  • ARTES SCYLIGHT ROLLING WORK PLAN

    This first ScyLight Workplan has been established based on an ESA internal ARTES ScyLight Call for Ideas. It will be amended reflecting the findings from Industry Workshops or the consolidation process with stakeholders, like National Delegations, Operators, Service Providers, Satellite Manufacturers, Industry and experts which will take place in the next months. The activities have beenselected in line with the programme objectives for Line 1...

  • SCYLIGHT - OPEN CALL FOR PROPOSALS

    The objective of ARTES ScyLight is to address the development and use of innovative optical technologies for satellite communication as well as new market opportunities for optical communication technologies, and support industry to develop or seize related market opportunities. ScyLight will therefore cover the development and evolution of optical communication technologies and suitable flight opportunities for their in-orbit verification. Sc...
