CMOSIS Won European Space Projects

CMOSIS announced it has won a tender the French National Space Agency - CNES. CNES has selected the consortium of CMOSIS and Thales Alenia Space to develop the next generation TDI sensor in standard CMOS image sensor technology. This novel image sensor will have a pixel size of 13um and up to 50 TDI stages. The sensor targets CCD performance in terms of quantum efficiency, dynamic MTF and read noise.

Also, ESA has granted a consortium of Galileo Avionica, BAE Systems, Thales Alenia Space, and CMOSIS the contract for the design and prototyping of a medium-high accuracy digital sun sensor for satellite attitude determination.
