Paper Abstract

The SAGEM Group has been involved for more than 30 years in the field of remote sensing, especially via line-scanning sensors. Today, the SAGEM Group develops and manufactures optronic sensors with spectral bandwidths ranging from ultraviolet up to long-wave infrared (LWIR). Their name is CYCLOPE. Twenty five years ago, a four-channel infrared linescanner was delivered to the French Space Agency, CNES, for remote sensing evaluation and future specification of related spaceborne system. At the same time, a version was delivered to the French Administration for maritime oil pollution monitoring. This equipment is still in use and second-generation equipment was purchased in 1995 by the French Customs. The payload is described as well as the feasibility of such payload for spaceborne applications. Design-driving parameters and technologies are discussed. Emerging technologies make it possible now to propose such systems.
