Teledyne e2v Space Imaging, part of Teledyne Technologies, has designed and built sensors for Aeolus, the first ESA satellite mission to acquire profiles of Earth’s wind on a global scale. Named after the Greek god of the winds, Aeolus is the fifth satellite in the Living Planet Programme of the European Space Agency. It has become one of the highest impact-per-observation instruments in existence. It is capable of observing weather systems from the surface of the planet and into the stratosphere 30 km high. This has helped to predict how that environment will behave in the future. Since 2018, the data from the Aeolus satellite observations have been used to improve weather forecasts and climate models.
