Contamination of optical surfaces is a real problem of any space mission. You can’t really send over something with a wipe. Therefore, we make sure that everything is and remains clean.

The image shows a picture of one of the 50MPx detectors that we use in our HRVI-6HD 2nd gen. camera. Also visible is the stripe filter which has been placed instead of the cover glass.
