Satellite Launched

Photonics Spectra
Jun 2010
CCD imaging sensors manufactured by e2v were launched into space by NASA from Cape Canaveral, Fla. in early March 2010 onboard a Delta IV rocket, which carried the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite-P (GOES-P). It supplied 20 flight model and 20 engineering model CCDs for the SXI instruments on GOES-N, O and P. Designed and built at the Lockheed Martin Space Systems Advanced Technology Center, e2v worked with University College London’s Mullard Space Science Laboratory and Lockheed on the design, characterization and supply of the sensors for the program.
