NSSDCA ID: 2021-093A-02

Mission Name: Lucy


L'Ralph comprises two instruments, the Linear Etalon Imaging Spectral Array (LEISA) and the Multispectral Visible Imaging Camera (MVIC). LEISA is an infrared specrtrometer designed to scan the surfaces of the asteroids to determine the composition using absorption lines in the infrared spectrum. MVIC will use visible color images to constrain the composition.
