To demonstrate the feasibility of beam hopping techniques by implementing the key technologies both at payload and ground segmentas well the required interactions, taking into account the results of system studies on the beam hopping in reduction of the on- boardDC power consumption as well as reduction in the mass by sharing one tube to serve several beams. Targeted Improvements: Beamhopping can match offered capacity with traffic demand. Compared to uniform power and bandwidth assignment per user beam, the beam hopping provides 50% reduction of DC power consumption. Using the beam hopping, one power amplifier can serve up to 8 beams providing significant saving in required mass particularly for multi-beam systems with user link in Ka band with a large number of beams.

The proposed 'Bit Torrent' network is an adaptation of the well known internet data distribution model for mission operations. It is characterised by a high density mesh network of mini, non-pointing antennas on ground that act as seeders (uplinkers/downlinkers) for spacecraft when they are receiving commands and the mission centres or mobile terminals on ground when they are receiving mission or housekeeping data. This concept is to be assessed for technical feasibility and capacity of data transfer possible.

The objective of this activity is to raise awareness in the space community about the cyber-security issue (both in the operations and in the supply chain) and to establish a general framework whereby ESA missions can define their own specific cyber-security requirements in order to guarantee reaching their mission-specific objectives and, consequently, protecting the image and the interests of the Agency in front of the external world. More in particular, the above mentioned framework for cyber-security of space missionsshall include as a minimum (i) guidelines to establish an Agency-wide policy, (ii) provide an inventory of applicable policies (if any) regarding cyberthreats, and (iii) a set of technical recommendations for the mission planning, design and procurement authorities for all categories of ESA space missions. The analysis should also result in indications about the projected impacts of the potential cyber-security threats and of the implementation of the proposed risk mitigation measures on the mission implementation schedule and resources (human and financial).

The objective of this ARTES 20 feasibility study is to assess the technical feasibility and commercial viability of space-based services to improve situational awareness in the Arctic. The arctic region is a frontier environment for human activities. Pressure isgrowing on the Arctic as an arena for multiple activities, in particular oil & gas, shipping, tourism, search & rescue, telemedicine, mineral extraction, ports & harbours as well as insurance. All these sectors are demanding strongly operational services providing better situational awareness in the Arctic.

The feasibility study is aimed at addressing the following needs expressed by the different user communities: 1. Reliable data provision regarding Arctic conditions and availability of infrastructure, including ice thickness and dynamics, Arctic sea routes, seasonal forecasts, etc. 2. Reliable communication and positioning mechanisms, in particular broadband communications and positioning of ships and helicopters. 3. Monitoring mechanisms assessing the environmental impactof an increase in Arctic operations.

Three space-based capabilities are relevant for integration into the potential services: EarthObservation, Satellite Navigation, and Satellite Communications. -Earth Observation data: for assessment of ice conditions and meteorology / sea-state. -GNSS signals: for tracking of ships and helicopters, and support to search and rescue operations. -Satellite communications, covering the lack of terrestrial infrastructure in many areas, and acting as an enabler of other services (datatransmission, search and rescue, etc). These space capabilities need to be complemented with appropriate cost-effective gap-fillers,for example airplanes/UAVs to cover gaps in Earth Observation data acquisition, radar and meteorological observations for surveillance, etc. The study content will include as tasks: stakeholder / user consolidation, refinement of user requirements, state-of-the-art analysis, service definition, system definition, proof of concept, viability analysis, and implementation roadmap

There are non hermetic chip and wire solutions with good reliability in moist environment. When the die is large, to manage the thermo-mechanical stresses between die and substrate, the die is mounted on a ceramic sub-mount. In this case the area increase sensibly leading to a situation where the intrinsic integration advantage of CSP or MCM-L is lost. Going toward the needed large area and high pin count dies flip-chip would be the best interconnection candidate. This absolutely requires an assessment of a solution usinga low TCE substrate to minimize the stress on the bumps, bumps made of high fatigue resistance alloy, and at the same time High Density Interconnect (HDI) with micro vias.

Objective: Development & qualification test of a small Peltier / TEC (thermo-electric cooler) suitable for cooling an LNA.
Description: With the trend towards higher frequencies and multi spot applications, telecom satellite payloads are demanding much more sensitive receive section to be compatible with high data rate, low power uplinks. The noise figure (G/T) of the receive section isa critical parameter, which is minimised by a) Minimising the length of waveguide between the antenna and the electronic Low Noise Amplifier (LNA). b) Minimising the temperature of the LNA. Today this is typically achieved either by baffles or dedicated heatpipe radiators. These can achieve low temperatures (-10 degrees C) but are heavy and complex, and use up valuable radiator surfacethat would otherwise be used for payload. Furthermore it is difficult to achieve both requirements a) and b) simultaneously, if the LNA is close to the feed then it is unlikely to be close to the radiator surface, requiring a heat pipe connection which increase heat leaks and increases the required radiator surface. An LNA is a small unit (less than 100x100x100mm), and the actual powerdissipation of an LNA is very small (less than 1W),ideally suited to a small Peltier device. A low temperature could be readilyachieved on the LNA, whilst the TEC permits to reject heat at a much higher temp (50 deg.C). The fact that only the LNA is cold allows to minimise heat leaks, and the rejected heat could then be transported to the radiator surfaces via a mini or micro loop heatpipe. This would permit to: 1) maximise rf sensitivity (achieve both a very short waveguide length and a cold LNA). 2) increaseantenna design flexibility (permit to install the LNA directly on the antenna receive horn, even when the horn is on an antenna mast). 3) reduce spacecraft mass (eliminate the complex structures used today). 4) increase available spacecraft radiator surfaceforother payload items. Current TECs for space applications are all manufactured outside Europe. This activity is to a) develop a European TEC, and b) assess its performance and operation in conjunction with an LNA.
