  • 1 DPHY - Physics Instrumentation Environment Space

    The Department of Physics, Instrumentation, Environment and Space (DPHY) designs innovative instruments and evaluates certain aerospace environments and their consequences on on-board systems... The space environment and its effects on electronic materials and components, and the resulting charge and contamination on satellites
  • 2 Modeling of the Earth's radiation belts

  • 3 Progress announced for the qualification of solar panels

    Space environment specialists have introduced innovations in the analysis of electrostatic discharge propagation on full-scale panels. In 2010, Onera conducted a test campaign, a worldwide first of its kind, subjecting a full-scale space solar panel to a large number of electrostatic discharges
  • 4 The treacherous rays of the sun

    "However, with the miniaturisation of components, the sensitivity of circuits to radiation increases" says Sophie Duzellier, a researcher from ONERA's Space Environment Department. This miniaturisation also involves decreasing the electronic circuit supply voltages
  • 5 A new tool to characterize the atmospheric radiation environment

    The objectives of this operational measurement phase, which will last several years, are on one hand to study the dynamics of the atmospheric radiation environment as a function of the atmospheric physical conditions, and of space meteorology, and on other hand to study Single Event Effects in electronic components
  • 6 DEMR - Electromagnetism and Radar

    The DEMR (Electromagnetism and radar department) combines all ONERA's skills in electromagnetism and its applications for future radar and communication systems: ground or on-board radar, communications (space, aeronautical, terrestrial), radio navigation, electronic warfare (listening-in ELINT (electronic intelligence) or jamming)
  • 7 DMAS - Materials And Structures

    The activities of the Materials and Structures Department, DMAS, deal with the microstructure of materials (from the atomic scale up to the macroscopic scale), the static and dynamic behaviour to rapid or vibratory dynamics of structures in their environment up to crash or impact, and also include the design, development and characterisation of materials and elements of metallic, ceramic or composite structures
  • 8 DOTA - Optics and Associated Techniques

    The mission of the Optics and Associated Techniques Department (DOTA) is to conduct studies and research linked to the use of the optical domain (electromagnetic waves between the medium ultraviolet (200 nm) and the THz range (1 THz~ 300 m)). These studies are conducted primarily for the benefit of the fields of Aeronautics, Space and Defence, but also for other fields such as security, the environment, astronomy and medical imaging
