In this division, we research and develop high-precision instruments for space missions, including navigation systems for climate research satellites, camera and navigation systems, and magnetometers for exploring planets and the solar system. We also use the instruments for research. In addition, we work to optimise the quality and reliability of space systems measurements. The division is headed by professor John Leif Jørgensen.
Research and development activities in the division focus on high-precision instrumentation systems for space missions and research based on data gathered via these instruments. The division design camera-based navigation systems for space missions and instruments for measuring the Earth's and other planets' magnetic fields from uncrewed space crafts as well as other space missions systems.
