Spectrogon AB´s filters on the Rosetta spacecraft.

Spectrogon AB (Täby, Sweden) is proud to have developed and manufactured the optical filters in the Rosetta spacecraft´s OSIRIS imaging system. The Rosetta spacecraft, orbiting comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko takes images through Spectrogon AB´s UV, VIS and NIR filters with 12 filters in the NAC and 14 filters in the WAC cameras on board.

Rosetta's OSIRIS camera instrument
The Optical, Spectroscopic, and Infrared Remote Imaging System (OSIRIS) is the main imaging system of the Rosetta spacecraft. Consisting of two cameras, the narrow-angle camera (NAC) is intended for high-resolution mapping of the nucleus, while the wide-angle camera (WAC) is optimized for mapping the gas and dust in space in the proximity of the comet.

ROSETTA wakes up and puts on it’s glasses (Made by Spectrogon!)

Wakey, Wakey! ROSETTA wakes up and puts on it’s glasses (Made by Spectrogon!)

There has been widespread media coverage in the last week of the Rosetta space probe, which was woken up on January 20th after a 31 month nap (or deep space hibernation!) for it´s coming rendezvous with Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko. The OSIRIS instrument is the main imaging system on the mission and will take pictures of the comet at a range of wavelengths selected by Spectrogon’s filters (it’s glasses!).

The Rosetta mission is one of the European Space Agency’s ”Cornerstone Missions” which means it is of very high importance both politically and scientifically. Spectrogon is very proud to have been chosen to manufacture the special filters for such a high profile and important mission. We have done our bit, it’s now up to Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko to put on a show for the cameras!
