Funding

Showing tenders for Future Preparations

Activities under ARTES Future Preparations are 100% funded by ESA, in recognition of the value of such research strategies in laying down the groundwork for securing the success of future activities.

Contracts are gained via Invitations To Tender (ITT), issued by TIA. Refer to the Working with TIA link to find out more on the ITT process.

An overview of the ARTES FP Workplan 2016 is published on EMITS under reference number AO8552.

As of 15 March 2016, esa-star – ESA’s System for Tendering And Registration replaced EMITS as the facility to register with ESA as an external Entity, i.e. potential Bidder/ Supplier. Existing user data from EMITS has been carried over to esa-star, which also provides access to your own entity-related data in order to verify, validate, modify or complete the registration-related data. Entities whose registration process in EMITS was in status “in preparation” on 8 March 2016 should re-enter their Entity data into the new esa-star registration facility.

The registration is mandatory prior to submitting proposals to ESA. Registered users (having obtained an ID and password) will have full access to the issued ITTs that are open to organisations of their country of registration. This will allow them on one side to download the whole ITT package (Cover Letter, Statement of Work, Draft Contract, Special Conditions of Tender, clarifications issued) and on the other side to provide their expression of interest (visible for ESA only or also for other EMITS/ esa-star users) of submitting an offer.

This page displays the ARTES Invitation To Tenders (ITTs) which are published on EMITS. Use the selection criteria on the left to refine your search.

Funding of the individual Prime or subcontractors, for ARTES Core Competitiveness and ARTES Applications activities, is subject to authorisation of the required ARTES budget by the related National Delegations. Therefore, bidding teams are requested to inform their National Delegation(s) of their intention to participate in funded activities already before submitting a proposal.

  • NEXT GENERATION HIGH DATA RATE TRUNKING SYSTEMS (ARTES FPE 1B.113)

    High data rate trunking (or point-point-connectivity) is a well-established application and valuable source of revenue for the satellite sector, providing connectivity between established communications infrastructure and remote locations. There has been some evolution in this market in recent years however, with a number of new initiatives providing such services in novel and ever more competitive ways, e.g:There has been a growth in the numb...

  • QUANTIFYING RECONFIGURATION AND FLEXIBILITY REQUIREMENTS FOR SATELLITE PAYLOADS OPERATING WITHIN THE 5G ENVIRONMENT (ARTES FPE 1B.119) - EXPRO PLUS

    The next generation of mobile network standards, 5G, will be of great significance to the overall telecommunications sector as ever-increasing focus is put on convergence and full re-configurability of services and networks.

    This development will encompass the implementation of several new paradigms, such as Software Defined Networks and Network Function Virtualisation (SDN/NFV), which would,for example, enable the possibility to:

  • TOPOLOGIES, ARCHITECTURES, BUSINESS MODELS, AND OPERATIONAL CONCEPTS FOR FUTURE VIRTUAL NETWORK OPERATIONS (ARTES FPE 1C.043)

    Market demands are evolving as more data-intensive services are set to be widely deployed, requiring new technologies, business models and levels of cooperation. The Satellite industry will need to meet these evolving requirements in order to maximize opportunities and become an active player across the range of vertical sectors considered in the deployment of 5G, such as e-health, energy, and transportation (incorporating all transport users...
