"the Pilot perfectly matches the idea with which a team of researchers from the INFN Section in Rome, led by Valerio Bocci, developed ArduSiPM, the first radiation detector based on silicon photomultipliers (SiPMs) fully integrated on a chip"

The collaboration between INFN (National Institute of Nuclear Physics) and Cshark continues with important developments; in fact, INFN technology will be on board the new 100 Pilots that Cshark will take into orbit in the next 2 years.

The ArduSiPM is a particle detector that Cshark is miniaturizing and improving (NanoSiPM) together with INFN to create the first intelligent watchdog in aerospace with an integrated system for characterizing particle fluxes on board an OBC (On Board Computer). In doing so, standard pico-sat missions will also boast the feature of scientific research through the use of this technology.

First unveiled by CEO Alessandro Fanni at the DigithON digital marathon, this invention represents a welcome breakthrough in technology and the possibility of bringing many more to fruition.
