Paper Abstract

Sofradir is one of the leading companies that develop and produce infrared detectors. Space applications have become a significant activity and Sofradir relies now on 20 years of experience in development and production of MCT infrared detectors of 2nd and 3rd generation for space applications. Thanks to its capabilities and experience, Sofradir is now able to offer high reliability infrared detectors for space applications. These detectors cover various kinds of applications like hyperspectral observation, earth observations for meteorological or scientific purpose and science experiments. In this paper, we present a review of latest Sofradir's development for infrared space applications. A presentation of Sofradir infrared detectors answering hyperspectral needs from visible up to VLWIR waveband will be made. In addition a particular emphasis will be placed on the different programs currently running, with a presentation of the associated results as they relate to performances and qualifications for space use.
