The latter is in charge of contributing ISSIS, contributing in a relevant way in the ground segment of the mission, whose in-flight operation will be shared between Moscow and Madrid.

ISSIS is the first instrument developed for ultraviolet imaging, which operates in Earth's orbit above 35,000 kilometers above the surface. Its main function is to make highly sensitive observations in the UV range and to make it possible to observe the halos of galaxies and young planetary systems. It has a compact and versatile design, consisting of two highly sensitive ultraviolet detectors capable of spectroscopy in both the far and near ultraviolet (120 nm).
