Imaging & Data Expertise

When you choose a Ball electro-optical instrument, you’ll get some of the most accurate data available. Our hyperspectral and multispectral instruments span the electromagnetic spectrum and provide a wide range of data that usually exceeds our customers’ expectations. We do it by using innovative, fixed price contract vehicles for commercial space and U.S. government customers.

Our dedicated Detector Technology Center fabricates custom detectors and focal plane array systems that are central to the instruments we built for pioneering space science missions like Kepler/K2, the Hubble Space Telescope, and the Ozone Mapping and Profiler Suite (OMPS), now flying on NASA’s Suomi NPP weather satellite.
