Romania is leading the way in an ambitious project to build an instrument to detect and monitor tiny particles suspended in the air. The new ‘lidar’– the first of its kind in Europe – is set to contribute to ESA’s satellites that focus on the atmosphere.

According to a contract signed today at ESA headquarters in Paris, the Romanian National Institute for Research and Development in Optoelectronics will head the new Multiply project to develop Europe’s first airborne multiwavelength high spectral resolution lidar. The instrument, which will take over two years to build, is designed to probe the atmosphere from an aircraft to detect and map aerosols.
