Space Systems Group

Welcome to the home page of the Space Systems Group, Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering at the University of Sheffield, UK. As a world class research group in the field of experimental and theoretical space plasma and solar physics our aim is to investigate the processes that give rise to the Solar Wind at the Sun, its subsequent propagation through the solar system, its interaction the planets, and the effect this has on our local geospace environment. Further information regarding these topics may be accessed using from the Research button in the menu above.

As well as scientific research, our group is involved in the design, manufacture, and operation of satellite borne instrumentation (see the Projects link above).
