The M&C interfaces specified as part of the harmonisation project have been designed taking into account the pre-launch scenarios involving the operations of ground support equipment. Its applicability to the mission operations of ground station equipment will be explored as part of this activity, with the objective to consolidate the outputs of the Harmonisation project and to promote the adoption of common solutions across mission phases. It is the intention to focus the study on the definition of the M&C interfaces for ground station equipment, including the generic elements as defined in the EGS-CC initiative. Procurement Policy: C(1) = Activity restricted to non-prime contractors (incl. SMEs).

Gas chromatographs in conjunction with a spectral mass analyser for the identification of organic and inorganic compounds have beenflown or are flying already on several space missions, e.g. Huygens and Rosetta, and are in the process of being built and qualified, as for the Mars Science Lab (NASA) and for ExoMars (ExoMars). These instruments are already miniaturised and optimised in terms of mass and power consumption to a high extent. MEMS based technology however offers a potential to further reduce resource consumption and cost. This would enable for instance environmental monitoring using a swarm type of mission. As for applications in human spaceflight, the potential of MEMS based devices is the increased mobility. Procurement Policy: C(1) = Activity restrictedto non-prime contractors (incl. SMEs).

Develop a database and initial population of space system simulation models. Description: Based on the portability standard and a reference architecture the structure of a library shall be defined and implemented to host reference simulation models for the use and exchange between all stakeholders in the space domain. The structure of the database shall be based on the reference architecture developed under other ESA activites. A concept needs to be defined and implemented which allows the central management and maintenance of the library, ensuring proper access control and compliance with the corresponding standards (such as the simulation model portability standard). An initial population of this library shall be developed, and support for "open" models as well as models with IPR issues has to be demonstrated.

A key role of ESA in telecommunications is to promote a significant level of R&D activities to ensure the readiness and competitiveness of European industry in the short and long term. ARTES Element 5 sub-element 5.1, short ARTES 5.1, is the Agency's main programme for preparatory development of satellite communications, and it covers the long-term R&D activities. ARTES 5.1 activities contain significant amount of industrial research and technical risk and are therefore fully funded. ARTES 5 is concerned with the early stages of development of systems and exploitation of new and promising technologies for satellite communications.

In several cases the ARTES 5 activities are a continuation of a TRP activity. Within the TRP the components are developed and basic feasibility is demonstrated, while within ARTES 5 the equipment are developed to breadboard or engineering model level. The further development to a space qualified or industrialised product is supported within the co-funded ARTES 3-4 element. Through ARTES 5, ESA supports the exploitation of new technologies into equipment such that in the long-term the industry will be able to offer state-of-the-art equipment and systems at competitive prices. It encompasses activities related to the development of subsystems and equipment for satellitecommunications.

The Workplan 2013 addresses specifically the Technology and Equipment activities in support of the activity lines defined in the Telecommunications Long Term Plan. The Workplan 2013 has been coordinated with other ESA technology programmes according to the end-to-end process described in ESA/IPC(2008)61, rev.1. The activities are organised per application area with System, Space Segment (Platform and Payload) and Ground Segment.

This activity is to demonstrate reliable bidirectional optical transmission (up to 100Gbps) through the atmosphere in a scenario representative (in terms of link attenuation and optical turbulence) of an optical feeder link between a GEO telecom satellite and an Optical Ground Station. For that purpose, this activity shall design, manufacture and test an end-to-end optical communications breadboard (OCB) representative of an optical feeder link. The technical feasibility and the performances of such OCB ( e.g.maximum achievable data communications rate, bit error rate statistics, availability ) shall be demonstrated under relevant field conditions (e.g. inter island link using the ESAs Optical Ground Station in Tenerife). Procurement Policy: C(1) = Activity restricted to non-primecontractors (incl. SMEs).

Develop and test miniaturised measurement techniques applicable to flows in reduced gravity. Accurate detection of free-surfaces and of volumes of gas and liquids present in a component (tank, pipe,...) requires Improvements in ground and flight sensors. Presently ESA is initiating a GSTP activity on developing mathematical models to describe the behaviour of the fluid under microgravity conditions which could benefit of the here proposed activity and vise-versa for future validation activities. Here it is proposed to investigate other techniques than the usual ones emphasising particularly on the methods developed in medicine and on promising ultrasound methods that are under development in other engineering fields.

Another point is the interest of innovative non-intrusive techniques. The presence of a probe in a flow has always some disturbing effects on the flow-field. The application of holographic interferometry to aerospace application the last years has shown the capabilities of these methods. However, the extraction of 3D mappingof the flow-field is not simple and another issue is to evaluate the existing mapping methods.
