The DArk Matter Particle Explorer (DAMPE) is a satellite-borne experiment successfully launched in December 2015. The main scientific goal of the mission is to perform high preci- sion measurements of the High Energy Cosmic Ray (HECR) sky and, after more than three years of data taking, DAMPE has collected over 5.6 billion events.
In recent years the anisotropy of CRs results have been presented by several collaborations with the use of ground-based and space-based experiments from energies above tens of GeV up to EeV. In this work we are present a preliminary study of the sensitivity of the DAMPE experiment to the anisotropy signal. We discuss the method used for anisotropy searches and present the preliminary results based on one year of the DAMPE data for all particle types at calorimeter energies from 100 to 500 GeV. The work includes also studies on the different angular scales.
