MultiScape200 CIS

 Designed to define new limits for Earth Observation. The MultiScape200 CIS features 9344 pixels in the across-track direction in up to 7 bands across the visible and near-IR spectral range. The digital TDI capabilities brings a whole new level of pixel depth to each image.

More Powerful. More resolution at its core.

The MultiScape200 CIS brings more in-depth insight with more spatial and spectral detail to each pixel. Engineered to fit in a 12U volume makes the MultiScape200 CIS ideal for any 16U or larger platform. Thanks to an advanced thermal design, satellite operators can use the MultiScape200 CIS over a wide temperature range, for longer.
