Future Projects

The Future Projects and Ground Segment Team performs the conceptual definition and establishes the initial programmatic estimates for the implementation and operation of systems conceived for development 5, 10 or 20 years in the future. Technologies which are critical to enabling future missions are investigated, prototyped and evaluated. 

The team studies and prototypes enabling technology such as Lunar avionics, In-Situ Resource Utilisation and the end-to-end data processing of time critical Earth Observation satellite data.

The team has expertise in system design, avionics, mission analysis, operations concept modelling, ground and space segments as well as communications for applications to Earth Observation, In Orbit Demonstration, Exploration, International Space Station etc.
