DAMPE has been launched
DAMPE (DArk Matter Particle Explore) the powerful space telescope for high energy gamma-ray, electron and cosmic rays detection.
DAMPE (DArk Matter Particle Explore) is one of the five satellite missions in the framework of the Strategic Pioneer Research Program in Space Science of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) realized in collaboration with INFN and University of Geneva, it has been launched today on board a Chinese orbital carrier rocket CZ-2D into a sun-synchronous orbit at the altitude of 500 km.
DAMPE is a powerful space telescope for high energy gamma-ray, electron and cosmic rays detection , will extend the data already acquired by AMS and PAMELA experiments. The detector will be powered on three days after the launch and will start collecting data after a couple of weeks.
SITAEL provided 60 High voltage power supply (S9100) for DAMPE detectors consolidating the strong history of collaboration with the Chinese space research centers.
