PRELIMINARY ELEMENTS ON EUROPEAN REUSABLE AND COST-EFFECTIVE HEAVY LIFT TRANSPORTATION (PROTEIN)

on 13 July 2022

ESA Open Invitation to Tender: 1-11440
Open Date: 11/07/2022 16:38 CEST
Closing Date: 12/09/2022 13:00 CEST

The ITT is aimed at procuring the preparatory activities for European heavy lift launcher (PROTEIN) architecture Phase 0/A analysis. This analysis has as purpose to develop an adapted and more performant transport means to accommodate large space infrastructures and deep space missions. It is foreseen that after 2035, with the European Green Deal initiative, current European launch vehicles will not be able to transport large payloads with the necessary cadence. The present PROTEIN activity will propose a preliminary European Heavy Lift Launcher (EHLL) architecture in order to foresee delivering of at least 1500 t per year to space.
