FUEGO’s scientific objective is to detect the very beginnings of wildfires, and to provide real-time information on a fire’s intensity, evolution and movement. The system is an imager operating in two IR bands (4 and 9 microns wavelength), with a visible context imager.
ISI is a three-telescope interferometric array that uses heterodyne detection at 11 microns wavelength (27 THz).
The origin and nature of Ultra-High Energy Cosmic Rays (UHECRs) and neutrinos (UHEN) remain unsolved in contemporary astroparticle physics. The Extreme Universe Space Observatory Super Pressure Balloon II Mission (EUSO-SPB2) is one of several precursor missions for a space mission (JEM-EUSO) that would be dedicated to UHECR research.
The Mapper of the IGM Spin Temperature (MIST) aim is to detect the global 21-cm signal from the cosmic dawn and the dark age.
The primary physics objective of STAR is to study the formation and characteristics of the quark-gluon plasma (QGP), a state of matter believed to exist at sufficiently high energy densities.
Experiment to Detect the Global EoR Signature (EDGES). Detect the global 21-cm signal from the cosmic dawn. Characterize the diffuse synchrotron radiation from the Milky Way.
COSI is a wide field of view gamma-ray telescope that obtains high spectral resolution from 0.2 to 5 MeV, enabling sensitive narrow line imaging of the entire Galaxy.
