cosine lecture on optical instruments at ISSO 2023

As one of leading parties delivering remote sensing solutions leveraging optical payloads for the New Space market, cosine has been invited to give a lecture at the upcoming International School on Space Optics (ISSO). This school is dedicated to enlightening the next generation of engineers and scientists who are eager to embark on a career in the field of space optics. Dr. Marco Esposito, the Managing Director of cosine Remote Sensing, will give a talk about “Optical Instruments in the New Space era” on 27 October from 14:00 to 15:30, at ESTEC in Noordwijk, The Netherlands.

ISSO is a biannual event with a primary focus on nurturing the community of young engineers and scientists who are already active or have the aspiration to work in the field of Spaceborne Optics. It offers an intensive five-days program of lectures, design project and visits to space-related facilities. The school will provide a 360- degree overview of the broad area of Space Optics covering Applications, Instrumentation and Technologies thereby opening the horizons and opportunities for the young engineers and scientists to assess better all available opportunities.

The lecture from Dr Esposito on Optical instruments in the NewSpace era will provide the basis on how compact optical instruments are designed and built, and what they can offer to operational and scientific missions, providing examples of optical technologies, optical instruments, satellites and missions. The type economy generated will also be discussed.

This school is also a good opportunity for recruitment. cosine is always on the lookout for new members to help us in our various projects, such as the development of new generation spectral imagers as well as construction of the X-ray mirrors for the European Space Agency’s (ESA) Athena mission. If you’re interested in joining the cosine team, please explore our available positions.
