Instrument

The ARCSTONE team has developed a spectrometer instrument concept that is simplistic and reliable. It is anticipated that this ARCSTONE formulation team will be in competition with other mission & instrument development teams; therefore, we cannot show the ARCSTONE instrument designs on this public web-site.

In 2015, through a competitive process, NASA LaRC selected Resonon to design and build an instrument breadboard. Assembly and testing will be completed in 2016. This same team is creating mission requirements (levels 1-3), developing a concept for a flight instrument, and creating a technology development plan that culminates in ground testing and finally with a full CubeSat mission. Funding sources for technology development beyond the breadboard are being sought.
