ESA places contract as part of Innovation Triangle Initiative

A contract has been agreed between ESA and University College London Consultants Ltd., acting on behalf of the Mullard Space Science Laboratory (MSSL), to investigate devices for monitoring plasma and radiation based on miniaturisation technologies.  A low resource analyser using Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems fabrication techniques is being developed and generic technologies suitable for creating highly integrated “matchbox” sized analyser systems that are small, fast, and more capable will be investigated.
