Over the lifetime of the programme, CEOI has funded a wide range of technology development projects, the majority of which have led to instruments which are now flying or scheduled to fly in satellite missions. These have been summarised in the figure below:
Many of these projects have been summarised as a Case Study and you can find out more by clicking on the links below:
