Projekt BIRD

The micro-satellite BIRD



The micro-satellite on Bi-spectral Infrared Detection (BIRD) is a demonstrator of innovative remote sensing technology dedicated to fire recognition by small satellites. BIRD was developed, manufactured, and tested by the German Aerospace Center (DLR). It was piggy back launched together with the Indian satellite TES and the ESA micro-satellite PROBA on 22 October 2001.
