Research divisions

The department has six research divisions.

We use satellites, spacecrafts, drones and airplanes to study phenomena on Earth and in space.

We handle the process from the first idea until an instrument is built and launched into space to retrieve data that our researchers analyse and publish. We present our knowledge in scientific publications, at conferences, through the media, and presentations to decision-makers and the general public.

We participate in missions with ESA, NASA, national space organisations, and universities in many parts of the world.
