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.
