In-orbit testing of a radiation monitor and a single event latch-up experiment.

Description

In-orbit testing of a radiation monitor and a single event latch-up experiment. Twofold setup of a combined radiation monitoring unit based on the CERN Radiation Monitor (RadMon) system coupled with a Single Event Latch-up (SEL) test station. RadMon technology has already been fully demonstrated and validated at CERN for its ground application and it is being optimized to comply with space applications constraints. The payload and the entire CubeSat will be qualified at CERN High energy AcceleRator Mixed field facility (CHARM) in a Low Earth Orbit (LEO) equivalent radiation field.
