ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIES FOR FUTURE EUROPEAN SATELLITE APPLICATIONS (TESLA)
2019 - 2023
Space sector is key and strategical asset for Europe to face global challenges, which must continue to be developed to have a prominent role in the world, contributing to the independence security and prosperity of Europe. Since satellite payload RF components and systems are essential for delivering mission objectives and supporting ground equipment, new technologies and techniques are required to respond to emerging satellite applications and technology challenges. To this end, TESLA ETN (European Training Network) will create a multidisciplinary research environment to develop the Advanced Technologies for future European Satellite Applications. It will set up collaborations with senior staff in academic and industrial sectors to conduct top research into new and enabling technologies for satellite flexible payloads, big constellation systems, satellite high-speed communications and remote sensing, as well as large satellite platforms. TESLA will also implement a unique research program, with the objective to push the next generation of creative, entrepreneurial and innovative satellite communication developers, to enhance the European space economy and business through outreach activities for a wider economic and social impact.
