AirPhoton is now partnering with Loft Orbital. Our role is to provide scientific payloads for space missions from cubesats up to full-sized instrument missions which will be launched and managed by Loft. Our chief technical officer Dr. Vanderlei Martins has designed several types of instrument payloads for space borne missions. Dr. Martins' Laboratory for Aerosols Clouds and Optics at UMBC has built the HARP cubesat for NASA. Please see the HARP page for a description of its scientific mission and innovative technical features. It's design is being modified to be used as a full-sized payload for NASA's PACE mission. This same science and engineering expertise is an integral part of AirPhoton and we will be coordinating with Loft Orbital to provide state of the art satellite payloads.
The Physics Department at UMBC and AirPhoton are hosting the third annual SPARTAN meeting April 19 - 20, 2018 in room 401 of the Physics Building on the UMBC campus. April 19 is a day of talks about the science of SPARTAN. April 20 is a closed door meeting at BWTech South where SPARTAN and AirPhoton will be discussing technical issues of the equipment used for data collection.
