The Swedish National Space Board (Rymdstyrelsen) has decided to fund the MATS satellite

This is fantastic news for us at MISU and for our partners at Chalmers, at KTH and in Swedish space industry. 15 years after the launch of Odin, MISU now has the scientific responsibility for the next Swedish research satellite. The acronym MATS stands for Mesospheric Airglow/Aerosol Tomography and Spectroscopy. If all work goes as planned, MATS will be launched towards the end of 2017.
