16 November 2015 – Using GNSS for positioning and station keeping is an important breakthrough in geostationary satellite technology. ESA has been supporting this development by means of a number of activities undertaken within the framework of the ARTES programme.
11 November 2015 – With the support the ARTES programme, Skyware developed a versatile Ka-band VSAT transceiver that is now in production and enjoying strong sales, thanks to the growing number of high-throughput Ka-band satellites coming into service.
6 November 2015 – The first three products supported by the Atlas extension to the ARTES 3-4 programme have entered into service on Eutelsat's 8 West B satellite, which was launched 20 August. The launch of these first units represents a major milestone for Atlas, which was initiated in 2013 to support first flight opportunities for new space technologies.
2 November 2015 – The payload of Eutelsat 8 West B satellite, launched on 20 August, included advanced interference-mitigation capabilities developed by Thales Alenia Space with the support of ESA through the ARTES programme.
27 October 2015 – At sea, space technology is used to help save lives every day: managing traffic between ships, picking up migrants and refugees in distress or spotting oil spills. Throught the ARTES programme, ESA is at the forefront developing new technologies and satellites to keep us safe at sea.
15 October 2015 – The Megaconstellations Industry Information Day held on 6 October at ESTEC enabled representatives from European and Canadian space industry to learn more about ESA's new Megaconstellation Workplan, which is designed to support the European and Canadian space industry's competitiveness in the various megaconstellation initiatives that have been announced around the world.
13-14 January 2016, ESTEC (Noordwijk, The Netherlands)
The Final Presentation Days represent a unique opportunity to gain a complete overview of recently completed ARTES Future Preparations activities, and to discuss them with colleagues from ESA and other representatives of the satellite telecommunications sector. Registration is now open.
