LEN, since its foundation in 1992, deals with electronics for scientific instrumentation.
Since the 1990s it has collaborated with a Italian company, providing scientific-technical support for equipment that goes to MOC radiation measurement systems such as radiometric portals.
At the end of the 90s, it created the front end for the INFN Borexino experiment, still active at the Gran Sasso. In the same years, it created multi-point telemetry for a national television network to control the backbone throughout the national territory.
In 2003 the collaboration with IASF BO began in the context of the BarSport experiment. Thus was born the bidirectional telemetry based on Iridium called MSITel, an acronym of Multi Source Iridium Telemetry.
We arrived in 2008, and in collaboration with ASI and other institutes, Stradium was born.
Stradium was an array of MSITel able to expand the band up to 32kbps.
In the following years, LEN continued to evolve MSITel.
MSITel was provided by several space agencies including Esrange and the Indian space agency.
In 2009, despite being piggyback, MSITel provided resources to the Sora 9 experiment.
In 2010 MSITel was validated as ASI telemetry for a flight from Svalbard, also to support a scientific experiment.
In the following years, the collaboration with the CNR-ISAC for the I-Amica project begins and provides an equipped Shelter, now active at the CNR-IAMC in Torretta Granitola, another at the CNR in Bologna and at San Pietro Capofiume.
In this context, it also designs and manufactures an innovative sampling system for atmospheric gas.
In 2015, the collaboration with ASI returns for an upgrade of Stradium to obtain more bandwidth, surpassing the use of the 16 satellite transceivers provided. This collaboration materialized in 2016.
From 2018 to 2020 LEN carried out several projects in collaboration with the CNR-IIA, furthermore for the HEMERA project it carried out a redesign of the old telemetry by updating the components and with clearly superior performance (MSITel-II).
In 2019, equipment for measurements of black carbon in the air was created (DBAP5).
