Project description

English EN

High performance Alexandrite Crystals for space missions

Space-based earth observation missions feature a series of artificial satellite mission and scientific instruments thrusted into the Earth’s orbit and designed for long-term global observations of the land surface, biosphere, atmosphere and oceans. They are essential in gaining key insight and data to understand our planet. The EU-funded GALACTIC project aims to create a complete supply chain solely by the European industry, intended to introduce high performance, high quality, high power, coated Alexandrite laser crystals. For this goal, two industrial partners and a research institute are teaming up to combine their complementing expertise and reach this ambitious goal.
