Image-sensor developer Teledyne Dalsa is partnering with South Africa-based Denel Spaceteq, a high-performance satellite systems and solutions provider to the African and international aerospace market, to develop a new multispectral image sensor for advanced Earth observations.

The  multimillion dollar development project is expected to return high-resolution images by 2019 when the resulting satellite is launched. The Earth-observation satellite will contribute to the African Resource Management Constellation  (ARMC) for applications such as agriculture, crop and forestry management, urban planning, and environmental and disaster monitoring.
