SEEING: the SAFRAN EO payload for microsats
Author(s): Roland Geyl; Jacques Rodolfo; Jean-Philippe Girault

Paper Abstract

Safran is presenting its concept of optical payload for microsatellites combining high performances and extremely low SWAP factor. It is offering a high resolution of 1.5−m over 10x6,6 km2 area from the 500 km durable orbit. The concept is based on an advanced innovative diffraction limited optical system packaged in a unique very compact volume lower than 10U = 200x200x250 mm making it the ideal solution for 15-100 kg microsatellites. A maximum number of pixels are delivered to the end-user space imagery community thanks to 35 mm Full Frame sensors offering, as of today, 6600x4400 pixels. Panchro imagery and multispectral up to 8 bands 450 to 1000 nm can be offered thanks to 2D structured filters..
