The development and promotion of system elements and technologies for new user services is of prime importance to promote existing space systems and to develop the markets for advanced systems. There exists already a large base of Small and Medium Size enterprises (SMEs) bringing innovation into terrestrial communication applications and services, increasingly in combination with navigation services. For the more specialised field of satellite communications the entry threshold is relatively high due to the technical, organisational and operational complexity involved.

The proposed 'Call for Proposals' intends to offer an opportunity for innovative SMEs and in particular SMEs who have never had a contract with ESA Telecom and who consider entering into the field of satellite communications. It aims to provide support through the various development stages of researching, developing and refining a business proposition in the field of satellite communications. The development activities proposed in response to this 'Call for Proposals' must be relevant for the satellite telecommunications sector and have to include the Satcom component as an essential element of the proposition: space-borne equipment, ground segment, application/services involving telecommunication satellites.

The three areas where proposals are expected are: Enabling Technology for Satcom, Satcom Applications and Services, Location Based Communication Applications (combination of satellite communications and navigation). The purpose of this initiative is to facilitate the entry into the satellite communications field, hence the chosen activity should ultimately lead to a commercial proposition. The proposed activities deal with product development, integration and demonstration activities based on existing technologies tailored to pre-operational products, systems and applications/services in a pre-competitive environment. They include the elaboration of contacts to and involvement of target customer groups, operators and suppliers.

The initiative will be executed in a two-step process. The first step will require an Outline Proposal summarising in a few pages the identified business opportunity, the role of Satcom, the proposed solution and project content, and administrative information. The Outline Proposal will be evaluated by ESA and the bidder will be informed of the result. The bidder will get the opportunity to iterate and improve the Outline Proposal. At successful conclusion of this process, the bidder will be invited to submit a Complete Proposal (second step) in accordance with this 'Call for Proposals'. ESA funding will be provided on a co-funding basis up to 50% with a maximum of 200 kEuro. The total cost of a single activity is allowed to exceed 400 kEuro. Bidders shall be aware that the award of a contract is also subject to endorsement of the required ESA budget by the respective governmental representatives at ESA (National Delegations). The process to achieve this endorsement will be coordinated by ESA and information will be provided to the bidder on submission of the Outline Proposal. Although not a competitive tender action, this 'Call for Proposals' is published among these in order to achieve a higher degree of visibility. The closing date above had to be established solely for technical reasons connected with EMITS and ought to be ignored.

To study and prove by analysis the feasibility of antenna pattern control by ad-hoc modulation of the reflector surface-impedance, inlucluding the reduction of the lower bound on the F/D parameter for good scanning and polarisation purity. Beam shaping is one of the most demanding antenna features required by virtually all applications. The novel concept of pattern control by impedance surface modulation is likely to offer a very effective alternative to existing solutions with the potential of reducing complexity and costs. The concept is of interest for a wide range of purposes, including reflector antenna feeds (to avoid or complement shaping), array elements (to control the element pattern) as well as avionics antennas.
Recent developments have lead to the availability of a modelling technique allowing the efficient design of radiating structures offering a high degree of flexibility in the dynamic surfaceimpedance, i.e. the impedance seen by electromagnetic waves interacting with the structure. The main tool for its control is the modulation of the (artificial) equivalent dielectric constant of the surface, which can be achieved in various ways, e.g. by using multi-layer printed structures with variable shapes or thickness. For instance, the intrinsic limitation of a higlhy conducting reflector surface can be bypassed by moving away from the "perfect mirror" behaviour without compromising reflectivity in an energy balancesense, by modulating the surface characteristics in such a way to obtain a (local) modification of the Snell law. The activity Involves the assessment of candidate applications and the initial study of the most promising one with the demonstration of feasibility by analysis on a set of application scenarii (different coverage requirements, linear and circular polarisation) as well as the devlopments of the tools required to layout the antenna surface and optimise its design. Performance demonstration shall be handled at sample level.
