Space missions

The LPP space plasma team is involved in space missions by building experiments that fly on board international space agencies satellites or spacecraft.

The expertise of LPP in this area concerns the magnetic sensors, ion and plasma spectrometers, onboard receivers.

Participation in a space experiment, besides instruments realisation, involves software developments. These are used to validate the data and to transform telemetry into databases to enable their scientific analysis. The data are archived in data centers opened to the entire scientific community. Specific scientific tools are also developed.

The various missions in which the team is involved are described in this section, whether in flight or in progress, the data being accessible or not in public data bases.
