Shortwave infrared image sensors complement visible light image sensors in highresolution Earth observation missions (e.g. vegetation/greenhouse gas monitoring). The SWIR-UP project is developing image sensors that do not require cryogenic cooling, thereby achieving miniaturization and reduced satellite power consumption.
