Teledyne e2v

Teledyne e2v is a global manufacturer, headquartered in England, that designs, develops and manufactures space-qualified imagers and arrays, semiconductors, and other products. The company has designed and built cameras for the European Space Agency’s Rosetta comet mission, the Peruvian government’s PerúSAT-1 and NASA’s Juno mission to Jupiter. Located across Europe, Asia and the Americas, Teledyne e2v has been involved in many technological and innovation breakthroughs and has forged many successful industry partnerships. In addition to space-based applications, Teledyne e2v provides imaging sensors and custom camera solutions for the machine vision market as well as healthcare, industrial and defense uses. The company’s e2v sensors are also critical components in NASA satellites such as OMPs (Ozone monitoring platforms) and satellites made in China, Japan and many other countries.

Teledyne e2v’s visual image sensors have played a key role in helping us learn more about the long-term health of our planet, embedded as part of many Earth observation satellites, including those of the Sentinel and Earth Explorer programs. The sensors deliver highly detailed images for resource, disaster and ocean monitoring, and land mapping. This data can then be used to inform government and private industry environmental policy to help protect Earth’s future. Teledyne e2v’s sensors will also play a vital role in the European Space Agency’s upcoming FLEX satellite mission that will map vegetation and improve our understanding of how carbon moves between plants and the atmosphere. New Teledyne e2v sensors on Sentinels 4 and 5 will monitor air quality and the ozone layer and new meteorological satellites such as MTG, which will provide improved data on weather patterns.
