To meet the requirements for very high sensitive detection posed by a number of space programmes, such as in Radioastronomy or Earth observation, the European Space Agency has been developing low temperature sensors comprising superconducting detectors from the mm to the X band, SQUID magnetometers and gradiometers. This paper will review the technology status and results achieved today.
