Technical Platforms

IRAP makes available to the projects a range of technical rooms and high level equipment which lead to develop, integrate and calibrate instruments to be embarked on board space observatories and exploration missions of the Earth's environment and of the solar system ( Sispace), or to equip the focus of large ground-based telescopes ( Sisol).

These platforms are widely open to the national and international teams (outside of the UPS) as they host large collaborations.

Indeed, the growth of these activities requires the development and the focus of new sensors and their calibratiion to the vacuum under the irradiation of charged flux and/or photons particles. The increasing miniaturization of the electronic components and the need to manufacture sensors free from defects require the use of "white" rooms including controlled rooms with regard to their biological contamination (planetary protection).
