The activities in the SPACE sector concern Systems for Access to Airspace, Satellites and Systems for Exploration, Space Propulsion Systems, On-board Systems, Sustainability, reliability and safety.     

The Systems for Access to Airspace and Exploration at CIRA are for increasing and consolidating knowledge of systems and space technologies for access, re-entry and operating missions in LEO orbit and interplanetary missions to the Moon and Mars.

With regard to Propulsion Systems, Europe plays a key role in the field of launchers, and Italy, in turn, plays a significant role in the development of small launchers. In the context of the development programme of the Vega launcher (launcher for satellites weighing up to 1,500 kg in LEO orbit), CIRA is committed to certain technological drivers. In fact, the HYPROB programme, assigned to CIRA by MIUR, aims to make the Centre a structure of excellence on a European level, with the training of highly qualified personnel and the development of advanced technologies.

CIRA is also committed to the development and validation of enabling technologies for autonomous GNC systems for re-entry and launching missions, and cooperative control systems for mini and micro satellites. These technologies, relating to On-board Systems, are being further developed to guarantee higher than average levels of operational precision, reaction times compatible with the high levels of energy and speed involved, and autonomous self-diagnostics and management compatible with limited (or no) human-machine interaction.

In the case of Sustainability, Reliability and Safety, CIRA is involved in Integrity Engineering and autonomous systems for critical missions.
