With the down-size of spacecraft for earth observation in volume, power and budget, there is a pressing need for new, more affordable, easier to integrate, instrumentation sensor. Pyxalis has developed a high dynamic range image sensor dedicated to hyperspectral imaging. This platform can be customized for space or ground-based application, reducing significantly the need for a full-custom detector development for space application. This work describes the development and characterization of such a 120dB High Dynamic Range sensor platform as well as the various possibilities for customization as well as a particular implementation by Grenoble University in the Context of a micro-satellite development.
