Continuous technology improvement has allowed the development of increasingly smaller and cheaper satellites. Different private companies figured out this fact and started to think about the possibilities of having their satellite constellation. One of the goals of these constellations is to provide high-quality internet services via satellite to any point of the globe.
Alter Technology has participated in these new space projects in different ways. One of our collaborations was developing a complex setup capable of simultaneously measuring 20 solar sensors under homogeneous incident light during thermal cycles testing. These solar sensors were composed of eight photodiodes.
