A Kick-Off meerting was held on 13 November 2014 between TAS (F) and RUAG (CH) for the manufacturing and delivery of a total of 7 Radiation Monitor Units (RMU) for flight on the future Meteosat Third Generation (MTG) spacecraft. The RMUs are based on the ESA Next Generation Radiation Monitor (NGRM) development initiated by the Space Environments and Effects Section and run by a consortium led by RUAG.

The first flight of the NGRM Proto-Flight Model is planned on the EDRS-C spacecraft. The NGRM development is supported by the ESA General Support Technology Programme (GSTP) and Space Situational Awareness (SSA) programme under ESA contract 4000104315.
