Funding

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. 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.

  • ELECTRIC PUMP FED PROPELLANT SUPPLY FOR GEO SATELLITE BI-PROPELLANT CHEMICAL PROPULSION SYSTEMS (ARTES AT 4B.146)

    The objective of the activity is to design, manufacture and test an electric pump fed propellant supply system. The testing is expected to be performed under representative load conditions (e.g. with an existing bi-propellant thruster),.

    Targeted Improvements:

    • Reduction of feed system complexity by up to 80%
    • Reduction of the chemical propulsion system dry mass by up to 20 kg;
    • Improvedfeed pressure control i...

  • 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...

  • LOW PROFILE MULTIPLE BEAM KU-BAND DIRECT-TO-HOME (DTH) ANTENNA (ARTES AT 7B.046)

    The objective of the activity is to develop a switchable beam-pointing solution for low-profile Direct-To-Home (DTH) antennas, as an alternative to reflector based multiple feed DTH antennas. A prototype of a low profile Ku-band DTH antenna shall be designed, manufactured and tested in order to validate the proposed solution and demonstrate the concept.

    Targeted Improvements:Reduction of the mechanical form factor, complexity and instal...

  • 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.
