Mirion Announces Participation in JUICE Mission Exploring the Moons of Jupiter, Reflecting Continued Commitment to Big Science Applications
In September of 2017, Mirion delivered ten 16-sided PIPS detectors to the Swedish Institute of Space Physics in Kiruna, Sweden. One of these detectors was constructed into the JDC sensor for the Particle Environment Package (“PEP”) instrument on the spacecraft. The PEP instrument will study the interaction between space and Jupiter’s icy moons, particularly Ganymede, Callisto and Europa. The mission’s goal is to investigate and better understand how neutral and charged particles behave in the magnetosphere and electrical fields contained in the Jupiter system.
“Mirion takes great pride in our partnerships with the big science community and are excited to play a role in the ESA’s JUICE Mission,” said Thomas Logan, Mirion’s CEO. “Missions like this help humankind better understand our place in the universe and I’d like to commend our teams for their excellent work keeping Mirion at the cutting edge of science. We look forward to similar opportunities to apply our products and solutions in accordance with future space exploration initiatives.
