The so called Copernicus Space Component (CSC) Expansion programme includes new missions that have been identified by the European Commission (EC) as priorities for implementation in the coming years by providing additional capabilities in support of current emerging user needs. As part of the preparatory activities for the evolution of Copernicus, feasibility studies are being undertaken for several potential expansion missions. The High Spatio-Temporal Resolution Land Surface Temperature (LST) Monitoring Mission is one of the candidate mission carrying an optical payload, for which the Thermal InfraRed (TIR) Detector performance is criticalfor meeting the mission objectives and of high interest also for other future capabilities. . The objective of the activity are todesign, manufacture and test a TIR Detector array optimised for meeting the needs of the High Spatio-Temporal Resolution Land Surface Temperature (LST) Monitoring Mission. The Contractor shall demonstrate the performance in the required environment with fullyrepresentative prototypes at TRL 5. Subject to good quality proposals, it is the intention to place one contract for this activity. This pre-development of a TIR Detector for the High Spatio-Temporal Resolution Land Surface Temperature (LST) Monitoring Missionwill be funded by the fifth slice (EOEP-5) of the Earth Observation Envelope Programme, which is an optional programme of the Agency. Therefore the procurement will be open to all economic operators belonging to the ESA Member and Associated States and Canada, participating in said EOEP-5 Programme; to date: Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxemburg, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and United Kingdom and Canada.
