Update Reason: Tender issueThe scope of this activity is the pre-development of AOCS sensor and/or communications technologies enabling CubeSat nano-satellites to perform future in-orbit demonstration missions and real mission applications of benefit to ESA and other potential users, wherehigher pointing accuracy, higher data rates and compatibility with existing ground station networks are needed. CubeSats are defined here as nano-satellites whose designs are compliant with the CubeSat standard and are multiples of a single CubeSat unit (10x10x10cm, <1.33 kg) up to 6 units. The most critical technologies shall be identified and matured under this activity in order to reach high Technology Readiness Levels such that they may be validated in orbit on future CubeSat missions as a follow-on step.
