Industry: Space.
Partners: ESA, Airbus DS, Sener, INTA.
Description: Ingenio (or SEOSat/Ingenio) is a Spanish project to produce a satellite capable of providing wide-field imagery (230 60km x 60km frames a day) at 2.5m panchromatic resolution and 10m colour resolution, from the classic ‘spy satellite’ sun-synchronous polar orbit; it is Spain’s first optical imaging satellite. The satellite is part of the Spanish Earth Observation Satellite program and it includes the Sensosol experiment: a multi sun sensor with wide field of view and high accuracy, and it has being developed by the Solar MEMS team and the University of Seville.
