The ARTES  Satcom Applications (SATCOM-APPS) programme has been created to support applications projects related to satellite telecommunications either originated by industry or in response to specific applications calls initiated by ESA. It aims to improve the competitive position of industry in ESA member states in the field of satellite telecommunications and in their associated utilisation.

In the scope of ESA Business Applications a user is defined as an entity whose needs can be covered with a service provided by a third party. By means of this, a commercial agreement is established between the user and the provider of the service.

A user can be a:

  • person who represents  a user group

  • company which provides a service or a product reseller

  • public organisation: e.g. government agency, public authority, club, international organisation, etc.

In the frame of ESA Business Applications, an industry is defined as an entity which can be involved in the service either as part of its development or as part of its provision. Most often it means space industry.

The aim of ESA Business Applications is to ensure that your needs will be satisfied by providing the most cost effective service. ESA BA will analyse the current available solutions (i.e. products and services) and integrate them in services tailored to your needs.
