The space is changing rapidly.
The university and its laboratories are developing research on the territory based on prototype instruments. Whether on rovers like Curiosity, probes visiting the planets of the solar system like BepiColombo observing Mercury or even satellites observing the fluctuations of the sun or probing the Earth’s atmosphere with lasers like with Aeolus. At the same time, new platforms are being developed with a complete chain to manage them, collect and analyze their data. Operating in a constellation, nanosats provide better spatial and temporal resolution necessary to meet climate challenges. This was made possible by the development of very high-level infrastructures in order to integrate and test space equipment. For this, a network of industrial partners has been developed in the territory, in order to support these developments and develop new innovative devices for future missions. Finally, these projects allow students (Bachelor’s, Master’s) to train in the traditional elements of space and to have a better knowledge of this sector and its evolution.
The visit will take the form of stands with our industrial partners, research achievements, and the presentation of training. We also offer visits of the Integration and Testing Platform (PIT) in small groups.
