Goodrich to Design Sensor for Space

Photonics Spectra
Sep 2007
An imaging sensor made by Goodrich Corp. of Charlotte, N.C., will be modified for use in space. The company was awarded a contract by the US Naval Research Laboratory to adapt its electro-optic sensor, currently employed in U2 surveillance planes, for use as a space payload. The research and design work to adapt it for space use is being done at the company’s plant in Danbury, Conn. From a low orbit, the sensor will provide 1-m resolution over 11-km-wide swaths.
