NOMAD – Nadir and Occultation for MArs Discovery (wavelength range: 200-650nm and 2.2-4.3µm)

The NOMAD instrument, onboard Exomars’ 2016 Trace Gas Orbiter spacecraft, is a 3-channel spectrometer suite to conduct a spectroscopic survey of Mars’ atmosphere in the UV, visible and IR spectral ranges, in search for traces of life.

NOMAD was built by an international consortium led by IASB-BIRA [B] as Principle Investigator and OIP Sensor Systems as Industrial Prime. Lambda-X [B] was subcontractor.
OIP was responsible for the optical design and the Assembly, Integration and Verification (AIV) of the payload (Phase B/C/D).
Project is funded by ESA/PRODEX.

Status: Launch March 2016

Type: Multispectral
