CLOSE (Close To The Earth)

Thanks to a project with the Ministero dell’Università e della Ricerca, IMT has carried out a program to find a new Space Operational Zone, the VLEO orbits between 160 and 250 km of altitude.

There are three fundamental pillars for VLEO orbits:

  • a new propulsion system (RAM ‐ EP)
  • a new spacecraft capable of operating on these orbits
  • innovative applications that use the peculiarity of VLEO orbits
  • Fondo Europeo di Sviluppo Regionale Puglia / POR Puglia 2014 - 2020
  • Asse II - Azione II.2 Cluster
