  • Micro-Cameras and Space Exploration to join Pioneer-IODA Project

    Space cameras to monitor the deployment of satellites and check the health of spacecraft will be developed under the Pioneer-IODA project by Micro-Cameras and Space Exploration based in Neuchâtel, Switzerland.

  • Global Space Economic Workshop «Space CyberSecurity for Smart Cities»

    28 - 29 May 2019, Ostuni Rosa Marina Resort, Ostuni (Italy)

    The Workshop will bring together leaders of major space and non-space European stakeholders, both from institutions and commercial sectors, in order to interactively discuss about potential cooperative space cyber-security initiatives for Smart Cities and Urban Mobility.

  • Reprogrammable satellite takes shape

    The payload and platform of the first European satellite that can be completely reprogrammed after launch have been successfully joined together.

  • Very High Throughput Satellite ready to pump heat

    Thales Alenia Space has delivered the first Spacebus Neo payload module structure, including the first ever Mechanically Pumped Loop (MPL) to be mounted on a telecommunication satellite designed for 15 years of in-orbit service. It will be flown on the SES-17 satellite that is due to start service operations in 2021.

  • 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.  

  • Maritime microsatellite ESAIL to test the waters as launch contract is signed

    The first commercial microsatellite developed under ESA’s SAT‐AIS programme for tracking ships, called ESAIL, has passed another milestone. On 9 May its Canadian operator exactEarth signed the launch service agreement with Arianespace.

  • Latest node in the European Data Relay System passes antenna tests

    The latest component in the European Data Relay System (EDRS) has passed another important milestone. Tests have successfully concluded on the antennas of the EDRS-C satellite.

  • Chameleon satellite enters antenna testing stage

    The first European satellite capable of being completely reprogrammed after launch, developed in an ESA Partnership Programme, has passed another important milestone. The communications module of Eutelsat Quantum has completed its baseline payload testing at Airbus in Toulouse. 

  • European quantum communications network takes shape

    Today’s interconnected world is ever more vulnerable to cyberattacks, emphasising the importance of secure encryption to protect Europe’s critical infrastructure and communications. An agreement forged today between the European Commission and the European Space Agency marks the first steps towards creating a highly secure, pan-European quantum communication infrastructure.
