SWIR instrument and test a magnetic measurement card useful for LISA.
Help us position ourselves in the market, learn what a project of this style entails and carry out the first launch of a Canarian satellite at the end of 2019, early 2020. ALISIO will have as first objective observations in the SWIR range and as a secondary objective to test a magnetic measurement card useful for LISA. DRAGO (Demonstrator for the Remote Analysis of Ground Observations) a SWIR instrument.
The main payload, the camera called DRAGO-2, has been fully developed by IACTEC-Espacio, and operates in the SWIR (Short Wave InfraRed) range between 1.0 and 1.7 µm. It is an improved version of its predecessor, DRAGO-1. Its data will allow measurements to be made in the short wave range both in the Canary Islands and in other parts of the world and will allow IACTEC-Espacio to deepen its research on the different applications of this sensor.
Among others, the ALISIO-1 satellite will provide relevant information for:
In terms of communications, it will be a pioneer in the establishment of optical Space-Earth communications.
