[en] The development of a canister-free videogrammetry system is presented. Applications in view, are coordinate measurements during thermal vacuum test and on-baord space flight metrology of mechanical structures, reflectors and antenna's. The paper presents the breadboard system architecture. Two breadboards have been developed. One is based on a space-qualified micro-imager camera. Lenses and flashers are all commercial components and have been made vacuum compatible. Results of accuracy (typically 50ppm) and resolution (typically 25 ppm) tests, in ambient and in vacuum are also presented.
