Upkeep of the COSMOSOMAS experiment. This instrument works with fossil radiation arriving in the form of microwaves, a kind of light that the human eye cannot see but which is present throughout the Universe. It is currently being adjusted to achieve consistent data quality and improve installation security.

The COSMOSOMAS experiment has been running for several years at the Observatorio del Teide. Since 2003 work on COSMOSOMAS has been upgraded from the usual maintenance functions to a programme of improvements as a result of renewed scientific interest in these observations. The improvements largely consist of tuning to achieve reliable data quality and improving security at the installations.

Completed at 2008.
