Balloon-borne 500 mm UV-NIR Telescope​

Officina Stellare confirms its opto-mechanical capabilities with a complex high engineering Project, destined to innovate the world of research in the high atmosphere.

The telescope installed on board of SuperBIT – Super-pressure Balloon-borne Imaging Telescope, is designed for observation in the visible and ultraviolet spectral ranges and it is the result of the collaboration between Officina Stellare and the Universities of Princeton and Toronto.

The mission consisted in validating the performance of a sophisticated “flying” platform, developed by the #SuperBIT team, capable of revolutionizing future astronomical research activities from the privileged high atmosphere environment.

Research, innovation, cutting-edge technology and engineering skillsets have this project a real success.
