Design and Review of STT for the SMILES and MAXI experiments

    Project Details

    Description

    The International Space Station (ISS) which is currently under construction, as a worldwide collaboration. The Japanese contribution, JEM carry, apart from pressurised module for astronauts, an exposed facility for four remote sensing and earth observation moduels. IAU is collaborating with NASDA, the Japanese Space Agensy, on developing inertial reference instruments for two of these modules, namely the SMILES (Superconducting SubMillimeter Limb-Emission Sounder) and MAXI (Monitor of All-sky X-ray Image).
