We perform research and development of technologies and instruments which feed into the next generation of missions for space science. Our research provides developments which feed into the subject areas of astronomy, planetary science, solar physics, Earth observation and space weather.
We have a vibrant community of research staff and PhD students, and active involvement in many of the main space science missions which are currently under development. Our expertise has many applications well beyond the bounds of space science – attracting interest from a range of industrial partners.
The key elements of this research discipline are:
- The Centre for Electronic Imaging
- Space Instrumentation.
