More Information

ArgoMoon is the only European nanosatellite, made in Italy, that will fly on board the new American Launcher, Space Launch System (SLS), during its first mission Exploration Mission 1 (EM-1) scheduled for 2019. The nanosatellite will be a witness to the NASA mission, providing photographic confirmation of the dispenser operations. ArgoMoons autonomous operations will be validated and then ready to face future exploration missions toward Mars and beyond. The young ArgoMoon System Engineer will introduce you to the challenge of designing a nanosatellite for deep space. It will be an interesting travel across innovation and technology to satisfy your curiosity in the aerospace field.


**Anna Frosi** is System Engineer at Argotec. 28 years old, she was born in Cremona, Italy. Her father is an engineer and her mother a Math and Physics teacher. The influence of these two, as well as a strong interest in Space, led Anna to pursue a career in Aerospace Engineering. After having obtained a degree in aerospace engineering at Politecnico di Milano, she began working at Argotec, an Italian aerospace company located in Turin where the average age of employees is about 29. She initially worked on payload development for the ISS, working on the ISSpresso project, which designed and developed the first machine for espresso in microgravity. During the same period Anna was the technical lead for the ARTE project, which developed a technology demonstrator for heat pipes with low toxicity working fluids for manned modules. She is currently the Systems engineer for the ArgoMoon project, which aims to create a 6U satellite scheduled to be launched onboard the SLS during the EM-1 mission.***

**Emilio Fazzoletto** is an Avionics Engineer at Argotec. He is 25 years old and he was born in Brindisi, Italy. Ever since childhood, he has shown a profound interest in science and technology. He obtained a bachelors and master’s degrees in Electronic Engineering at Politecnico di Torino. While studying, he also took part in Squadra Corse Polito, which is a student team aimed at developing electric racecars. During the last year of his studies, he attended KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, where he engaged in the analysis of partially reconfigurable, real-time and safety-critical embedded systems for his master thesis. He started working for Argotec in 2016, joining the avionics team in the development of the on-board computer of ArgoMoon, a small satellite that will be launched onboard the SLS during the NASA EM-1 mission. He also contributed to the embedded implementation of ArgoMoon image processing algorithms.***
