Space mission development

Despite decades of research at BIRA-IASB, Earth’s atmosphere has not revealed all of its secrets yet. New space missions are being developed to further investigate the composition of the Earth’s atmosphere, like ESA’s:

  • PICASSO CubeSat
  • ALTIUS missions

Both initiated by BIRA-IASB.

Scientists’ insatiable curiosity makes us dive deeper into our solar system. After our latest flagships (ROSINA on Rosetta, SOIR on Venus Express, NOMAD on ExoMars), our engineers are working on the next generation instruments to be launched towards Venus and even Jupiter.
