In the frame of the Missions of Opportunity enabled by international cooperation, ESA and NASA have coordinated studies of gravity monitoring constellations optimised to observe mass changes and transport in the Earth system. The objective of the NGGM – Next Generation Gravity Mission (also known as MAGIC – for Mass-change And Geosciences International Constellation ) is the long-term monitoring of the temporal variations of Earth’s gravity field at high resolution in time (down to 3 days) and space (100 km). NGGM/MAGIC will observe Earth mass change and reinforce services by monitoring hydrology, cryosphere, oceanography, solid Earth and climate change. This gravity mission evolution will provide continuity of science and services with respect to predecessor missions like GRACE, GOCE and GRACE Follow-On and will complement other ESA Earth Explorer programme and Copernicus missions. The main objective of this activity will be to detailed design, procure and test in relevant environment a reduce Engineering Model (EM) of the Front End Electronics (FEEU) suited for the NGGM accelerometer.
