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), with a high quality method we call Alén Space Matrix.
