PoleCATS, Conceptual And Tiny Spectrometer, a miniaturised plasma analyser was developed at UCL’s Mullard Space Science Laboratory, by a UKSEDS team from universities all around the country. The project is one of many in the REXUS (Rocket EXperiments for University Students) program which allows students from universities across Europe to carry out scientific and technological experiments on European Space Agency research sounding rockets. PoleCATS was selected in December 2011 for flight in May 2013. Full details of the project can be found on the team’s website.
