MEO orbit to test CubeSat platform technologies in the highly radiative environment.
Main goals are to perform scientific experiments to deepen the knowledge of our Solar System, and to demonstrate innovative technologies to enhance the quality of life on Earth.
ALPHA will bring in orbit the second generation of ARTICA developed by Spacemind that will be also responsible for bus procurement based on SM products, AIT and test.
Hosting different technologies designed and built to endure the highly radiative MEO Space environment. In fact, the CubeSat is named after the highly ionizing form of particle radiation that is also present in the Van Allen belts, where the target orbit is located.
