Horizon 2020 ICT

COMPET-2-2016: Maturing satellite communication technologies

Deadline: March 03, 2016

The aim of this topic is to demonstrate, in a relevant environment, technologies, systems and sub-systems for satellite communications. The proposed work should address and demonstrate significant improvements in miniaturisation, power reduction, efficiency, performance, flexibility, resilience, versatility, security and/or increased functionality and should demonstrate complementarity to activities already funded by Member States and the European Space Agency (e.g. the ARTES programme).

In this context, proposals are sought with relevance for space in the following fields:

  • Advanced communication technologies for feeder or service links, preparing satellite networking in the Terabit-throughput 
  • Photonics technology 
  • Active antennas building blocks 
  • Flexible repeater 
  • Reconfigurable coverages 
  • New generation of waveforms and related protocols 
  • End to end system enablers in telecommunications
