UVS «Ultraviolet Spectrograph»

The UVS instrument (Ultraviolet Spectrograph) was selected jointly by NASA and ESA for the JUICE payload. UVS is the fifth in a series of ultraviolet imaging spectrographs developed for space science missions.

The French contribution covers the supply and characterization of the instrument’s diffraction grating by the LATMOS atmospheres, environments and space observations laboratory.
