Teledyne e2v Space Imaging, part of the Teledyne Technologies, is hosting a recruitment event at its site in Chelmsford to offer an insight into the business and speak to the team about careers in space.

Based in Chelmsford in Essex, the 200-strong team works to design, test and manufacture highly advanced space imaging devices.

Although its design centre is in the UK, the company’s reach is global and goes beyond the imaging domain, it has given rise to the need to recruit increasingly large numbers of talented specialists from around the world.

Key applications for the specialist CMOS and CCD imaging sensors designed by Teledyne e2v Space Imaging include data collection for Earth Observation, space telescopes for exploration of our universe, ground astronomy and scientific research.

The technologies are developed to suit applications in ranges from x-ray through to visible and shortwave infrared, using a number of various technology platforms that match the needs of the space missions as well as ground-based applications and sciences.

Whilst the sensor developed by the company is physically small in comparison to the rest of the satellite, its impact is significant. In the past 3 months, Teledyne e2v sensors:

Launched on the JUICE mission to map the icy moons of Jupiter

Delivered the first CMOS images from MTG-I1 taking weather forecasting to ‘nowcasting’

Launched on Euclid to map the dark energy in our Universe

The company works with its customers to design bespoke solutions that meet their needs for high sensitivity, low noise, durability in hostile conditions and high speed.

The design teams are also looking into increasing Teledyne e2v Space Imaging’s product offering around electronics and camera solutions designed specifically for commercial space.

According to Daniel Waller, General Manager at Teledyne e2v Space Imaging: “The space sector is on a growth trajectory and so are we. We have transformed from being just a component supplier to a trusted partner who develops and designs solutions for both large primes and start-ups. All of this means that we are actively seeking talented people to join us on our exciting journey towards even greater expansion and growth.”

Another upcoming event, where Teledyne e2v Space Imaging will have a strong presence, is the Royal Aeronautical Institute’s Autumn recruitment fair, taking place in the UK in November 2023.

The recruitment drive is not aimed solely at engineers. The company is looking for designers, manufacturers, R&D experts, risk assessors and imaging experts to help create a cohesive, ambitious global team that will take the company to the next level in commercial space achievement and market share.
