European New Space propulsion system supported by ESA's Core Competitiveness programme gains valuable market successes

With support of ESA's Advanced Research in Telecommunications Systems (ARTES) Core Competitiveness programme funding, Dawn Aerospace and Com&Sens have partnered to develop an innovative smart Composite Overwrapped Pressure Vessel (COPV) propellant tank for Dawn’s propulsion system. Using embedded sensors, the tanks gain additional smart features on top of the traditional high pressure propellant storage.

Integrations made through European Space Agency's Pacis 3 project moves Spainsat NG closer to launch pad

The European Space Agency's (ESA) Pacis 3 project took another step towards the launch pad, with the Direct Radiating Array Transmit (DRA TX) antenna and associated power supply unit and antenna control electronics recently delivered to Airbus Toulouse. These components were integrated on to the Spainsat NG1 satellite, a crucial element of the Spainsat second-generation programme for Spanish satellite operator Hisdesat.

European Space Agency to support technological development for next-generation constellation

The European Space Agency (ESA) is continuing its partnership with Eutelsat Group (recently merged with LEO operator OneWeb) through the Sunrise Partnership Project. The project, now entering its third phase, will provide technological advancement for products and services, enhancing European and Canadian competitiveness and increase capacity for the growing existing and future market demands.

European Space Agency reinforces role of Non-Terrestrial Networks as part of global 6G vision

The European Space Agency’s (ESA) Space for 5G/6G Programme Office co-organised the first ETSI Conference, which focused on how Non-Terrestrial Networks (NTNs) will natively integrate with Terrestrial Networks (TN) in 6G and play a key role in the adoption and utilisation of 6G on a global scale, has culminated in a success with dialogues underway to ensure open and robust and  standards for globally leading 5G and soon 6G connectivity ecosystem. The Conference was co-organised by ESA, the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) , the 6G Smart Networks and Services Industry Association (6G-IA) and the Smart Networks and Services Joint Undertaking (SNS JU).

European Space Agency and Hisdesat partnership sees Pacis 3 antenna move closer to orbit

The Pacis 3 project – which is a partnership between the European Space Agency (ESA) and satellite operator Hisdesat – has taken a significant step forward in its progress to launch a SpainSat NG satellite. As part of the thermal hardware for the Pacis 3 active antennas, four Loop Heat Pipe Sub-Assemblies (LSA) have been delivered and integrated to the first satellite in Toulouse, France.
