LMPC [Aerospace Corp.]
Aerocube 9 (AC9) or LMPC (Linear Mode Photon-counting CubeSat), is a cubesat mission by the Aerospace Corporation of El Segundo to demonstrate a cryocooler and a photon counting sensor array.
The LMPC mission consists of a 3U Cubesat with the mission to demonstrate a NASA funded 2×8 pixel array of HgCdTe APDs with photon sensitivities at 1, 1.5, and 2 microns, to measure detector dark current and radiation dosage throughout the mission, to demonstrate a 77 K cryocooler in a 3U CubeSat, to demonstrate passive radiometric measurements of the earth and to receive uplinked laser lines to measure species absorption.
