Measurement and Instrumentation Systems

Close

Organisation profile

Main research areas: Development of concepts, designs, implementations and verifications of the advanced high performance instruments for use on board spacecraft.

The Measurement and Instrumentation division develops high accuracy stellar reference units for spacecraft and science grade vector magnetometers for space and ground use. The division also works on optical detection and tracking sensors for space.

The division also develops optical formation flying sensors and autonomous sensor systems. These systems are refinded by calibration techniques enabling full accuracy use. This calibaration is done by the Measurement and Instrumentation division.

Research plan

  • Implementation of formation flying test lab and associated methods and techniques.
  • Inertial navigation techniques.
  • Sub-arcsecond techniques.
  • Interplanetary and planetary stellar magnetic measurement platforms
  • Planetary lander systems and autonomy

Applications of the technology

In parallel to these general instrument improvements, other applications and technology uses have been pursued. This research has led to several novel measurement principles, which encompass multi-sensor-head star trackers for improved maneuverability, sub-arcsecond accuracy instruments, astronomical telescope field determination, miniature magnetometer packages for planetary landers, autonomous radiation impact handling and guider and rendezvous docking systems.
