Plasma Environment Platform for Satellite tests in Orléans (PEPSO)

PEPSO consists mainly of a plasma chamber installed at LPC2E since 2020. This installation aims at simulating a space environment on the ground to be able to test instruments, nanosatellite platforms, and the interactions between the two. It allows creating a plasma close to ionospheric conditions, which corresponds to the environments encountered by satellites in low orbits.

Details are provided here.

PEPSO also supports instrumental theses, research internships and teaching.
