.5 kg and power requirements of 17 W exceed the capabilities of the common 2-3U CubeSats, it brings a level of performance to the increasingly popular 12U form factor that was previously reserved for much larger systems.
