  • December 9, 2011 -- Thales Alenia Space chooses CMOS imaging sensors from e2v for European MTG weather satellite
    CHELMSFORD, England, 9 Dec. 2011. Satellite electronics designers at Thales Alenia Space in Cannes, France, needed a space-qualified complementary metal oxide silicon (CMOS) imaging sensor for the flexible combined imager (FCI) instrument on the European Meteosat Third Generation (MTG) weather satellite. They found their solution from e2v Technologies plc in Chelmsford, England. The MTG network is being designed to gather high-resolution weather data to 2037 and beyond. The series of six geostationary weather satellites includes four imaging satellites (MTG-I) and two sounding satellites (MTG-S) in geostationary orbits.
