Description HERMES-TP/SP is a constellation of six 3U nano-satellites hosting simple but innovative X-ray detectors for the monitoring of Cosmic High Energy transients such as Gamma Ray Bursts and the electromagnetic counterparts of Gravitational Wave Events, and for the determination of their position. The projects are funded by the Italian Space Agency and by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under Grant Agreement No. 821896. HERMES-TP/SP is an in orbit demonstration, that should be tested in orbit by the beginning of 2022. It is intrinsically a modular experiment that can be naturally expanded to provide a global, sensitive all sky monitor for high energy transients. On behalf of the HERMES-TP and HERMES-SP collaborations I will present the main scientific goals of HERMES-TP/SP, as well as a progress report on the payload, service module and ground segment developments.
