Submillimeter-Wave Spectrometer for Small Satellites (SSSS)

Active Technology Project

Project Introduction

This effort matures critical technologies for reducing the size, mass and power consumption of submillimeter-wave instruments to enable integration in to a small satellite or cubesat platform.

The key technology is a low the cost, mass, volume and power consumption of submillimeter-wave spectrometer.  This new technolgy be appropriate to studying the Venusian or other planetary atmospheres from a small-sat/cubesat platform.
