SIF #2 Day 2: Omnisys Instruments Needs

  1. 1. Omnisys Instruments More space insight RIT, Kiruna, 2016-05-11 Johan Riesbeck
  2. 2. • Developing and manufacturing high performance electronics hardware for satellites and ground based astronomy • 35 engineers between B.Sc to Ph.D. • Founded in 1992, delivered space flight hardware to Odin, SMART-1, SMILES and PRISMA • User specific projects – Satellite borne instruments – Ground Based Astronomy – Research/Demonstrator Projects • Private, independent, self-financed SME Omnisys Instruments
  3. 3. • Company founded in 1992 • First major assignment ODIN project – spectrometer and phase lock system • Continuous development programs with ESA – First contract 1993 • 1998-2001: SMART-1 satellite • Self financed growth to 32 employees • More and more ”established” as Swedish space/research SME • 2007 Alma contract for 60 Radiometers – 2010 Successfully delivered • 2011 Omnisys prime contractor for STEAMR • 2014 Flight contract for SWI on JUICE • 2015 Flight contract for Airbus • 2016 Flight contract for HABIT History
  4. 4. • Launched in 2001 – Mission planned for 2 years – Still up and running • Omnisys hardware: – Back-end autocorrelation spectrometer – Local oscillator incl. phase lock system – Filterbank spectrometer – Radiometer control hardware – Radiometer system validation SW • Unique benefits – Astonomy ant atmospheric observations – Ozon since 2001 – H2O in interstellar space – 300 peer review articles – Made in Sweden ODIN Radiometer
  5. 5. • Swedish led formation flying mission • Launched this summer • Omnisys delivered PCDU for main and target satellites in 2008 • Key data of the Main PCDU: – Solar array power: 600 W – Number of users (LCL): 36 – User power: 28 V regulated – Battery Energy: > 250 Wh – Control interface: CAN bus and pulse telecommands. PRISMA PCDU:s
  6. 6. • Scope of project is to design and produce 58 complete 183 GHz water vapor radiometers for the ALMA telescope in Chile • 18 month development & 18 month production time • Strict performance requirements – stability, sensitivity, accuracy, optical – 20 years lifetime&no maintenance – Limited volume, mass & power • Repeatable manufacturing & verification • 3 customers – ALMA, ESO, end users Alma Water Vapour Radiometers
  7. 7. • Limb sounding @340 GHz – Array receiver -14 beams – Optimized for upper troposphere – down to 6km • Research profile – Climate Change – Stratospheric/Tropospheric exchange – Ozone changes – Water Vapor - Uncertainty of clouds • Deselected for EE7, now in joint SWE/CAN phase A study STEAMR - PREMIER
  8. 8. • SWI – submm-wave instrument on JUICE (JUpiter Icy moon Explorer) – ”Chemistry, meteorology and structure of Jupiter’s middle atmosphere” – ”Characterize atmospheres, Ganymede, Europa and Callisto - exploration of their habitable zones • Two receivers on 600 GHz (or 600 GHz & 1200 GHz) • Omnisys scope – Mixers and LNA:s – Correlator back-end (ACS) JUICE/SWI
  9. 9. • Mesospheric Airglow/Aerosol Tomography – tomografi av luftsken och aerosoller i mesosfären • Vetenskapen drivs av Stockholms universitet, Chalmers och KTH • Omnisys bygger instrumentet som studerar – Nattlysande moln – Syremolekyler i atmosfären mellan 5 och 10 mil upp i luften – Vågor som skapar molnens form • UV/IR kamera med 2+2 kanaler MATS
  10. 10. • Omnisys builds complete systems and subsystems • Critical components are subject to research collaborations: – Schottky mixers and multipliers >200 GHz – mHEMT/INP MMIC up to 200 GHz – Custom Design Signal processing chips (Full custom ASIC:s) • Scientific partners – Users • Earth & Space Science, Chalmers – Technology • Chalmers – Microtechnology & Nanoscience (Chalmers) – Signals & Systems (Chalmers) – Computer Science (Chalmers) • IAF, Germany • Joint activities – National scientific clusters, FP7/H2020 projects, joint ESA projects, industrial PhD:s The team - Omnisys and Academy
  11. 11. • Collaboration with Academy • End-user scientists who wants to develop instruments together with industry. • Early involvement of industry in instrument development => maximize scientific output • Collaboration between end-user scientists and technology development research. Industry Needs
  12. 12. • Terahertz components, signal processing, antenna systems. • Thermal solutions and composite structures. • Optical test and verification methods • Electro-chemical processes. • ? Examples
