PROJECT TITLE:

Technological demonstrator - Radiation orbital monitor based on the Spacepix sensor​


PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

By implementing the presented project, the technology available to ESC and FNPSE CTU will be proved in the space environment, and thus will have achieved TRL 9. The technology is a radiation detector based on a new SpacePix ASIC sensing element. The project will further support the CTU FNPSE team, to the VZLU team it will bring the very much needed information on the radiation activity to which the cubesat VZLUSAT-2 will be exposed on the orbits. Also the support to the communication datalink via Pilsen Ground Station is concerned.
