artes SATCOM APPS

The ARTES Satcom Applications (SATCOM-APPS) programme has been created to

SUPPORT, DESIGN, DEVELOP AND DEMONSTRATE SATCOM APPLICATIONS PROJECTS, LEADING TO FULLY OPERATIONAL, SUSTAINABLE AND PROFITABLE SOLUTIONS.

The key characteristics of this programme are:

Sustainable products are characterised by stable commercial operations without further financial support from ESA following the contractual funding. It is expected that the project team is able to secure private and/or public funding in order to migrate the pilot service to an operational service. The commercial break-even point would typically be expected 2-3 years after the end of the pilot utilisation phase.

In order to achieve this, the following objectives have been defined for ARTES SATCOM-APPS activities:

 

ACTIVITIES

ARTES SATCOM-APPS activities may address new services, an upgrade or improvement of an existing service or a continuation of an activity funded by either ESA, European, national or the Bidder’s own programmes.

They may utilise any kind of satellite communication system in the broadest sense including one-way, broad- or multi-casting to fixed and mobile user terminals, two-way communication to/from fixed and mobile user terminals, data relay systems and other institutional systems. The system may be based on satellites in any orbit operating in any radio or optical frequency band.

 

THEMATIC DOMAINS

ARTES SATCOM-APPS activities are not limited to certain thematic domains.
The following domains and examples are intended for illustrative purposes only.

Any other promising domain can be covered by ARTES SATCOM-APPS activities.
