Headline Details: ALPHA is a 1U CubeSat mission, hosting different technologies designed and built to endure the highly radiative MEO Space environment. In fact, the CubeSat is named after the highly ionizing form of particle radiation that is also present in the Van Allen belts, where the target orbit is located. It is intended to be released as secondary payloads after the main payload, the LARES-II scientific satellite, on a slightly different orbit (apogee: ~5892 km, circular, inclination: 70° ± 1°) to avoid collision risks. Proposing UHF downlink with 9k6 FSK and USB SSTV plus LoRa at 1168bps. Planning a launch from Kourou in Q3 2020 into a 5892 Km orbit at 70 degrees.
