  • Athiray, P. S.; Narendranath, S.; Sreekumar, P.; Grande, Manuel (2014-12)
    We describe the first unambiguous evidence of enhanced Sodium on the lunar surface revealed by the Chandrayaan-1 X-ray Spectrometer (C1XS). The C1XS onboard the Chandrayaan-1 spacecraft was designed to map the surface ...
  • Grande, Manuel; Maddison, Brian J.; Sreekumar, P.; Huovelin, Johani; Kellett, Barry J.; Howe, Chris J.; Crawford, Ian A.; Smith, D. R.; Team, The C. X. S. (2009-02-25)
    The Chandrayaan-1 X-ray Spectrometer (C1XS) is a compact X-ray spectrometer for the Chandrayaan-1 lunar mission. It exploits heritage from the D-C1XS instrument on ESA's SMART-1 mission. C1XS is designed to measure absolute ...
  • Parker, D.; Browning, R.; Waltham, N.; Grande, Manuel (2003)
    The D-CIXS Compact X-ray Spectrometer will provide high quality spectroscopic mapping of the Moon, the primary science target of the ESA SMART-1 mission. D-CIXS consists of a high throughput spectrometer, which will perform ...
  • Kellett, B.; Perry, C. H.; Howe, C.; Grande, Manuel (2007-01)
    The SMART-1 mission has recently arrived at the Moon. Its payload includes D-CIXS, a compact X-ray spectrometer. SMART-1 is a technology evaluation mission, and D-CIXS is the first of a new generation of planetary X-ray ...
  • Grande, Manuel; Barnes, David Preston; Cook, A.; Tyler, Laurence (2008-09)
    A proposal entitled Europlanet Research Infrastructure (RI) has been submitted to the EU Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). This aims to “consolidate the integration of the planetary science community (which started with ...
  • Grande, Manuel; Knight, Thomas Matthew Carpenter (2013-10-17)
    In November 2012, a workshop on the topic of designing spacecraft for operations in harsh radiation environments was held at Aberystwyth University. The immediate motivation was the European Space Agency (ESA) JUICE mission ...
  • Forster, David Robert; Denton, M. H.; Grande, Manuel; Perry, C. H. (2013-07)
    Ion composition data, taken by the Combined Release and Radiation Effects Satellite Magnetospheric Ion Composition Spectrometer instrument, are investigated across eight high-speed solar wind-stream-driven storms (HSSs) ...
  • Carter, James Andrew (Aberystwyth UniversityMathematical and Physical Sciences, 2013)
    Abstract What is the composition of the surface of the Moon? This investigation aims to map the abundances of some of the main rock-forming elements over the surface of the Moon. Accurately determining the ...
  • Dixon, Patrick Joseph; MacDonald, E. A.; Funsten, H. O.; Glocer, A.; Grande, Manuel; Kletzing, C.; Larson, B. A.; Reeves, G.; Skoug, R. M.; Spence, H.; Thomsen, M. F. (2015-09-29)
    The twin Van Allen Probes spacecraft witnessed a series of lobe encounters between 0200 and 0515 UT on 14 November 2012. Although lobe entry had been observed previously by other spacecraft, the two Van Allen Probe spacecraft ...
  • Kellett, B.; Dunkin, S. K.; Grande, Manuel (2001)
    Mercury is the little known innermost terrestrial planet. A number of significant questions remain unanswered. We describe areas in which a compact imaging X-ray spectrometer could make a valuable contribution. It can ...
  • Winningham, D.; Grande, Manuel; Lundin, R.; Barabash, S. (2006)
    Auroras are caused by accelerated charged particles precipitating along magnetic field lines into a planetary atmosphere, the auroral brightness being roughly proportional to the precipitating particle energy flux. The ...
  • Forster, David Robert (Aberystwyth UniversityMathematical and Physical Sciences, 2011-09)
    Charge exchange is investigated as a source of magnetospheric He+ . Ionic data from the Magnetospheric Ion Composition Spectrometer (MICS) on the Combined Release and Radiation Effects Satellite (CRRES) are investigated ...
