ESA’s General Studies Programme (GSP):  ESA’s General Studies Programme (GSP) Andrés Gálvez – DG-PI Clovis Jacinto de Matos- DG-PI Ian Carnelli- DG-PI An overview Introduction:  Introduction In spite of its relatively modest in resources (28 MEUR in 2007), the GSP provides the environment for key ESA preparatory work GSP activities cover a wide range of topics with links to all ESA programmes – it is difficult to group activities Still, activities can be classified in 3 wide categories: Strategy (A), Programmes (B) and Interdisciplinary Projects (C). What are the contents: GSP activity categories 1/3:  What are the contents: GSP activity categories 1/3 A. Strategy and policy activities Studies that contribute to the formulation of the overall ESA strategy: industrial sector & policy studies, communication and legal issues, Analysis of evolving environment (e.g. Sustainable Space Operation and Development Private Spaceflight, assessments linked to Space Debris) What are the contents: GSP activity categories 2/3:  What are the contents: GSP activity categories 2/3 B. Programmes Feasibility phA studies of new mission concepts including D/SCI’s CV 2015-25, Exploration NEXT mission (TBC) “Horizontal” phA mission studies e.g. In- Orbit Demo serving several user directorates Pre-phase A studies leading to mission proposals (D/EOP’s Sentinel and Explorers, D/HME’s NEXT) -often as CDF activities- & related scientific studies User requirement surveys, roadmap definition and pilot projects, for new programme proposals e.g. in the past Aurora, Multimedia (ARTES3), GNSS2 (Galileo), RLVs (FLPP); currently Space Situational Awareness (SSA) What are the contents: GSP activity categories 3/3:  What are the contents: GSP activity categories 3/3 C. Interdisciplinary Projects (IPs): Assessment studies & cross-domain activities IPs are more general activities, potentially serving one or several programmes and/or involving several technical domains e.g. “Feasibility Study For a Reduced Planetary Navigation and Communication System ” IPs also include analysis of new working methodologies and tools for several ESA users. Past examples SpaceGRID, CDF, ACT, etc. Especially relevant for technology R&D, they provide systems perspective (≠missions!)

Earth Sciences and Applications Quantitative assessment of the operational value of space-borne radar and lidar measurements of cloud and aerosol profiles Radiative transfer modelling for the characterization of natural burnt surfaces B. Technology Demonstration System studies In flight research on radiation / ablation coupling filling a 40 year gap after FIRE2 Optimised, highly reliable nano-satellite platform C. GS, Operations and simulation On line short term planning of Sciences operations Final Remarks:  Final Remarks The 2007-2008 is now about to conclude, and a new cycle is already in preparation. Information on Spanish general strategic and system study priorities is welcome (no later than Dec 07) GSP is also investigating the definition of “themes” that provide system focus, “clustering” activities with a common or related goal It is proposed to regularly exchange views and discuss priorities / activity themes in e.g. a bilateral per year Slide12:  Backup slides GSP Interdisciplinary Project “Themes”: examples Interdisciplinary Projects & System Scenarios 1/3:  Interdisciplinary Projects & System Scenarios 1/3 1. Scenarios for in-orbit technology demonstration 1.1. Visual-Nav, Auto r-d-v and tracking experiments in a small (interplanetary) mission 1.2. “System of micro-Systems” (SoS): system integration in micromecatronics and avionics. 1.3. Operational and payload techniques demo for small EO missions – “PROBA 1+” Interdisciplinary Projects & System Scenarios 2/3:  Interdisciplinary Projects & System Scenarios 2/3 2.
