SWIRup image sensors will complement visible light image sensors in high-resolution earth observation missions (eg vegetation/greenhouse gas monitoring).
At present, image sensors for upper band of shortwave infrared require cryogenic cooling to 150–210 K (-125 to -65˚C). The cryogenic cooling contributes significant additional volume to the optical payload of the satellite.
SWIRup is developing image sensors that do not require cryogenic cooling. This will allow SWIRUp image sensors to achieve miniaturisation and reduced power consumption.
