Phase One has introduced its iXM-SP150 space camera with high-quality components for both Earth Observation and Space Domain Awareness applications.

Phase One officially unveiled the iXM-SP150, a 150 megapixel snapshot matrix camera, at GEOINT 2023, St. Louis, May 21-25th.

“Phase One is pleased to announce the commercial release of a space-hardened camera designed specifically for satellite hardware,” said Dov Kalinski, Phase One Vice President of Security & Space. “The new camera is available to order now.”

The iXM-SP150’s snapshot matrix imaging technology provides high photogrammetric precision, eliminating errors associated with line Time Delay Integration scanning cameras. It is specifically engineered to endure the harsh conditions of Low Earth Orbit, providing high resolution, high sensitivity, and low noise for both color and multispectral imaging applications.

Furthermore, the iXM-SP150 is designed to be lightweight, weighing less than 1kg, and has a compact enclosure size of 100 mm x 100 mm x 70mm (excluding the telescope lens). Its maximum power consumption is 20 W RMS. The compact and efficient design ensures that it can be easily integrated into small satellite platforms without compromising performance.

A Phase One customer’s unique need was the beginning of this latest innovation, Matthew Mangione, ARKA Danbury’s Remote Sensing Business Lead, added: “We value the imaging sensor expertise Phase One has provided to our space solutions. We see their newest product, the high resolution large format iXM-SP150 camera, having a major impact on LEO earth observation missions and other spaceflight applications.”

In October 2022, Phase One announced the successful launch and orbital deployment of an imaging sensor based on the Phase One iXM Series 150 MP frame camera.

The Phase One iXM-SP150 is currently available. With its exceptional image quality, ability to unlock new functionalities, and significantly reduce integration times, the iXM-SP150 truly is a game changer.
