UK Planetary Community Activities for Jupiter/Europa and Titan/Enceladus Missions to November 2008 - Request for Short-Term Bridging Funding.

Lead Research Organisation: University of Oxford
Department Name: Oxford Physics


This request describes bridging funding we will require in the short term leading to the NASA/ESA decision between a Jupiter/Europa or Titan/Enceladus mission as the next Flagship/L-class outer planetary mission. This will enable the UK planetary community to continue to play its leading role in defining the science objectives, mission requirements and areas of technology required in order to fly one of these two missions. The request totals £50K at 80% FTE and covers activities from Imperial College London; Leicester University; MSSL; Open University; Oxford/RAL; UCL.
