Tittle:
Medium/large companies or research centres needed to develop a design and production platform for nano-micro satellites for a proposal under the H2020 call NMBP-22-2017
Summary:
An Italian SME, with experts in engineering and project management, is developing a proposal for the H2020 call NMBP-22-2017. The aim is to develop a design and production platform to exploit process developments and plug-Y-play architectures, through the integration of finite element (FEM) simulation technologies. It may reduce the cost related to the use of the space environment and increase the possibility of using satellite services.
Companies and research centres are sought by 30 June.
Description:
The aim is to develop a design and production platform to exploit process developments and plag-Y-play architectures (making then available for satellite non raying auxiliary subsystem), through the integration of FEM simulation technologies: vibrational, thermal, modal, shock, relating to acceptance and qualification standard of satellites ECSS (European Cooperation for Space Standardization) dealing with technologies and computational models for the additive manufacturing.
The creation of a system design and production platform, network structured, using skills across to companies and research organizations (Network nodes) may allow to reduce the cost related to use of the space environment and increase the possibility of using satellite services, leaving the space system design based on top down approach in favour of a design requirements.

The project involves the creation of a service via a platform that allows the definition of the system architecture and the production of the structure of a nano-micro satellites starting from mission requirements to design, in terms of weight, power requirements (environmental and operating), space subsystems of the satellite, and then providing progressively a CAD model followed by the development of the FEM-CAM part it is necessary to use tools of mission analysis and system design which currently exist side by side with others to be developed and however to be adapted according to aspects of scale.
These tools, in order to be used and integrated within a network design, must be interfaced. This aspect leads to the need of creating a software that can pre-process the inputs or post-process the outputs so that a dialogue between the individual nodes of the platform can be achieved in an automated way allowing to define a satellite system architecture that meets the requirements of the mission at the initial design state. In order to freeze it or to modified it in the next phase. Given the integration of computing technologies and FEM simulations with additive manufacturing CAM allows to integrate the tools of virtual testing: vibration, shock, thermal calculation (which are mandatory to build ESA, ASI, NASA, JAXA mission) and topological optimization of weight with technologies process control like Selective Laser Sintering and Selective Laser Melting targeted to nano satellites or mini satellites.

For the realization of the service has to be expected the use of design information relating to the components and sensors of the satellite with dimensions weights and performances suitable for the size of the specific nano and mini satellite and for the mission.
Create a dynamic integrated database which and supports the objectives of plag -Y- play flexibility of the systems.
It is therefore useful the availability of partners (or suppliers) to adapt subsystems already developed or under development to the nano satellites or to provide information about the integration of their own products (when these would be available) in particular: battery, wheels torque or alternative micromechanical systems, microcomputer board, stars sensors, ground sensors, sun sensors, micro thruster.
For the realization of a mini constellation which demonstrates the effectiveness of the service platform, potential partners are requested to provide evidence of the ability to perform physical tests according to the ECSS.

End user like European Space Agency, Italian Space Agency, Telespazio, etc. could tap this service to reduce the construction time of a microsatellite, to replace updated sensor on a satellite which has reached its lifetime or which has to be repaired (it could be part of a constellation, for example); to reduce costs and the construction time for a constellation.
The development of this design system and production provides an Italian coordinator. The project will be submitted to the H2020 call NMBP-22-2017, with a first stage deadline on 27 October 2016 and second stage on 4 May 2017
Advantages and Innovations:
The platform allows to produce a satellite designed so as to ensure the response at mission requirements, depending on the envisaged sensor paying. This process allows to change the initial design to mount updated sensors or to replace them with others in order to produce satellites which are capable of performing alternative missions, identified in advance or during the related operational phases in case of satellite constellations. It can greatly reduce non-recurring development and partly costs related to the creation of new missions and to ensure effectiveness and efficiency in the production of micro satellites, having quicker time of response than the current production system ones.
These small satellites, designed, produced and validated in an integrated manner are compatible with many delivery systems compared to the single carrier currently used.
They can be a tool for natural resources or civil and military emergencies (increasing low-cost available the strategic potential), which ensures the coverage of areas not reached by Unmanned Aerial Vehicles or not for a long time and safely.
Many are the answers to military and civil needs promoting more missions, increasing the size of the constellations, encourage greater spatial coverage, less vulnerability and the availability of continuous innovation, making the most out of the already limited financial resources available. Compared to the current industrial scenario (where the creation of satellites with many sensors on board requires from 7 to 10 years) it can break down the barriers related to the development of extras institutional services.
Simplifying the time costs related to the transition from the definition of the mission, to its realization it is possible to open a market, linked to academic missions where each institute or universities may offer or develop a sensor in order to subsequently create an entire constellation.

Processing software writing, data calculation management with specific formats.
A partner who has developed or has used, and who is also willing to integrate it into the platform:
- Mission analysis (STK Type) for orbital parameter calculation and SK (Station Keeping) for small satellites.
- Analysis of sub-systems and energy assessment (Ecosim Type)
- Radiation ( Esarad Type)
- Dynamic analysis can predict the effect of zonal harmonics (J2 effect) on the control of a small satellite. The atmospheric drag in case of low orbits.

For the realization of the service has to be expected the use of design information relating to the components and sensors of the satellite with dimensions weights and performances suitable for the size of the specific nano and mini satellite and for the mission.
Create a dynamic integrated database which and supports the bjectives of plag -Y- play flexibility of the systems.
It is therefore useful the availability of suppliers to adapt subsystems already developed or under development to the nano satellites or to provide information about the integration of their own products (when these would be available) in particular:
