Detection of spectral UV from meteors by a nanosatellite

Abstract : Here, we present a cubesat space mission concept devoted to the UV detection of meteors from space. Space observations have the advantages of being able to continuously observe meteors independently of weather conditions on large portions of the atmosphere and, specifically, to perform ultra-violet light measurement as it is above the ozone layer. The UV spectrum is interesting for the detection of chemicals such as iron, carbon and hydroxide that can yield a signature of elements present during the solar system's formation.
