Our comprehension of the dawn of universe grew incredibly during last years, pointing to the existence of the cosmic inflation. The primordial B-mode polarization of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) represents a unique probe to confirm this hypothesis. The detection of such small perturbations of the CMB is a challenge that will be faced in the near future by a new dedicated satellite mission. MoBiKID is a new project, funded by INFN, to develop an array of Kinetic Inductance Detectors able to match the requirements of a next-generation experiment. The detectors will feature a Noise Equivalent Power better than 5 aW/Hz^0.5 and will be designed to minimize the background induced by cosmic rays, which could be the main limit to the sensitivity. I will present the current status of detectors development and the next planned steps to reach the goal of this project.
