Teledyne DALSA Manufactured Sensors for Curiosity Rover

After Truesense and e2v announcements, Teledyne DALSA publishes that the image sensors for the Curiosity's Navcams and Hazcams were manufactured in its Bromont, Quebec, foundry, as were those on the previous Spirit and Opportunity rovers. The hazard avoidance cameras are installed on each corner of the rover and the 3D stereoscopic navigation cameras are part of the rover's camera mast.

  1. As i can see from many other posts, each company has manufactured sensors for curiosity. So curiosity has to weight 1 ton because it could not decide which camera to buy.
