Technology Development of Extended Spectral Response for SWIR Detectors
Fast Track – 9th Call (Completed 2016)
Lead Organisation: Leonardo MW Ltd partnered with UK Astronomy Technology Centre
Project Funded in the CEOI-ST EO9 Call for Mission and Technology Studies in preparation for future ESA Earth Explorer Missions.
The objective of this programme of work is to de-risk and mature the performance of NIR and SWIR cooled infrared detectors over an extended spectral range which is critical for a number of proposed earth observation missions such as TRUTHS and Tropical Carbon Mission.
