E2v, a provider of solutions for the space sector, has won the Sir Arthur Clarke award for outstanding achievements by a team in space activities.  

The award was presented to e2v group director Richard Gibbs by Major Tim Peake (the first British citizen to be selected as an astronaut by ESA) at the UK Space Conference 2013 awards dinner in Glasgow, Scotland.

The Sir Arthur Clarke Award is an award given in recognition of notable contributions to space exploration, particularly British achievements. It has been presented annually since 2005.

E2v was selected due to its outstanding contribution to space activities in the past year including arriving on Mars on board NASA's Curiosity rover, going into orbit in Europe's highest-resolution satellite, Pleiades, and equipping the telescope of the extraordinary astronomy mission Gaia, which is due to launch in the next few months.

Gibbs said: 'It was a huge honour to be nominated for this award and we are thrilled to have actually won. In this past year we have seen a number of high profile space missions returning images and data using our image sensors. We are proud that the e2v team have been recognised for our outstanding work in this sector.'
