Jena-Optronik belongs to the pioneers of multi-spectral space cameras and 3D imaging systems.
Today’s main emphasis is on the application of opto-electronic technology for Earth Observation and Remote Sensing. With the development of the multi-spectral imagers for RapidEye we successfully entered the market of satellite-based earth observation instruments.
We are a member of the core team of Sentinel-2 for optical earth observation, Sentinel-3 for the observation of the oceans and Sentinel-4 for atmospheric monitoring within the European earth observation program GMES (Global Monitoring for Environment and Security).
Furthermore the imaging radiometer METimage is a planned German contribution for future operational earth observation platforms in polar orbits (EUMETSAT Post-EPS).
