The Propulsion, Aerothermodynamics and Flight Vehicles Engineering Division (TEC-MP) of ESA invites you to participate to the Research and Development (R+D) days.

During this event, you will have the opportunity to be exposed to major outcomes and progress of research and development activities at TEC-MP.  In addition, you will have the opportunity to hear about potential technology development activities that will be proposed by the TEC-MP team for the new technology workplans. All will be in short-form presentations, followed by Q&A sessions. Additionally, surveys will be conducted afterwards to allow to collect any additional feedback and ideas you might have. The output of this event will be used to compose an input for the upcoming TEC-MP R+D Roadmaps. 

The topics of interest which will be presented are:

  • Towards Greener Propulsion

  • Advanced Propulsion Systems

  • High Performance and Industrialisation of Electric Propulsion

  • Disruptive Electric Propulsion

  • Components for Propulsion Systems 

  • Sensors and Measurements Techniques

  • Architecture and Technology Assessment for New Space Transportation Vehicles, Reusability and Re-entry 

  • Fluid Dynamics Tools and Techniques, Flight Data Analysis Tools

  • Technologies for Space Logistics and In-Orbit Servicing

  • In-Orbit Demonstrators for Propulsion, Aerothermodynamics and Flight Vehicles Engineering

  • Ground Testing Facilities for Fluid Dynamics, Propulsion and Flight Vehicles Engineering

The R+D days will take place online over three days and will be hosted on WebEx.

Registration is free of charge, however it is restricted to organisations from ESA Member States and Associate Member States.

We look forward to seeing you at the R+D days of the TEC-MP Division!
