ESA title

Novel Internet Of Things Services Using Space Capabilities

  • Activity Feasibility Study
  • Opening date 19-01-2017
  • Closing date 13-04-2017

ESA has launched an opportunity to offer funding and support to companies for the business case assessment and development of new space enabled Internet of things (IoT) services that target relevant customer needs.

IoT is already used in many parts of daily life: human-centred applications related to health & fitness, home-automation & security, smart cities & transportation, connected vehicles, retail, production or industrial work environments are some of its applications.

Depending on their purpose, IoT solutions may require remote or global interconnectivity, robust communication, positioning, precision timing, remote monitoring and control, in-situ and remote sensors, technology for harsh environments, geo-information etc. Space assets and technologies, such as satellite communication, satellite navigation, Earth observation, or human spaceflight, can satisfy some of these demands and empower IoT services.

This call is hosted under ESA’s Integrated Applications Promotion (IAP) programme’s Feasibility Studies scheme. Feasibility Studies resulting in compelling business cases will be eligible for additional funding supporting a follow-up IAP Demonstration Project.
