Abstract

The main payload of the BIRD micro-satellite is the newly developed Hot Spot Recognition System. Its a dual-channel instrument for middle and thermal infrared imagery based on cooled MCT line detectors. The miniaturisation by integrated detector/ cooler assemblies provides a highly efficient design. Since the launch in October 2001 from SHAR/ India the BIRD payload, claiming 30% of the BIRD mass of 92kg, is fully operational. Among others forest fires (Australia), volcanoes (Etna, Chile) and burning coal mines (China) have been detected and their parameters like size, temperature and energy release could be determined. As the status of the payload system is satisfactorily it has a potential to be applied in new missions with the help of modern detector technology.
