  • PHOTONIC LANTERN RECEIVER (ARTES AT 5C.392, SCYLIGHT SL.016) (ON DELEGATION REQUEST)

    The objective of this activity is to develop, manufacture and test an Engineering Model of a Photonic Lantern Receiver, reducing the complexity of the receiver for optical communication terminals by eliminating the complex pointing and tracking system (tip-tilt mirror) that is otherwise needed to efficiently collect the light onto a fast photodetector.

    Targeted Improvements: Enab...

  • MINIATURISED KU- AND KA-BAND FILTERS FOR ON-BOARD PROCESSOR-BASED PAYLOADS (ARTES AT 5C.388)

    The objective of this activity is to design, manufacture and test miniaturised Ku- and Ka-band RF filters integrating a wide-band differential interface for on-board digital signal processors.

    Targeted Improvements: Enabling technology development of miniaturized Ku- and Ka-band filters with a wide-band differential interface not existing today in Europe. Footprint reduction by 30%of pre- and post- processor modules.

  • FEED SYSTEM ENABLING SINGLE REFLECTOR BEAM HOPPING ANTENNA FOR HIGH THROUGHPUT SATELLITES (ARTES AT 5B.168) (RE-ISSUE 1-8970)

    The objective is to design an antenna system capable of generating multiple hopped or switched antenna beams from a combined transmit/receive aperture, or from one aperture operating in transmit mode and one in receive mode, and to verify its critical functions.

    Targeted Improvements: Decrease the number of antenna apertures and the associated cost by a factor of greater than two...

  • HYBRID NAVIGATOR FOR TELECOMMUNICATION MISSIONS (ARTES AT 4C.051)

    On Delegation Request (formerly called Priority 2)

    The objective is to develop, manufacture and test a hybrid navigatorfor telecommunication missions, aiming at implementing a navigation unit composed of a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receiver and an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) in the same board.

    Targeted Improvements:Reduction of harness, mass (40%) and volume (50%) of the combined unit,Improvement of integratio...

  • LOW LOSS WAVEGUIDES COVERING HIGH FREQUENCY BANDS (ARTES AT 5C.351) RE-ISSUE ITT 1-9262

    Objective:The objective of this activity is to design, manufacture and test low loss waveguides in Ka, Q, V and W-frequency bands for use in future high throughput satellite systems (transmit and receive bands).

    Targeted Improvements: 20% reduction in insertion losses with respect to the state of the art.

    Description:Conventional rectangular waveguides have high insertion loss per metre. The most obvious consequences of the high...
