Objectives and Applications The primary objective of the infrared imagery demonstration is to pave the way for a future operational space based EW (Early Warning) system by in orbit validation of its key requirements. SPIRALE will collect infrared Earth background images, which will allow to derive from simulations the technical characteristics of the future space based EW system (sensor, platform stability and processing chain).
