The DArk Matter Particle Explorer (DAMPE) is a space-based particle detector launched on December 2015 from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in China, and since then smoothly operating in a Sun-synchronous orbit.
The main goals of the DAMPE mission include the study of the Cosmic-Ray Electron-positron (CRE) energy spectrum, the study of galactic cosmic-rays (CR), gamma-ray astronomy, and indirect dark matter search. The large acceptance and the detector figures make DAMPE able to measure the CREs and gamma-rays spectra up to few TeV, and cosmic-ray nuclei spectra up to hundreds of TeV, with unprecedented statistics and resolutions.
An overview of the DAMPE mission will be presented, along with main results and ongoing activities, focusing on CR spectral measurements.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
