Paper Abstract

Sofradir started to work in the field of space applications and especially in the earth observation domain in the beginning of the 1990th. Thanks to the work done with the support of the French Ministry of Defense and the European Space Agency, Sofradir has acquired a large know-how and has become a major supplier for European space industry. Nowadays, Sofradir technologies offer possibilities to develop a large panel of high reliable detectors like long linear arrays or two dimensional arrays covering bandwidth from visible to 15 μm and more based on qualified Mercury Cadmium Telluride (MCT) technology. As a matter of fact, Sofradir is involved in several projects for future space missions (SPIRALE, Bepi Colombo, MTG, SGLI...). This paper proposes an overview of Sofradir technology capabilities and experience for design of custom space detectors. In particular this paper presents latest developments for space applications with new results in visible, long wavelength and space qualification of infrared detectors.
