Instrument Design

RAL Space frequently assembles teams of specialists to help academia and industry to design instruments. We are continually searching for ways of improving the efficiency of this process by better integration of software to enable "concurrent design", following similar innovations with our partners in NASA and ESA.

RAL space has been involved in many high profile projects over the years in which we have had to design high quality instruments for example, in conjunction with the open university, RAL produced the Ptolemy system for the Rosetta satellite.
