Politecnico di Milano awarded €2million EU funding for space research project
Politecnico di Milano (Polimi) has been awarded €2million EU funding for its Extrema space research project.
This exciting project – lead by Professor Topputo – involves the creation of self-driving interplanetary CubeSat nanosatellites that integrate elements of artificial intelligence and use the Earth’s gravitational pull to carry out research.
Professor Topputo has been developing this unique project for many years and has now assembled an international team to work with him. These nanosatellites will be able to carry out important scientific experiments, but being a fraction of the size and weight of previous satellites, the development costs and production time of the work they carry out will be considerably less. So far CubeSats have been adopted by NASA, ESA and JAXA, for scientific missions in the Earth’s orbit.
Polimi is a scientific-technological university, known for training engineers, architects and industrial designers. It has always focused on the quality and innovation of its teaching and research, developing a great relationship with the productive world by means of experimental research and technological transfer. By focussing its expertise in these fields it is able to offer its students highly regarded postgraduate programs taught in superb facilities
