astrophysics exoplanets Projects

We use space-based and ground-based instrumentation to learn about the universe beyond our solar system. Our projects and missions make measurements across the electromagnetic (EM) spectrum and extend to multi-messenger astrophysics. Our science goals include understanding the history and structure of the universe, probing regions of extreme physics and element formation, and searching for habitable planets and potentially extraterrestrial life. We have scientists and engineers with many years of experience developing world class instrumentation such as specialized detectors for different parts of the EM spectrum as well as related technologies. Our specialty is to incorporate these technologies into complex systems and to use sophisticated instrument simulations to determine that the capabilities will achieve our science goals.
