 Observations of bright meteors from orbital platforms
PROJECT NAME

OBSERVATIONS OF BRIGHT METEORS FROM ORBITAL PLATFORMS

SHORT DESCRIPTION

This project is carried out in collaboration with INFN researchers of the Torino University, who are pursuing the goal of developing orbital platforms for the detection of ultra-energetic cosmic rays.

ROLE

the collaboration with INAF-OATO is based on the fact that these observations are also useful to detect events of bright meteors. The OATO team has developed models of meteor signals for a large variety of observing circumstances and different orbiting platforms, including the Mini-Euso detector, that is expected to be put in operation aboard the International Space Station within the end of 2019.
