3rd Europa Jupiter System Mission (EJSM) Instrument Workshop Held - 02.17.2010
The third Europa Jupiter System Mission (EJSM) Instrument Workshop was held on January 18-20, 2010 at ESA’s European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC) in Noordwijk, the Netherlands. The first two EJSM instrument workshops were held in the U.S. in 2008 and 2009 (https://opfm.jpl.nasa.gov/InstrumentWorkshop). This third EJSM instrument workshop, the first to be held in Europe, took place a few months after the initiation of the EJSM instrument studies in Europe, following the ESA Call for Declaration of Interest in Instrumentation for the EJSM mission.
The main focus of the workshop was to address the technical challenges (in particular the radiation environment and planetary protection requirements) that need to be taken into account by potential EJSM instrument providers for both JEO and JGO in preparations for the upcoming AO, planned to be issued in early 2011.
