For hot spot events as forest and vegetation fires, volcanic activity or burning oil spills and coal seams a dedicated space instrumentation does not exist. Respectively missions with a new generation of cooled infrared array sensors are planned for the near future. According to their objectives the BIRD (Bispectral Infra-Red Detection) mission will answer several technological questions related to the operation of this infrared sensors in space. As space segment serves a three-axis stabilised micro-satellite with a mass of 92 kg including a contingent of over 30 % for the payload. The article focuses on the scientific instruments and special aspects of their adaptation to the satellite platform and shows the spacecraft design status.
