Technology demonstration, science and education
TRISAT-R is an institutional non-commercial nanosatellite mission primed by the University of Maribor under the contract with ESA and in cooperation with CERN and Slovenian company SkyLabs. The mission is aiming to provide valued ionizing radiation measurements from a Medium Earth orbit at altitude of approximately 6000 km. The ionizing radiation measurements in terms of the Total Ionization Dose and Single Event Effects are carried out with several different scientific instruments provided by CERN, ESA, and SkyLabs. Obtained data assure sufficient information to characterize the space environment and will further serve to improve parameters of environmental models for characterization of systems through the High Energy Hadron fluence and the spectrum hardness factor. Additional experiments on-board the TRISAT-R developed by ESA and SkyLabs are demonstrating Radiation Hardened by Design mitigation techniques for protection of high-performance and high-density electronic components targeting the upcoming era of Artificial Intelligence in space applications.
