LPP participation to Cluster

LPP contribution to CLUSTER is important.
We are PI (Principal Investigator) of the STAFF instrument. We have built the magnetic antennas and weveform unit and LESIA has built the spectrum analyser STAFF/SA.
We contribute to PEACE and WHISPER experiments as co-Is, without having built an instrument.
We also used to be part of the FGM team (co-I).

Consortium WEC :
STAFF et WHISPER are part of the WEC consortium (Wave Experiment Consortium).
