Abstract

This paper describes the MISSUS experiment (Meteorological Integrated Sensor SUite for Stratospheric Analysis), developed at CISAS (Center for Studies and Activities for Space "G. Colombo") with the aim to characterize the most significant environmental parameters of thin atmospheres and fully reconstruct attitude and trajectory. MISSUS flew onboard the BEXUS 15 ESA/SSC/DLR stratospheric balloon in September 2012 and it has been designed to collect meteorological and attitude data and validate the atmospheric models during the ascent, cruise and descent phases. The flight provided an unique opportunity for testing the onboard innovative instrumentation, which has been designed basing on CISAS previous know-how on balloon flights and space missions. In particular, MISSUS temperature sensor is the prototype of the MarsTem, the instrument which will be part of the DREAMS suite (Dust characterization, Risk assessment, and Environment Analyser on the Martian Surface) onboard ESA Mission Exomars 2016. The design and the results are presented.
