VIGO Photonics infrared detectors were selected to be used in NASA’s spectrometer instrument, the Laser Air Monitor System (LAMS) crew habitable environment onboard NASA’s Orion spacecraft.

LAMS was built by NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration to measure the concentration of CO2, H2O, and O2 in both the cabin and suit environments. It is one of the critical life support systems for future manned missions! You can learn more about VIGO Photonics' applications in the space industry in the pdf which can be downloaded at the link below. This paper describes some examples of the application of infrared detectors for space missions and the way to choose the best detectors provided by VIGO Photonics that suit space exploration.
