Quantifying atmospheric processes in the upper troposphere and in the stratosphere.

Description

ESP-MACCS focusses on understanding and quantifying atmospheric processes in the upper troposphere and in the stratosphere. In particular, it will make observations in tropical and sub-tropical latitudes to observe gases such as water vapour, carbon dioxide, methane, ozone and nitrous oxide as well as aerosols – all of which play a key role in the greenhouse effect and climate change.
The mission comprises three 12-litre CubeSats, each carrying thermal infrared spectrometer, as well as a visible near-infrared hyperspectral solar disk imager as a secondary instrument.
The ESP-MACCS industrial consortium consists of GomSpace (DK) as prime contractor, with Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL-SFTC, UK), GomSpace (LU), GomSpace (SE), Enpulsion (AT), Hyperion (NL) and KSAT (NO) as sub-contractors.
