Paper Abstract

Based on a large experience, SOFRADIR is conducting major space programs covering all the wavelength range from visible to VLWIR as Sentinel projects in the frame of the GMES program or MTG detectors development and manufacturing for the future European meteorological satellites of third generation. In particular, new developments of MCT infrared detectors are currently made: • A new generation of SWIR hyperspectral detectors with a format of 1024x1024 / 15 µm pitch • Optimization of MCT performances for VLWIR spectral range aiming at new sounding missions • Developments of new infrared detectors for MTG program In this paper, a review of the main space programs conducted by SOFRADIR is presented with a particular emphasis on the last developments.
