The Space Science Group in UCD has been involved with the European Space Agency (ESA) on several missions, from initial proposals to data-analysis and science.

integralThe group has had major contributions to the INTEGRAL satellite (in collaboration with DIAS and IT Tallaght) in the design and provision of the on-ground software analysis tools for the Optical Monitoring Camera instrument.

McBreen, one of the co-founders of Parameter Space, also spent a number of years at the Max Planck Institute in Garching, analysing real-time data as a member of the NASA Gamma-Ray Burst Monitor (GBM) team. As part of this effort, McBreen also helped develop the software systems for science analysis of GBM data.
