The main objective of the HERMES-Technologic and Scientific Pathfinder (HERMES-TP/SP) mission is to develop a cheap and scalable network of 3U nanosatellites to promptly detect, localize and probe high-energy astronomical transients such as Gamma-Ray Bursts and electromagnetic counterparts to gravitational waves events.
HERMES will be able to detect GRBs prompt emission over a broad energy...
Space experiment BION-M2 focuses on research of effects of ionizing radiation to biological samples such as geckos and mice. The return module of BION-M2 carries the life support systems for all living organisms. The launch of the satellite is planned on the year of 2023, the average altitude will be 800 km.
The newly developed hybrid silicon/scintillator detector will support this experiment...
We were developing a cheap concept of a fast commercial silicon pixel detectors combined with a state of the art readout electronics based on ultrafast sampling and waveform digitizers of the signal giving simultaneously its time and amplitude.
This concept was used originally in High Energy Physiscs and we transpose it
with two applications from cosmic ray physics and particle therapy...
The recent association of gamma-ray bursts with neutron star mergers highlighted the need for sensitive gamma-ray detectors with high localization accuracy. Identification of the host galaxy of the gravitational wave event GW170817 and the gamma-ray burst GRB170817A was only achieved 11 hours after initial detection, due to difficulties in surveying the uncertainty region of the gravitational...
