Space and Earth Observation Instruments
Sodern has a genuine and recognized expertise in Earth observation instruments as well as in scientific technologies embedded for both civil and military space programs:
HIGH RESOLUTION FOCAL PLANE RESOLUTION
Designed to meet the goal of increasing resolution, PLEIADES brings together the latest advanced technologies: Time Delay Integration (TDI), strip filters, structures and SiC (Silicon Carbide) mirrors. The use of 10 large CCD detectors in a very compact volume while supporting high thermal power is one of the main features of Pleiades with panchromatic detection and 4 spectral bands and the high resolution it offers: 30,000 pixels in panchromatic mode (PAN) and 7,500 pixels in color mode (XS).
