Teledyne Dalsa Secures Earth Observation Contract
WATERLOO, Ontario, Canada, Dec. 12, 2011 — Teledyne Dalsa received a contract from Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd. (SSTL) of Guildford, UK, to develop a multispectral sensor for an advanced Earth observation application. The multimillion-dollar project is expected to begin delivering high-resolution images in 2014.
This Earth observation application will be part of the DMC3 (Disaster Monitoring Constellation) series of satellites. The multispectral sensors to be developed by Teledyne Dalsa will allow Surrey’s subsidiary company and client, DMC International Imaging, to acquire data for applications such as urban planning, and environment and disaster monitoring.
“We are confident that our experience with designs optimized for radiation hardness and extreme environments typical in space will give SSTL and its customer a competitive advantage,” said Philip Colet, vice president of sales and marketing at Teledyne Dalsa.
