RAL Space has wide experience in the processing, analysis and archiving of science data. We deal with all aspects of data relating to astronomy, solar environmental physics and Earth observation. We participate in studies for future missions, the development of data processing and archiving systems, the development of international standards for space systems, the long term preservation of data and the dissemination of data from space missions to the scientific community.
We also operate the RAL ground station which is used to communicate with spacecraft on a range of scientific missions. A large part of the work of the Division is the development of software to make these activities possible.
