Earth Observation satellites
Solid Earth Observatories, including Seismological Monitoring Stations
at BsC, MsC and PhD levels and European networking in astronomy and geosciences.
using passive diffraction limited techniques of solar system planets and adaptive optics R&D.
geostationnary and low orbit satellites.
with versatile focal instruments with and field photopoalrimetric CCD imging, EMCCD 1kx1k diffraction limited imaging, a prototype of large-field adaptive optics for high contrast imaging in the IR (up to the H 1.6µ band).
for remote observations of transcient events (astronomical gamma bursts, space debris, NEO asteroids, etc..).
integrated in the global network of the RESIF broadband sismometry.
for lunar and satellite laser-ranging (fast tracking mount), with secondary instrumentations : e.g. adaptive optics for imaging in the visible of low orbit satellites and space-debris survey programs in addition to time-frequency ground-space synchronization.
for the long term (since 35 years) solar variability follow-up and simultaneous atmospheric turbulence monitoring applicable to space-weathering programs.
