Earth observation satellites use e2v sensors to take detailed images of the Earth’s surface.
Earth observation imaging
Earth observation satellites monitor the Earth’s surface, using e2v sensors to deliver highly detailed images for resource, disaster and ocean monitoring, and land mapping.
With over 30 years’ experience in custom CCD and CMOS sensor designs, packaging, focal plane integration and supply chain management, e2v’s technical excellence is recognised by the world’s major space agencies, including NASA, ESA, JAXA, ISRO and CSA; and the world’s major satellite builders.
e2v is a world leading supplier of multi-linear and multi-TDI (Time Delay Integration) imaging solutions allowing for high sensitivity, high resolution and very low noise applications as well as optimised CMOS matrices for specific applications such as weather forecasting.
e2v’s image sensors have been selected for some of the most demanding Earth observation missions including Meteosat Third Generation (MTG) for Thales Alenia Space, Pleiades for CNES and SEOSAT/INGENIO for ESA.
