Micro-camera & Space Exploration has completed phases B and B+ of the development of the instrument MCP (Micro-cameras and Photometers) on board the microsatellite TARANIS of CNES. TARANIS is intented to characterize lumious phenomena linked to storm activity (sprites, etc.).
MCP is composed of two digital micro-cameras and three photometers. Two processing units allow to manage the experiment and process the data from the photometers and the micro-cameras.
