Teledyne DALSA a Teledyne Technologies company and global leader in remote image sensing technology congratulates Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd. (SSTL)a premier provider of operational and commercial satellite programmes, on the recent launch of the DMC3/TripleSat Constellation. With Teledyne DALSA’s expertise in multispectral imaging, the Constellation is now returning images to aid urban planning and intelligence management based on high-resolution images.

The high resolution imager on board the DMC3 satellites, was designed to provide 1 metre ground sampling distance (GSD) in panchromatic mode, and 4 metres of GSD in multispectral mode, with a swath width of 23.4km.

“We’re pleased by the results we’re seeing from the DMC3 satellites,” commented Luis Gomes, Director of Earth Observation at SSTL. “The imager performance on all three spacecrafts has surpassed our expectations and the performance of the sensors has been outstanding. The Teledyne DALSA team not only met our critical technical requirements, they have delivered well beyond them.”

“We are very pleased that SSTL chose Teledyne DALSA as a supplier to the DMC3/TripleSat Constellation,” commented Jean Pierre Luevano, International Sales Manager at Teledyne DALSA. “We’re pleased to contribute to SSTL’s leading edge satellite programme and are excited by the results they’re seeing.”

Teledyne DALSA’s multispectral imaging solutions leverage its long experience in leading edge design, fabrication and packaging technologies to achieve multispectral sensitivity in a single fully miniaturized package. A single device can contain multiple imaging areas tailored to different multispectral bandwidths (wavelengths) in a highly cost effective and reliable package. By placing advanced dichroic filters directly in the imaging area, Teledyne DALSA delivers highly efficient multispectral sensors at various resolutions.
