Space activities and projects

Launch of m-NLP and ERIU

The development of the new space version of the multi-Needle Langmuir Probe (m-NLP) and EIDEL Remote Interface Unit (ERIU ) is close to completion. The instruments and system is due to be launched later this year as an In Orbit Demonstrator (IOD). Several m-NLP will be integrated with the ERIU, and will be the first payload to be integrated on the Bartolomeo platform on Colombus module on the International Space Station (ISS). Due to global events the launch dates are unceratain but was initially set to Q3 2022.

Launch of FRAMSAT-1

EIDEL is developing the Miniaturized Sun Sensor which is a small payload on an 1U CubeSat called FRAMSAT-1. The satellite is developed by the student organization Orbit.
Planned launch from Andøya Spaceport later this year, by launch provider ISAR Aerospace on their Spectrum launcher.

Launch of Rashid

EIDEL is providing a modified version of m-NLP as instrument on the rover named Rashid, a rover developed by Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Center. The instrument will measure electron density in the upper layers of the Moons thin athmosphere to find a connection to how moon dust attaches to surfaces. Take a look at our article for more information on the project.

Launch is planned later this year.

Student activities

EIDEL is a sponsor of student organization Orbit and Propulse at NTNU. Our aim is to contribute with both financing and experience to so the students succeed in their projects. We also offer paid assignments to summer interns.
