Final presentation of the RVS instrument study

Final presentation of the RVS instrument study

31 March 2004

The first phase of the RVS instrument design has come to an end with the final presentation of the work performed to date by the RVS Consortium.

This scientific consortium comprising Mullard Space Science Laboratory, Observatoire de Paris-Meudon, Brunel University, University of Leicester, Osservatorio di Asiago, and University of Ljubljana, and led by Professor Mark Cropper (MSSL), worked with ESA and the industrial System Level Technical Assistance contractors under the direction of ESA Study Manager Oscar Pace. The consortium has refined all aspects of the instrument design (optics, detector, mechanical, thermal, and on-board processing) providing a baseline design for Gaia's radial velocity spectrograph. This will be refined further during the Definition Study phase, extending to mid-2005.
