Industry Workshop on ESA 4S Announcement of Opportunity (Secure Satcom for Safety and Security)

on 11 April 2019

On 4 April 2019, the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Romanian Space Agency (ROSA) organised the Industry Workshop on ESA 4S Announcement of Opportunity (Secure Satcom for Safety and Security), at the Conference centre of the National Institute for Aerospace Research "Elie Carafoli" (INCAS).

In response to growing challenges and opportunities in the realm of safety and security, ESA is proposing an evolution of its support to related European industrial efforts and EU initiatives. The new Announcement of Industrial Opportunity is part of ESA’s overall programme for Secure Satcom for Safety and Security, known simply as “4S”.

ESA aims to consolidate and increase its efforts under a new 4S ARTES thematic framework, inviting Outline Proposals that exploit synergies between the existing ARTES elements such as Core Competitiveness, Business Applications and Partner Programmes.

ESA’s approach is to use dialogue with industry to support the preparation of consolidated 4S proposals for ESA Space19+, the next ESA Council at Ministerial level, to be held in Seville in November 2019.

The deadline for industry to submit a Notice of Intent to ESA was 22 March 2019,  followed by the ESA-Industry workshop in Bucharest on 4 April, after which the deadline for submitting Outline Proposals will be 10 May.
