Teledyne adds partner for space imaging platform

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
The German Aerospace Center (DLR) will develop an instrument for Teledyne Technologies Inc.’s digital imaging platform for the International Space Station.

Partnering with Teledyne Brown Engineering Inc., a Teledyne subsidiary in Huntsville, Ala., DLR plans to develop and deliver an advanced visual/near-IR imaging spectrometer to be integrated with Teledyne’s MUSES (Multi-User System for Earth Sensing) platform, currently being developed under an agreement with NASA.

The instrument will occupy one of the four Earth-looking instrument sites on MUSES, which will be mounted on the International Space Station, and will help advance the state of the art in remote sensing technology, Teledyne said.

Working in the wavelength range from visible through the near-IR, the DLR/Teledyne instrument will enable precise data acquisition of the Earth’s surface for applications including fire detection, maritime domain awareness and atmospheric research. Teledyne will be responsible for integrating and operating the instrument and will collaborate with DLR in several areas, including basic and applied research for use of data in optimizing data collected from other MUSES-hosted instrumentation. Teledyne and DLR expect the instrument to be operational by late 2015.
