  • Satcom 100 kW

    Space industry is based increasingly on full electric propulsion systems, and there is a European need to anticipate future missions. 2018 full electric propulsion Telecom satellites have a relatively low thrust and need several months (6 to 9) to rise from GTO to GEO, which is their main drawback. To reduce this delay between launch and...

  • Techno-Economic Impact on 5G Standards on...

    The project examines the impacts and opportunities of 5G for the satellite industry, as a technology building block to be integrated within 5G that can complement terrestrial technologies, as an enabler for innovative satellite-based solutions and as a lever to capture new markets.

  • 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...
