Monitoring of JUICE Optical Fibers During Thermal Cycles Keeping the Optical Connectors at Different Stable Cryogenic Temperatures in 3-Chambers Setup
Two types of multimode fibers (50µm and 400µm) will be used for the scalar sensor of the JUICE (Jupiter Icy Moon Explorer program) magnetometer. This optical sensor will be placed at the end of a boom. These multimode fibers will transmit modulated laser light through the sensor, the light source, and the detector electronics being located within the spaceship.
NewSpace is an approach that focuses on lowering the barriers to entry to space industry, by providing cheaper access to space… One of the major characteristics of the NewSpace era is the fundamental shift from an industry which was heavily dependent on government agencies to a more agile and an independent private sector that relies on innovation, working with much smaller budgets than the early space industry.
