S.P.A.I.C. Develops nanosatellites with the aim to allow a low cost access to Space to entities having a goal to perform scientific experiments in a microgravity environment. S.P.A.I.C. Nanosatellites, small sized (cubic shape with side ranging from 10 up to 40 cm) and very light (less than 10 kilograms) can be customized to fulfil the client’s requirements.
The experience achieved by S.P.A.I.C. in the field of nanosatellites derives from projects developed by ASSET since 2004
- Achademic nanosatellite PiCPoT (Piccolo Cubo del Politecnico di Torino), launched in July 2006, first academic nanosatellite developed among Politecnico di Torino.
- Cubesat E-st@r, developed by ASSET and realized in cooperation with a team of aerospace engineering students since 2008, selected by ESA as payload for Vega Maiden Flight, foreseen in December 2010.
