Amalia Team Italia


Team Italia aims at bringing together the Italian academic and industrial capabilities, that have already an impressive track record in space exploration and planetary missions, by exploiting the knowledge and facilities available at Thales Alenia Space, Compagnia Generale per lo Spazio, Technosystem Developments, Politecnico di Milano, Politecnico di Torino, Università di Roma La Sapienza and Università di Napoli Federico II, working together under the team leadership of Prof. Amalia Ercoli Finzi. The Team holds all skills and experience to meet the challenge put forward by Google and X PRIZE Foundation, while the real innovative challenge will be in mobilizing resources beyond the traditional space community and without public funding, with the comprehensiveness of the Team and the reputation of the individual members being the guarantee to potential sponsors.

Team Italia, while focusing on reliability and costs as main criteria for the mission design, promotes the AMALIA mission as a possible technologies demonstrator and as a bus for Lunar science. Soft and precision landing, smart structures, vision-based navigation are examples of advanced technologies to be tested on board AMALIA (Ascensio Machinae Ad Lunam Italica Arte, or The ascent of the machine to the Moon through Italian art) lander and rover.

Each member of the Team has a specific area of responsability, selected to exploit at the best its own professional and scientific skills.
