The recent discovery of high-energy astrophysical neutrinos and competitive measurements of neutrino oscillation parameters by IceCube motivate a next generation Antarctic neutrino observatory. IceCube-Gen2 is a proposed extension to the current IceCube detector, which uses the extremely clean Antarctic ice as detector medium. While intense calibration efforts with LED flashers have resulted in a good understanding of the ice, ice properties still dominate systematic uncertainties in most analyses. To improve our knowledge of the ice, we propose a novel camera system integrated within the optical sensor modules. The camera system can be installed on all new optical sensor modules to determine their location and orientation and study ice properties. We describe how this system will help us to improve our understanding of the ice. We present a prototype system and simulation that demonstrates its merit.
