Emxys develops UPV politech.1 nanosatellite

Politech.1 will be the first mission for Emxys NAOSat cubesat platform.

Emxys NAOSat platform has been selected by the Universidad Politécnica de Valencia for its first technology demonstration Space mission. The mission will inject in Low Earth Orbit three experimental payloads from different UPV research teams – a telescope camera for Earth imaging, a high-data rate microwave transmitter, and a demonstrator of optical fiber temperature sensors. Besides, Politech.1 will also include an experiment from NASA to study the nature of the upper atmosphere. The private company Aurorasat, developing the Ground Control Station, and the European Space Agency (ESA) will also participate actively in the project.

The Universidad Politécnica de Valencia is a Spanish university located in Valencia, with a focus on science and technology. It was founded in 1968 as the Higher Polytechnic School of Valencia and became a university in 1971, but some of its schools are more than 100 years old.
