ESA Open Invitation to Tender: 1-11462
Open Date: 13/07/2022 12:59 CEST
Closing Date: 16/08/2022 13:00 CEST

Two space logistics proof-of-concepts (PoCs) are planned to be implemented by STS-F, to ensure the acquisition of key transport capabilities, notably for rendezvous capture and cryogenic in-orbit refuelling capabilities). These PoCs will mature the required standardized interfaces and culminate at In-Orbit Demonstrations between ISTVs.This Request for Information (RFI) initiates the implementation process of a first in-orbit demonstration mission dubbed PoC 1, with the focus on Rendezvous capture capabilities between In-Space Transportation Vehicles (ISTVs).The PoC-1 project will consist of following steps:PoC 1 phase 0/A: will start by theend of the 3rd quarter of 2022, following a selection of the contractors based on a demo-mission contestPoC 1 Phases B/C/D/E, upto the in-orbit demonstration: will be implemented after the ESA Council at ministerial level to be held in November 2022 (CM22), following a competition among contest winners.
