The Redwire Space SpectraCAM High Resolution Flight Camera is engineered for low earth orbit (LEO) applications including docking, navigation, inspection, and situational awareness. Leveraging its heritage in producing advanced space cameras and compliant with the Buy America Act, Redwire's low-cost, high-performance SpectraCAM is a COTS component supporting commercial, civil, and defense missions.

Featuring GigE Vision® image streaming over 1 Gb/s Ethernet, SpectraCAM's low light sensitivity and wide dynamic range make the system suitable for high contrast imaging found in orbital sun-illuminated applications. With GigE Vision compatible control and image capture, SpectraCAM's ease of integration and low deployment cost make it suited to multiple LEO applications. The complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) imaging camera offered in the SpectraCAM flight camera enables notable low-light performance. Low noise imaging electronics ensure clear and sharp images that render details with high accuracy. Available in a 50mm x 50mm x 47mm (boresight) configuration, weighing under 180g (without optics), and typical power consumption of [email protected] 400mA (full resolution, 10 fps), the SpectraCAM camera is engineered for weight, power, and reliability.

SpectraCAM supports any user-specified image resolution and aspect ratio to 2592 x 1944 with 5MP monochrome resolution (color resolution is available). Offering 12-bit image depth, responsivity of 1.4V/lux-sec (550nm), dynamic range of 70.1 dB, and an image SNR of ≤ 38.1 dB, the SpectraCAM can support a range of mission profiles and applications. Exposure time settings of 0.1 msec to 5000 msec and precise exposure timing to 1 μsec resolution are standard, and the system supports operating temperatures of -30C to +55C.

High Resolution Space Cameras are export controlled through an ECCN (Export Control Classification Number) issued by the United States Department of Commerce. Export shipment requires successful application for an export license (under ECCN7A004 for Redwire SpectraCAM Flight Cameras). Redwire is AS9100D/ISO 9001 certified.
