LAGRANGE is a space gravitational wave observatory design that maintains all important LISA science at about half the cost and with reduced technical risk. It consists of three drag-free spacecraft in the most stable geocentric formation, the Earth-Moon L3, L4, and L5 Lagrange points.
The Space-Time Asymmetry Research (STAR) project, a jointly-proposed concept by the NASA Ames Research Center (NASA ARC), Stanford University, and international partners from Saudi Arabia (KACST), Germany, and the United Kingdom, will test isotropy and symmetry of space-time at unprecedented precision.STAR takes an incremental mission approach, flying instruments with progressively increased precision and measurement scope in each of five flights.
The Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) experiment, formerly a joint venture of the European Space Agency (ESA) and NASA, is designed to detect and observe in detail gravitational waves from astronomical sources.
- Small Satellite Series
In cooperation with NASA Ames and KACST a series of small satellites is developed to demonstrate and test core technologies for the above mentioned science missions. The first one in this series is the UV LED Satellite. Following missions will demonstrate the Differential Optical Shadow Sensor (DOSS) and eventually lead to a small drag-free satellite.
