Lynred delivers flight-model IR detector to MicroCarb, Europe’s pioneer CO2 monitoring space mission

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 21 novembre 2019

Veurey-Voroize, near Grenoble, France. Lynred, a global leader in designing and manufacturing high-quality infrared technologies for aerospace, defense and commercial markets, today announces the delivery of the first flight-model of its largest shortwave infrared detector, NGP, to the MicroCarb space mission. The MicroCarb mission, led by the French space agency CNES, is planned for launch in 2021.“The aim of the MicroCarb mission is to accurately measure the atmospheric concentration of CO2 across the globe, as well as improve our understanding of the mechanisms through which global climate change unfolds,” said François Buisson, MicroCarb project manager at CNES. “MicroCarb is the first mission of its kind in Europe. It gained support from the French government during COP-21 in Paris in December 2015. CNES and satellite manufacturer Airbus Defence and Space set the mission’s stringent requirements through which Lynred’s NGP detector was selected, the only IR detector available with capabilities that met our needs, due to its high-level of performance. We owe this development to the successful collaboration between different teams and Lynred’s skills in advanced technologies as well as its experience and competence in conducting space projects.” Lynred’s NGP detector will be at the center of the high-resolution spectrometer instrument onboard the MicroCarb satellite that will monitor and capture CO2 emissions in the atmosphere. The NGP flight model is the first shortwave infrared (SWIR) detector in a class higher than 1k², the largest ever developed in Europe and delivered for a space mission. Lynred delivered NGP to Airbus Defence and Space (ADS), the prime contractor of the spectrometer instrument for the MicroCarb mission. Lynred has previously collaborated with ADS on space projects, such as Sentinel 2, Sentinel 5 – which will integrate a Lynred NGP detector onboard the METOP-SG platform – and Metimage, among others.“Thanks to the close collaboration between Lynred and Airbus, the NGP detector, designed to match the highly demanding technical needs of the space spectrometer, is ready to embark on MicroCarb,” said Dominique Gillieron, head of earth navigation & science payloads at ADS. “The successful state-of-the-art performance of this large SWIR detector will allow us to meet the challenging objectives of CO2 emission monitoring from space.” NGP is a next-generation panchromatic IR detector designed for earth observation missions, notably for CO2 environmental monitoring. Due to its spectral bandwidth (0.4 – 2.5 µm), the NGP detector is well-suited to capturing CO2 emission and absorption spectral rays. NGP builds upon Lynred’s earlier successful Saturne generation of hyperspectral detectors, offering several performance improvements. These include increasing by a factor of four the number of spectral channels and increasing the spatial resolution. This detector is far more compact; it is half the size of the previous generation, providing more flexibility and cost advantages for system integrators.“Lynred is honored to be part of the Carbon Dioxide Monitoring Mission (MicroCarb), which is essential to observing environmental CO2 emission reductions over the coming years,” said Philippe Chorier, head of business development for space activities at Lynred. “Since our first space mission in 1994, we have continued to significantly invest in R&D in collaboration with French and European Space agencies to ensure that our IR detector designs for space achieve even more far-reaching performance. Lynred is especially proud of its NGP detector. It is tailored to earth observation missions for multispectral or hyperspectral imagery, including spectrometry etc. The NGP detector has all the performance features upon which earth observation scientists and other end-users can rely.”

Code42 CISO Jadee Hanson Receives Pioneer Woman in Tech Award

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 10 dicembre 2018

Code42, the leader in data loss protection, visibility and recovery solutions, announced that Jadee Hanson, Code42’s CISO and vice president of information systems, was presented with the Pioneer Woman in Tech Award by Minnesota Women in Tech. The annual award recognizes the accomplishments and contributions of women in the Minnesota tech industry.Minnesota Women in Tech serves as an open source for the sharing of knowledge, information and creative ideas. The organization is focused on encouraging all women in the field of technology.“We are proud to recognize progressive leaders who are setting new standards of excellence for technology in Minnesota, while serving as roles models for others,” said Valerie Lockhart, executive director of Minnesota Women in Tech. “Their professional and personal stories are inspirational, and their accomplishments are creating new opportunities for other women.” “I am honored to accept this award on behalf of the many talented women who are paving the way for others in the tech industry,” said Hanson. “Diversity in the workforce opens the door to the fresh perspectives we need to keep pace in an industry that thrives on speed and innovation.” Hanson was recognized for her role as a change agent, thought leader and mentor in the field of cybersecurity as well as her personal commitment to leave the world a better place. Hanson is an advocate for women in technology. She believes in drawing on diverse viewpoints to solve business challenges and is actively involved in developing young women for futures in technology. During her 15-year career in cybersecurity, she has led global risk and compliance, security operations, incident response, insider threat monitoring and investigation, and information systems.Hanson is focused on making an impact not only in the cybersecurity industry, but also in impoverished regions of the world. In 2015, she founded Building Without Borders, a non-profit that constructs residential homes in poverty-stricken areas, such as the Dominican Republic.

Cheapflights launches Australia /New Zealand websi

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 15 aprile 2009

London, /PRNewswire/ — Cheapflights Ltd, the pioneer and an international leader in independent online flight price comparison announces the launch of its newest travel search website serving Australia and New Zealand, The website is based on the popular search box navigation format that quickly provides users with deals from providers of flights, or packages of flights plus hotel deals by date. It also provides current “hot deals” hand selected by Cheapflights’ travel experts which may include flights through to package deals. In addition, Cheapflights’ knowledgeable editorial team have developed over 1,000 custom travel guides including helpful travel tips which are expanded regularly. A precursor website had established a growing following of loyal users over several years. The new website has created increased interest amongst travel operators and airlines in becoming advertising “partners.” Mo Bulbrook, Cheapflights’ Head of International said today: “Even though the site was brought to you by “whinging pommies”, Cheapflights believe Aussies & Kiwis couldn’t give a XXXX if it leads to better flight prices. We are therefore very pleased to be able to introduce to our family of sites. Given our websites’ popularity with travelers in Europe and North America, it is logical for us to offer a price search and comparison site “Down Under”. We have been very happy with the encouragement we have received from the travel industry in Australia and New Zealand – companies such as Expedia, Zuji, Best Flights, Qantas Holidays, STA Travel and are all publishing their deals with Cheapflights. In time, we look forward to expanding the site to provide local consumers with even more travel destinations and great fares to get there.”
