Showing tenders for Advanced Technology

Contracts are gained via Invitation To Tender (ITT), issued by TIA. Refer to the link "Business with ARTES" to find out more about the ITT process. Click on the links below to find out which ITTs are currently open within ARTES AT. Intended ITTs are planned to be issued in the near future. ITTs classified as Priority 2 activities will only be initiated on the explicit request of at least one delegation.

If you would like to respond to a currently open ITT you will first have to register on esa-star as a potential bidder. Please register your interest in a currently open or planned ITT using the "Advanced Technology Expression of Interest" form available for download here.

A Summary Table for all planned ARTES AT workplan activities is available here for download to registered users residing within participating Member States.

An overview of the latest ARTES AT Workplans is available here.

This page displays the ARTES Invitation To Tenders (ITTs) which are published on EMITS. Please click on the + symbol below to expand the Filter By ARTES Elements to narrow 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.

  • IN-ORBIT TUNEABLE INTERMEDIATE FREQUENCY FILTERS (ARTES AT 5C.389)

    The objective of the activity is to design, manufacture and test a compact in-orbit tuneable intermediate frequency (IF)filter withthe ability to tune the bandwidth of flexible frequency converters over a frequency range from 36 MHz to 500 MHz.

    Targeted Improvements:

    • Enabling in-orbit tuneable bandwidth flexibility for frequency converters;
    • Reduction of the complexity and mass of frequency converters for fully flexi...

  • WIDEBAND RF OVER IP DEMONSTRATOR (ARTES AT 6B.055)

    Objective: The objective of the activity is to develop and test a breadboard of a RF over IP acquisition/generation demonstrator for instantaneous signal bandwidthup to 5GHz, jointly with an adaptive compression technique with the scope to minimise the IP data rate required to transmit a given RF bandwidth.

    Targeted Improvements:Increase of instantaneous bandwidth from 220MHz to 5GHz of RF over IP acquisition/generation units.

    De...

  • WIDEBAND SOFTWARE DEFINED HUB (ARTES AT 6B.056)

    The objective of this activity is to develop and test a prototype of a fully software-implemented broadband hub up to 5GHz instantaneous bandwidth.

    Targeted Improvements: Enabling a fully software-implemented hub up to 5GHz instantaneous bandwidth, which does not exist today.

    Description: The use of RF over IP has increased during the latest ye...

  • FAST COMPOSITE REFLECTOR MANUFACTURING (ARTES AT 5B.192)

    Antenna reflectors are key products for telecommunication payloads. The manufacturing time and complexity of reflectors are known to be driven by the need of a temperature-stable or temperature-compensated mould. The conventional approach for reflector manufacturing is to cure the composite sandwich in an autoclave in order to meet the stringent surface accuracy requirements dictated by the frequency of operation. Out-of-auto clave composite m...

  • MASSIVE-USER COMMUNICATION DEMONSTRATOR (ARTES AT 3C.016) (RE-ISSUE AO 1-9280)

    The objective of the activity is to design, develop and test a proof of concept for a M2M broadcast system based on commercial-of-the-shelf low-power terrestrial machine-to-machine communication standards. The activity shall use model-based system engineering methodology.The activity shall deliver an end-to-end hardware test bed to validate the broadcast system. This shall includetraffic generation tools, uplink gateway, satellite system emula...
