Space activity at SOFRADIR has been build for years, growing and strengthening, by relying on 25 years of experience in development and production of 2nd and 3rd generation MCT infrared detectors, and through major space programs. Thanks to its capabilities and experience, SOFRADIR is now able to offer high reliability infrared detectors for space applications. These detectors cover various kinds of applications like hyperspectral observation, earth observations for meteorological or scientific purpose and science experiments. In this paper, a presentation of SOFRADIR main space programs and space products answering customer needs from visible up to VLWIR waveband will be made.
