Precision Multispectral Imager

Precision Multispectral Imager

SSTL is manufacturing a new very high resolution imager that delivers high quality imagery and high area coverage for pan-sharpened colour mapping and surveillance applications.  The Precision imager is a compact design that utilises a novel sensor and innovative opto-mechanical techniques to achieve a swath of >9.5km and a GSD in panchromatic channel of 0.6m native. The PAN channel is used to sharpen four 1.2m GSD multi-spectral channels and through post-processing sub 0.5m GSD is achievable.  Precision’s detector is a novel CMOS-in-CCD architecture resulting in low power consumption and read noise and time delay and integration capability.  Teledyne e2V is providing the state-of-the-art TDI CMOS sensor. 

SSTL is building the imager as part of ESA’s InCubed programme.
