The Future of Satellite Communications and Space Applications
The Directorate of Telecommunications and Integrated Applications (TIA) is the most business-oriented part of ESA. Its role is to shape and support innovation, not only in satellite communications but also in down-to-earth business applications of space systems and technologies such as satellite navigation, Earth observation or human space flight. This is achieved through ESA’s programme of Advanced Research in Telecommunications Systems (ARTES).
The TIA Advanced Research in Telecommunications Systems (ARTES ) 4.0 programme enables European and Canadian industry to explore, through research and development (R&D) activities, innovative concepts to produce leading-edge satcom products and services. ARTES 4.0 offers varying degrees of support to projects with different levels of operational and commercial maturity. The scope and plans for its pursuit are incorporated into the Telecommunications Long-Term Plan (TLTP), the blueprint for ESA's actions over a five-year time frame.
Businesses located within ESA member states involved in the satcom industry - whether small or large, new or experienced - can submit proposals via the various elements of the ARTES programme. Every ARTES 4.0 programme line includes a funding framework and follows certain criteria that must be met by satcom companies wishing to participate.
