DAMPE (DArk Matter Particle Explorer) is a satellite-based detector designed for one of the main Space missions promoted by the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in the framework of its Strategic Pioneer Research Program in Space Science. The experiment activities are carried out by a large collaboration involving many Universities and Institutes from China, Italy and Switzerland. The satellite was launched on December 17th, 2015 from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in China, and it is stably collecting data since then. The DAMPE mission is dedicated to the measurement of electron and photon spectra up to the energy of about 10 TeV, aiming to eventually find clues about the existence of Dark Matter. A further main scientific goal of the experiment is the measurement of Cosmic Ray (CR) energy spectra up to hundreds of TeV, together with the exploration of the high-energy γ-ray Sky. In this work we present the preliminary results about the energy spectrum measurement of CR helium nuclei up to ∼ 7 TeV/n.
