Designed for the Polish Earth observation nanosatellite Swiatowid.
The Irix 300SR is the first Irix telescopic lens designed especially for nanosatellites observing the Earth. This lens project is a response to the rapidly growing space market’s demand for top-class optics for small observation satellites.
Thanks to close cooperation with the Polish company SatRevoution, the first experimental prototype of this lens was the main optical section of the Swiatowid nanosatellite, delivered to an ISS on April 19, 2019 and deployed to LEO on July 3, 2019. Mission ended March 14, 2021.
