The NenuFAR radio telescope (New Extension in Nançay Upgrading LoFAR), based at the Nançay radio astronomy station, began its major observation programmes on 1 July 2019. The LPC2E is one of the main laboratories behind NenuFAR.
The colour camera CLUPI (Close-UP Imager) was delivered on July 11, 2019 to ESA for integration on the rover of the ESA-Roscosmos ExoMars 2020 mission. CLUPI is the colour close-up imager on board the next ESA mission to the Mars surface. It is the equivalent of the hand-lens used by all geologists during field work and thus it will play an important role to achieve the mission objectives. The LPC2E was responsible for encapsulating and testing the image sensor of the CLUPI instrument in the frame of a collaboration with Frances Westall (CBM, CNRS Orléans) who is Co-PI of the CLUPI project.
