  • Game changing device for spacecraft thermal control on the horizon

    The new Airbus Defence and Space (Airbus DS) Eurostar Neo satellite product line offers one of the largest communications payload capacity on the world market. The amount of thermal dissipation created by such large communication payloads requires innovative thermal control solutions, such as the East-West-Radiator system (EWRs). The Eurostar Neo EWRs will be based on a revolutionary EHD pump developed by APR Technologies (Sweden), under the technical lead of Airbus DS, in the frame of ESA’s Neosat Partnership Project.

  • ARTES 4.0 – a new proposal for a new marketplace

    The world space market is undergoing a deep transformation fuelled by the digitalisation of the economy and society. At the same time, many governments recognise the growing strategic importance of space. 

  • Space2connect 2020 Conference

    The European Space Agency is organising the first ever “Space2connect” conference. Space2Connect is postponed to Q2 2021 due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The new date will be communicated as soon as possible later this year.

  • Additive Manufacturing – making the impossible possible with 3D printing

    Additive Manufacturing (AM) can be considered one of the most disruptive emerging technologies, its radical approach being one of the driving forces of the ‘fourth industrial revolution’. An Innovative aerospace supplier, SWISSto12, has developed under ESA’s ARTES Advanced Technology programme a patented technology based on AM to produce key satellite components – opening a new world of solutions for radio frequency applications.

  • Improved broadband connectivity from MEO satellites is on the horizon

    The trend towards MEO (Medium Earth Orbit) satellites is gaining momentum with further growth in the segment very likely. This shift has created a need for enhanced modems to better match the characteristics of this orbit.  

  • ESA Final Presentation Days – a flying start to 2019

    With over 250 participants from 18 countries coming together at ESTEC in Netherlands, the annual event for Industry and ESA experts in Satellite Communications featured a 15% increase in attendance, making it the most successful edition to date. 

  • Launch-pad for Irish space-tech projects

    The partnership between Dublin City University and European Space Agency (ESA) is succeeding in providing the launch-pad for Irish companies to increase their engagement with emerging space-related technologies. 

  • Maker Space kicks off in Dublin

    The European Space Agency (ESA) and Dublin City University have joined forces to establish a ‘Maker Space’ environment, which will support the development of innovative Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies for satellite communications.

  • New element name: ARTES Core Competitiveness

    12 October 2016 – The European Space Agency’s Telecoms and Integrated Applications directorate (TIA) has announced a new element of the ARTES programme, called ARTES Core Competitiveness, which merges two formerly self-standing ARTES elements,  Competitiveness & Growth and Advanced Technology. 

  • Makerspace for the Internet of Things - powered by satellite

    28 June 2016 – ESA has launched a new Invitation to Tender with the goal of encouraging development of low data rate satellite communications concepts that would be suitable for diverse Machine-to-Machine and Internet of Things applications.
