Paper Abstract

Sodern is the French focal plane provider for Earth Observation (EO) satellites. Since the 1980’s, Sodern has played an active role first in the SPOT program. Within the two-spacecraft constellation Pleiades 1A/1B over the next years, Sodern introduced advanced technologies as Silicon Carbide (SiC) focal plane structure and multispectral strip filters dedicated to multiple-lines detectors.
