High Altitude Pseudo Satellites (HAPS) are stratospheric platforms that stay over a fixed point on Earth from weeks to months. Capitalising on these developments, the European Space Agency is reaching out to the Telecommunication, Earth...
Magnitude Space is building a nano‐satellite platform to provide low‐cost IoT data connectivity for sensors globally. In an open development environment, sensors will be integrated with small transmission hardware to send small packets of data to a low‐cost cube-sat constellation and from there via ground stations to data servers at the customers’ premise.
Designing, building and testing the most advanced and first commercially-viable picosatellite in conjunction with a PocketQube Orbital Deployer - the means with which to launch a large number of PocketQubes profitably.
In the frame of space debris mitigation, ESA has implemented new requirements and recommendations, which state that satellite propulsion systems shall be passivated at end of life. The main objective of the project is to develop a Gas Passivation Valve (GPV) to meet applicable passivation requirements related to the existing European Geostationary Telecoms platforms.
The SPECSI project examined the role of satellites in future communication networks and applications in 2020-25.
It studied emerging ICT trends to identify future opportunities for satcom and their associated system propositions. The outputs of the study are designed to help ESA understand how the European and Canadian satellite industry can be best supported through its ARTES programme.
Two approaches were considered in the past for the long term evolution of the safety critical satcom for aviation: Purpose built system with custom air interface (ANTARES) and the incremental evolution of Inmarsat’s system and services (Iris Precursor, Iris Service Evolution). This study helps to converge the two approaches and find synergies.
