ISIS – Innovative Solutions in Space (ISISpace) has selected Simera Sense to provide them with a multi-spectral optical payload — the MultiScape 100 imagery, developed by Simera Sense, for an upcoming cubesat mission. This will be ISISpace’s primary payload on a 6U cubesat Earth Observation (EO) mission.
As a result of the close collaboration between ISISpace and Simera Sense, they can deliver turnkey EPO solutions for a range of remote sensing applications. ISISpace is providing complete satellite missions, satellites and services for a broad range of applications and sees a strong increase in the need for responsive remote sensing solutions using small satellites.
Simera Sense’s xScape100 product range is introducing the highest EO performance in the most compact form factor for smallsats. The large aperture and long focal length enable a compelling spatial resolution of below 5m GSD in up to 7 bands in the visible and near-IR range.
Johann du Toit, CEO of Simera Sense, said the company is on a mission to increase the resolution that can be sensed with smaller Earth Observation satellites. The company is excited to work with such an experienced new space actor in the development of turnkey Earth observation missions. Together, the companies can respond quickly to customer needs in a more cost-effective manner.
Jeroen Rotteveel, CEO of ISISpace, added that the company offers turn-key space mission solutions and satellite-as-a-service offerings to a broad range of customers with varying needs.
