Paper Abstract

Already well-known in optical technology through major space programmes such as the Meteosat IR (Infra-Red) imager and the Spot HRV (High Resolution Visible) camera, Matra has found it necessary to expand the capabilities of their Instrumentation Division in order to match the trend towards passive microwave radiometry. Note that this evolution is not viewed as a fundamental gap but rather as a natural extension of the spectrum towards larger wavelengthes, allowing for complementary observations. So far, a number of contracts have been won and the related activities, including the development of airborne demonstration instruments aiming at preparing future space applications, are shortly presented in this paper.
