PRETTY Phase C/D/E/F - Passive REflecTomeTry and dosimetrY

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

PRETTY (Passive REflectometry and DosimetrY) is an advanced CubeSat mission hosting two scientific payloads for altimetry and dosimetry.
The first payload is a passive reflectometry system adopting a novel approach and exploiting GPS or GALILEO signals for earth observation. The second payload targets Space weather observation by implementing a radiation monitor on board of the CubeSat. The radiation monitor will allow to correlate the behaviour and performance of commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) electronics components on board of the spacecraft with the actual radiation environment.
