The objectives are:
The study will allow identifying, architecture and critical technologies required to fulfil the future demand in High Accuracy antenna system pointing to cope within highly demanding multimedia mission.
In order to conduct this study, it is necessary to perform the following set of activities:
The project shall be carried out with the following milestones:
Final review with ESA on the 15th of November 2012. CCN for extra activities ending July 2014.
In order to conduct this study, it is necessary to perform the following set of activities :
Through the evaluation of the proposed APS architecture, the HA-APS study has shown that improved pointing performances can be reached thanks to the implementation of combinations of elementary HW and/or SW evolutions.
According to the identified evolutions and future mission needs, a technology roadmap has been set-up to propose ways forward.
