JRA1 Infrastructure Development for Supporting Planetary Missions
JRA1 aims at strengthening European expertise in the areas of planetary dynamics, geodesy and cartography, essential for planetary mission planning, operation and science data analysis. It intends to provide planetary and spacecraft ephemeris data, planetary shape and gravity models, planetary constants and various maps, with unified data formats, documentation and interactive access. It also plans to empower the large community of “professionalized” amateur astronomers.
Further information on JRA1 is available here.
