A Teledyne Technologies company, Teledyne DALSA has collaborated with Surrey Satellite Technology Limited (SSTL), an operational and commercial satellite programs provider for a multimillion dollar project for developing a novel multi-spectral image sensor, which can be used in sophisticated earth observations.
This multimillion dollar project is expected to start during 2014 with the Teledyne DALSA's team expertise in multi-spectral imaging technology. The company provides the multi-spectral sensors with increased efficiency by integrating dichoric filters with an image sensor.
The advanced earth observation application requires an imaging technology having higher resolution, which is not performed in previous earth observation projects. This earth observation application will also employ the DMC3 satellite constellation. The Teledyne DALSA’s new multi-spectral sensors will permit DMC International Imaging, a subsidiary company and client of SSTL to obtain increased resolution image data through this observation project for use in applications including disaster and environment monitoring, and urban planning.
Philip Colet, Sales and Marketing department’s Vice President of Teledyne DALSA, stated that the company is delighted about its partnership with SSTL. Colet said that with the company’s experience in designs developed for radiation hardness and adverse environmental conditions in space, the company will be a great competitor to SSTL and its customers.
With its long-term experience in edge designing, packaging and fabrication technologies, the company’s new imaging sensor achieves multi-spectral sensitivity over wide bandwidths in a single, completely compact, reliable package.
