SMILE - SMall Innovative Launcher for Europe (SMILE)

Start date: 01 Jan 2016, End date: 31 Dec 2018,

Current launchers (ARIANE6 and VEGA C) will guarantee Europe’s independent access to space for the high-end satellite market. These launchers however are significantly less attractive for classes of smaller satellites.The SMILE initiative therefore addresses reliable, affordable, quick and frequent access to space for the emerging market of small satellites up to 50 kg, fulfilling the needs from t ...

 FINISHED 
ALTAIR’s strategic objective is to demonstrate the feasibility of a new cost effective and reliable space launch system for the access to Low-Earth Orbit (400-1000 km) of small satellites ranging from 50 to 150 kg. The ALTAIR launch system aims to be the expected answer to the needs of small satellites users, providing an affordable and adapted access to space service, without the constraints of c ...

Hybrid Propulsion Module for transfer to GEO orbit (HYPROGEO)

Start date: 01 Feb 2015, End date: 31 Jan 2018,

Independent access to space is a key component of the European Space Policy. The competition is increasing in this area both for the full launching systems and the key subsystems. Cost-effectiveness becomes the main driving factor.HYPROGEO ambition is to study a propulsion module based on Hybrid chemical propulsion. Hybrid propulsion is not a new technology but its application to a transfer module ...

SPAce exploration Research for Throttleable Advanced eNgine (SPARTAN)

Start date: 01 Mar 2011, End date: 31 Aug 2014,

The SPARTAN research aims at developing a throttable propulsion technology, which is mandatorily needed for any planetary soft and precision landing. It relies on the hybrid engine technology, exploiting its capability of being throttled and its proper performances.This research is complementary to ESA TRP and Piedmont Regional development programs. It implements and strengthens the technological ...
