  • INTERFERENCE RESILIENT VSAT SYSTEM FOR BROADBAND SERVICES (ARTES AT 7A.054)

    Objective: The objective of the activity is to develop a prototype of a DVB-S2/RCS Next Generation terminal composed of an antenna and a digital modem implementing interference mitigation techniques. The digital modem shall be able to provide channel state information to allow the network control centre to manage possible interference caused by Fixed Services (FS) terminals onto Fixed Frequency System (FSS) termina...

  • SOLID REFLECTOR WITH METAL MESH AS THE REFLECTIVE SURFACE (ARTES AT 5B.183)

    The objective of the activity is to design, manufacture and test a side-deployable reflector with metal mesh as the reflective surface and a solid backing structure.

    Targeted Improvements:Lightweight antenna reflectors with a significant mass reduction of 25% when compared to state-of-the-art reflectors, a shaping capability, very low reflective loss and low acoustic load sensitivity.

    Description:Current state-of-art side-deploya...

  • WIDEBAND ACOUSTIC FILTERS FOR PRE-AND POSTPROCESSORS (ARTES AT 5C.354)

    On Delegation Request (formerly called Priority 2)

    Objective: The objective of the activity is to design, manufacture and test acoustic filters with wide bandwidths in the range of 500 MHz for use in very high throughput satellite applications.

    Targeted Improvements:Enabling technology development to achieve a reduction of the footprint and mass of L- and S-band filters by at least 50%.

    Description: RF surface acoustic wav...

  • HIGH VOLTAGE ELECTRIC PROPULSION THRUSTER SIMULATOR (ARTES AT 4F.121) (RE-ISSUE 1-9278)

    The objective is to define and develop an electrical thruster simulator providing a new category of test equipment required to standardize acceptance and Power Processing Unit (PPU)-thruster coupling tests.

    Targeted Improvements:- Enabling verifications that would not be possible with the flight hardware.- Mitigation of damage risks on flight hardware.- Reduce testing time by 30%.- Standardisation of procedures and reports.- Increases a...
