Paper Abstract

We present in this paper an evaluation of an innovative image sensor that provides color information without the need of organic filters. The sensor is a CMOS array with more than 4 millions pixels which filters the incident photons into R, G, and B channels, delivering the full resolution in color. Such a sensor, combining high performance with low power consumption, is of high interest for future space missions. The paper presents the characteristics of the detector as well as the first results of environmental testing.
