The European Space Agency (ESA) has initiated a new ARTES Strategic Programme Line dedicated to “Space Systems for Safety and Security (4S).
The programme is aimed at supporting the development of safe and secure satellite communication systems to improve digital European telecommunication infrastructure resilience. It also aims to contribute to the development of security and safety applications and their adoption by relevant user communities and public bodies.
In support of this, ESA Space Solutions is launching three new invitations to tender for user studies aimed at identifying and assessing the needs for new applications by engaging and cooperating with users and stakeholders from the essential services, transport, and public safety vertical sector.
Key focus areas are:
- Safeguarding Essential Services
- Safety of Future Transport
- Satellite applications for Public Safety
ESA Space solutions is offering 100% funding for feasibility studies of up to €250,000 to support these activities.
