EnVision - where next for Venus?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


EnVision was proposed in response to ESA's 2010 M3 call but was not selected, primarily because of its technical requirements. In light of a detailed debrief, current development is focused on the surface science suite. Originally intended to use Sentinel-1 spares, the radar subsystem is now being redesigned to address additional surface science objectives, and to provide for global surface coverage and a longer mission duration. Under development is a passive detector for one-pass interferometry and an active cooling system.
