Launch of the Lume-1 Nanosatellite
The Lume-1 nanosatellite was launched on December 27, at 03:07 AM (CET), on a Russian Soyuz rocket. It is part of the European project FireRS, whose goal is the detection and monitoring of forest fires. Lume-1, developed within the University of Vigo by Alén Space team, includes all our hardware and software technology, which allows to deploy multiple solutions based on communications.
How We Do It
The Alén Space’s team has worked for more than 10 years in the development of nanosatellites projects, from consultancy to the design, fabrication and operation of the CubeSats once in space. Our work processes are based on rigorous quality standards from the European Space Agency (ESA) and the European Cooperation for Space Standardisation (ECSS).
Alén Space presents the results of the Lume-1 project in Washington, D.C.
Alén Space has presented its services at the IAC 2019 congress as part of a delegation of seven companies from the Spain Pavilion organized by ICEX.
Success of the first demos of the Fire RS project with the Lume-1 nanosatellite
The first performance demonstrations of the Lume-1 nanosatellite, which have taken place in Salvaterra do Miño and Porto, have been a success.
Lume-1 is already in orbit to help against forest fires
The nanosatellite Lume-1 was successfully launched on December 27 from the Vostochny spaceport, in Eastern Russia at the scheduled time: 3:07 in the morning.
Presentation of the DustCube and FireRS projects at the IAC 2018 in Bremen
Alén Space attended the International Astronautical Congress, where it presented two projects developed by our team: DustCube and FireRS.
Open Laboratory Days to Spread Lume-1
We organized an open day where public, Degree and Master students were invited to visit the labs where the CubeSat was integrated by our engineers.
Lume-1 Faces Tests Prior to its Launch to Space
Lume-1 undergoes a test period to confirm that it will withstand the conditions it will experience on the day of its launch and that each component works correctly.
European Project FireRS Fights Forest Fires with a Nanosatellite
The European FireRS project will involve CubeSat Lume-1 to speed up the detection and management of forest fires in Galicia, northern Portugal and southern France
