Space - Technology Integration and Flight Demostrators, Aerothermodynamics, Structures and Materials, Diagnostic Methodologies and Advanced Measurement Techniques

The purpose of this line of research and development is to increase and consolidate CIRA's expertise in space technologies and systems for access, re-entry and operating missions in LEO orbit, as well as interplanetary missions to the Moon and Mars. The consolidated sector of re-entry from LEO orbit missions and the area of space transport are studied.

Furthermore, as the sector of observation of Earth from space is considered to be particularly strategic, it is necessary to identify application technologies that make it possible to create (using manufacturing technologies and innovative integrations) and deploy satellite systems (micro-satellites in particular) at lower costs. These fully complement, and can be integrated with, other alternative detection sources (UAV platforms and/or sensors in situ) for the faster processing of data. A specific technology that CIRA has already been using for a while is Additive Layer Manufacturing: its use in the space sector extends its scope of application.

Also taking into account recent NASA studies, according to which man will spend 10 years in cis-lunar space between 2020 and 2030, and some recent initiatives of NASA and ESA in this field (Next Generation Evolvable Lunar Architecture and Moon Village), studies in exploration systems will be continued and consolidated.

CIRA aims to increase and consolidate its skills with regard to space systems and technologies for access, re-entry and operating missions in lower earth orbit and interplanetary missions to the moon and Mars. CIRA is also studying the technologies required to build satellite systems and put them into operation at reduced costs.
