Company Description: The Open University has committed, through the creation of the Space Strategic Research Area (Space SRA), to generating a step-change in its capability to address global challenges and its role in the growth of the space sector of the UK economy. The aim of the Space SRA is to contribute to significant cross-fertilization of people, instrumentation, and ideas. To support research infrastructure, develop research leadership, and cultivate new collaborations and partnerships.
The Ultraviolet and VIsible Spectrometer (UVIS) is one of the three channels of the NOMAD instrument on-board the ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter (TGO). UVIS has collected a vast repository of data that has yet to be analysed. The proposed project will exploit these data to improve the characterisation the UVIS CCD detector. The characterisation will provide a significant improvement to the final atmospheric science which can be achieved with the UVIS channel.
