Work Context

The SVOM mission is a Sino-French space project dedicated to the study of transient events in the Universe. It should be put into orbit at the end of 2021. It is an observation platform capable of rapidly pointing gamma ray bursts, high-energy explosions that can be detected even in the distant universe. If the event is considered of interest, a ground tracking network is activated. The satellite observes at several wavelengths (gamma, X-rays and visible light) using dedicated cameras. A group of laboratories is in charge of processing the data from each camera. The role of the Strasbourg Observatory is to develop the processing chain that will transform the data transmitted by the satellite's X-ray camera into scientific products.
