< Back

Open Call Reference: HORIZON-CL4-2022-SPACE-01-11

The expected outcomes of this topic is to prepare a European pioneering, high-impact but low-cost orbital demonstration mission for On-Orbit Servicing (OOS) in 2025-2026 period that will demonstrate and showcase European know-how, support market generation, open new business opportunities, foster international cooperation and deliver a long-lasting impact in the future space ecosystem

– Prepare a low cost orbital demonstration mission integrating robotic and autonomy technologies and technical building blocks with high-impact on future commercial services applying and enhancing the European Operations Framework for OOS
– Risk reduction of the intended pioneering orbital demonstration mission as well as at raise of confidence on OOS applications in general

– Сontribute to prepare and showcase a future space ecosystem fostering the EU’s space sector competitiveness
– Further building on modularity and enabling on-orbit servicing, assembly, manufacturing and recycling
– Facilitate a smooth transition between the short-term market needs and future commercial possibilities while respecting the protection of the in-space ecosystem
