CSES (China Seismo-Electromagnetic Satellite)-LIMADOU is a scientific program of Space missions that aims to deepen the comprehension of the time correlation between the main earthquake shocks and an increase in the electron flux in the inner Van Allen belt. For this purpose, the LIMADOU Collaboration is realizing the first space tracker consisting of monolithic silicon pixel sensors based on the ALPIDE (ALice PIxel DEtector) technology, developed for the ALICE (A Large Ion Collider Experiment) ITS upgrade at CERN. In this contribution, the assembly procedures together with the qualification tests, which allow to select the best modules for the tracker construction, will be presented. Furthermore, the sensor performance as a function of temperature will be discussed.
