E2v sees growth in space imaging and industrial vision

E2v has posted revenue of £102.3 million for its half year financial results ending 30 September, representing growth of 4 per cent.

Sales for the imaging sector were up by 6 per cent at £37.4 million due to growth in space imaging and in industrial vision in Asia. This was partially offset by lower revenue in thermal imaging. Revenue for science was steady.

Order intake in space imaging was particularly strong with new orders for sensors from the US for the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) and from the European Space Agency for Planetary Transits and Oscillations of stars (PLATO). Also there have been further orders from the Lebedev Physical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences at the system level.

Industrial vision demand experienced good growth in Asia, reflecting some recovery of the industrial markets. The company anticipates further growth from new product introductions in the second half of the year, including the new CMOS based camera, the Uniiqa+.
