Imaging subsystems

Building upon our recognised experience in CCD and CMOS image sensors, we provide state-of-the-art imaging subsystems to minimise our customers’ development and integration efforts.

What we offer

  • We design, assemble, integrate, verify and test subsystems with tight optomechanical tolerances in thermal challenging environments for optimum alignment to the customer’s optics and minimised deviations across large focal planes
  • We produce focal planes that remain flat at low operating temperatures as well as at room temperature
  • We integrate electronics to achieve sensor-limited performance in a focal plane array
  • We ensure stable, uniform and controlled cooling over a large area focal plane for a long period of time
  • We offer long-term technical support over the lifetime of our customers’ programmes

We offer different levels of integration along our customers’ value chain.

For Space science, ground- based astronomy, photon science and Earth observation applications, our offer ranges from bespoke CCD and CMOS image sensors with a customised package to customised detectors assembly (with filters and flexi), to focal plane arrays and complete camera subsystems or vacuum enclosures with sensors and integrated front-end electronics.
