ASSERT (ASteroid Sounding Experiment by Radiowave Transmission) is a radar to instrument the Mascot lander, which is proposed in the frame of future Near Earth Asteroid missions. This low frequency radar is based on the CONSERT (Comet Nucleus Sounding Experiment by Radiowave Transmission) experiment onboard the Rosetta probe. It is a unique opportunity to sound the internal structure of the target. Its objective is to achieve the tomography of the asteroid, both in transmission and in… CONTINUE READING
