CESAR OBSERVATORIES AND INFRASTRUCTURE

The CESAR core architecture is composed of the following elements:

CESAR MAIN CONTROL CENTRE

This is the centre from which all participating telescopes are controlled and the observation data is transferred so that it can be archived and distributed to the users. The Control Centre is split into two modules: the control module and the CESAR Data Archive.

RA Solar telescope mount model (ESA/CESAR)

 

CubeSat control antenna

The antenna is installed on the roof of building A at ESAC. This position allows it to be as close as possible to the CESAR control room, where the control computer is located. 

Status: Under commissioning and performance characterisation.
