  • HiPeR FLEXLINKS

    Objective of the contract is to industrialize the production and testing of more than 900 PG thermal straps (Flexlinks), using Airbus DS NL’s patented High Performance Radiator (HiPeR) technology.

  • Next Generation High Data Rate Trunking Systems

    A sustained growth of the satellite trunking markets is expected by 2025. LEO/MEO constellations are an effective and competitive solution for the provision of global trunking services, especially for planes and ships. The design and optimization of two systems makes it possible to identify new and more competitive technologies and to recommend...

  • M2MSatNet

    The objective of this activity is to investigate system solutions for next generation satellite-based low-cost M2M services able to support a very large number of nodes.

  • SatNEx IV

    Since 2009, ESA has led SatNEx activities. SatNEx IV is jointly sponsored by ESA Technical Directorate and Telecommunications ARTES Future Preparation. The annual budget (~300,000 €) provides funding for - 85% Technical activities : 4-6 Work Items per year - 5% Dissemination and Training (Lectures and Summer Schools) - 5% Visiting...

  • Capacity Enhancement and Interference Management...

    Tight frequency reuse, e.g., beyond a 4-color scheme to increase a multi-beam satellite system’s capacity could make signal detection ‘interference-limited’, where conventional interference suppressing techniques would be ineffective, requiring rather some sophisticated/novel techniques, e.g., those exploiting interfering signals, to revive the...

  • METAMORPHOSIS

    METAMORPHOSIS will define (a) cross-industry cooperation opportunities offered to the European and Canadian satellite industry when considering the convergence of SatCom with the 5G terrestrial business/solutions/technologies/operational concepts for the targeted verticals of transport, media and public safety, (b) integrated satellite terrestrial...
