The Venus Emissivity Mapper (VEM) Concept


Based on experience gained from using the VIRTIS instrument on VenusExpress to observe the surface of Venus and the new high temperature laboratory exper- iments, we have developed the multi-spectral Venus Emissivity Mapper (VEM) to study the surface of Ve- nus. VEM imposes minimal requirements on the spacecraft and mission design and can therefore be added to any future Venus mission. Ideally, the VEM instrument will be combined with a high-resolution radar mapper to provide accurate topographic infor- mation, as it is done on the VERITAS mission
