Maprad is an Italian company actively working and providing radiation assurance for aerospace systems/sub-components according to ECSS/ESA standards for more than fifteen years.
Based on several years of research and development activities on space-based experiments in close collaboration with major European space industries, research institutes and space agencies, Maprad is pursuing its goals in terms of design, simulation, realization, qualification and commissioning of complex electronics and radiation detection systems.
In 2011/2012, Maprad won the Italy Innovation award with HIPRAD (High Precision Radiation Detector) and is currently collaborating within the concepts of Horizon 2020 SMARTFLEX project with international institutes.
Recently, thanks to supports from EU Commission, we have developed a compact system for thermo vacuum tests following major qualification standards (ECSS/ESA, MIL-STD-202, MIL-STD-810, RTCA/DO-160).
