The STM is the first model developed within the MERTIS project.
MERTIS is a low weight Infrared Imaging Spectrometer for the BepiColombo ESA mission to observe the Mercury.
It is developed by the DLR, RM-OS and PF in close cooperation with the Universität Münster, Kayser Threde GmbH and other scientific and industrial partners. For further details, see more.
