ROSETTA wakes up and puts on it’s glasses (Made by Spectrogon!)

Wakey, Wakey! ROSETTA wakes up and puts on it’s glasses (Made by Spectrogon!)

There has been widespread media coverage in the last week of the Rosetta space probe, which was woken up on January 20th after a 31 month nap (or deep space hibernation!) for it´s coming rendezvous with Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko. The OSIRIS instrument is the main imaging system on the mission and will take pictures of the comet at a range of wavelengths selected by Spectrogon’s filters (it’s glasses!).

The Rosetta mission is one of the European Space Agency’s ”Cornerstone Missions” which means it is of very high importance both politically and scientifically. Spectrogon is very proud to have been chosen to manufacture the special filters for such a high profile and important mission. We have done our bit, it’s now up to Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko to put on a show for the cameras!

Spectrogon Filters Scan the Earth

Following the successful launch and testing of ESA’s Proba-V satellite, Spectrogon filters will be used to scan every inch of the Earth for the next 5 years. The Proba-V mission will monitor and map land cover and vegetation growth across the entire planet every two days. The data can be used for alerting authorities to crop failures or monitoring the spread of deserts and deforestation.
Spectrogon designed and manufactured the infrared filters for the SWIR detector and supplied them to instrument manufacturer OIP Sensor Systems.
