DAMPE (DArk Matter Particle Explorer) is a space mission project promoted by the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), in collaboration with Universities and Institutes from China, Italy and Switzerland. The detector is collecting data in a stable sun-synchronous orbit lasting 95 minutes at an altitude of about 500 km. It has been launched in December 17th, 2015, from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch...

The DAMPE (DArk Matter Particle Explorer) experiment, in orbit since December 17th 2015, is a space mission whose main purpose is the detection of cosmic electrons and photons up to energies of 10 TeV, in order to identify possible evidence of Dark Matter in their spectra. Furthermore it aims to measure the energy fluxes and the elemental composition of the galactic cosmic rays nuclei up to at...

The High Energy cosmic Radiation Detection (HERD) facility will be one of the future space astronomy payloads onboard the upcoming Chinese space station. The ambitious aim of HERD is the direct detection of cosmic rays towards the "knee" region (~ 1 PeV), with a detector able to measure electrons, photons and nuclei with an excellent energy resolution (1 % for electromagnetic components at 200...

The CSES (China Seismo-Electromagnetic Satellite) mission, will investigate the dynamics of the ionosphere by monitoring electric and magnetic fields, plasma disturbances and trapped particle fluctuations, searching for a correlation with the geophysical activity. The High-Energy Particle Detector (HEPD), developed by the Italian National Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN) in...
178. CaloCube and “Tracker In Calorimeter” projects for the direct measurement of high energy charged astro-particles and gamma rays.

Measurements of high energy cosmic rays in the “knee” region (about 10^15 eV) are currently available only with ground detectors: new observations of cosmic particles up to this energies with direct measurements are one of the main goals of the next generation space experiments. To achieve those aim, a large acceptance, good energy resolution and particle identification are needed. CaloCube is...
