  • Date limite de soumission le 29 Novembre 2016 - Appel d'offre de l'ESA "DEVELOPMENT OF AN ACCELERATION INSENSITIVE, THERMAL NOISE MITIGATED, OPTICAL STABILISING REFERENCE CAVITY (OSRC) ENGINEERING MODEL"

    AO8657

    Open date 18/10/2016

    Closing date 29/11/2016 13:00

    Optical feedback correction of the frequency of a narrow band laser using an OSRC and feedback electronics can lead to orders of magnitude reduction in the phase noise, quantified as frequency noise spectral density, and thus the linewidth. The combination of a laser, having suitable wavelength/frequency and preliminary frequency response characteristics, with an OSRC using appropriate frequency locking techniques, can lead to further orders of magnitude reduction in the phase noise and the linewidth while maintaining good frequency drift characteristics. The laser line-width reduction using an OSRC is 5-6 orders of magnitude. Nevertheless the opto-mechanical design, the OSRC structure support and the environment of the OSRC will set a limit to the achievable linewidth reduction. The presence of vibration (micro-vibrations) and thermal variations during operation lead to minute length changes which can be detected both in the axial and transverse directions. ESA has supported the development of the Optical Stabilising Reference Cavity [OSRC] as a core element for meeting future space missions. These would be missions where the principal requirements of ultra-narrow laser linewidth (ultra-low phase noise) and low laser frequency drift can be met. Such future missions would include, Space Optical Clocks (SOC), laser stabilisation for LISA, Next Generation Gravity Mission (NGGM).In the TRP activity: Design Analysis of Stable Optical Reference Cavities three different cavity designs were evaluated using a FEA implementation of the optomechanical system. All three cavity designs, with corresponding FEA models (using a high density mesh) were developed and were then subjected to the simulated effects of vibration and thermal vacuum cycling to evaluate the changes in their critical parameters. An estimate of the sensitivity to the acceleration loads was also calculated. With the simulation data collected a direct measurement was made of the passive sensitivity of the Fractional Frequency Instabilities as a function of g.

  • Date limite de soumission le 28 septembre 2016 - Appel d'offre de l'ESA "PHOTON COUNTING GROUND BASED OPTICAL COMMUNICATIONS DETECTOR"

    Optical communications technology offers the potential of a dramatic increase in data rates, specifically in the down-link of science data, thereby allowing for a substantial increase in science return. Direct detection technology using pulse position modulation (PPM) is regarded as the preferred solution for « deep space » optical links. The two primary wavelength bands being considered are 1064nm and 1550nm. Among the challenges to be addressed prior to any implementation of an operational Deep-Space optical terminal is ahighly sensitive, high-bandwidth optical detector. Single-photon counting detection capability is required for distances of severalAU, and offers the best link efficiency even for much shorter distances (e.g. Moon). The objective of this activity is to develop and characterize a near-single-pohoton-counting quadrant (4 pixel) detector as communications receiver for photon-starved direct-to-ground optical satellite links that is also capable of high-bandwidth tracking. The development is performance oriented and does not focus on a particular detector technology. Candidate technologies are envisaged to be APDs in HgCdTe (MCT) or other suitable materials (such as InGaAs, AlGaAs, …), IPDs, or Super-conducting nano-structures (nano-wires).C(1) = Activity restricted to non-prime contractors (incl. SMEs). For additional information please go to EMITS news (dated 05/02/2001) « Industrial Policy measures for non-primes, SMEs and RD entities in ESA programmes »

  • Date limite de soumission le 8 septembre 2016 - Appel d'offre de l'ESA "NOVEL DEEP SPACE STATIONS ARCHITECTURES FOR FREQUENCY GENERATION, CONVERSION & DISTRIBUTION - T712-402GS - EXPRO+"

    Current ESA Deep Space stations frequency plan is based on use of S-, X- and Ka-band frequency allocations and on a fixed-frequency down converting scheme at 70 MHz. Moreover, the currently distributed frequency reference is100 or 5 MHz and distribution is performed via coaxial cables. Such technical constraints come from legacy designs and implementations and shall be reviewed, in terms of performance, cost and ease of maintenance, taking into consideration obsolescence of currently deployed equipment, new mission needs and maintenance streamlining. Technology advancements in terms of frequency and time generation and distribution, frequency multiplication, utilisation of optical fibres and related RF-to-optical and optical-to-RF converters, digital signal processing shall be exploited and adapted to the purpose, with the scope of obtaining state of the art performance and reducing current implementation costs. New generations of ultra-stable clocks with ultimate performance are providing as natural output frequencies in the GHz range. The direct use of a frequency reference in ESTRACK within this range would mean an improvement in several areas:- Simplification of the down-conversion chain, with less elements and less complex. This would reduce the overall cost of the station.- The generation of the Local Oscillator inside the frequency converters will be easier. The price of the frequency converters would be reduced. The performance in terms of phase noise and stability would be better, opening the door to improvements in orbit determination accuracy, as well as for the support of more demanding scientific missions and radioscience research.- Possibility to have a larger band atthe output of the frequency converters, allowing higher data rates and better radioscience research.- The use of a higher frequency reference reduce the multiplication ratio up to the carrier frequency. In this way, the impact on the performance of the reference clock in terms of phase noise and stability is minimised and profiting the most from new generations of ultra-stable clocks- The use of fibre optic for the distribution of frequency improves the EMC performance Plus d’informations sur le site EMITS de l’ESA :http://emits.sso.esa.int/emits/owa/emits_online.showao?actref=16.112.05&type=mail


  • Date limite de soumission le 6 septembre 2016 - Appel d'offre de l'ESA "CARRIER PHASE POSITIONING TECHNIQUES FOR MASS MARKET GNSS RECEIVERS - EXPRO PLUS"

    Currently carrier phase positioning techniques assume the utilization of a 
    professional receiver, whose main advantages are the reduced multipath impact 
    and the dual frequency tracking capability. Furthermore, professional 
    receivers have limited capability to track non-line of sight satellites, 
    especially in challenging environments (like urban ones).Most of the GNSS 
    users are nowadays exploiting mass market receivers. Those receivers are 
    characterized by single frequency use (but for the future it could be also 
    dual frequency) a high robustness signal tracking, and low C/No acquisition 
    and tracking thresholds. Those capabilities increase dramatically the 
    satellites availability in challenging environments (e.g. urban environments 
    and urban canyons). However, tracking noise is typically higher, mainly 
    becausethey are more sensitive to multipath than the professional 
    receivers.The main carrier-phase based techniques are Precision Point 
    Positioning (PPP)and Real Time Kinetic (RTK/WRTK).PPP is in principle a 
    worldwide service while RTK/WRTK is a local/wide area service. Those 
    techniques are normally based in professional receivers.The task included in 
    this activity arefirstly to do an assessment of the current PPP and RTK/WRTK 
    state of the art algorithms performance when using mass-market receivers in 
    challenging environments (e.g. urban).Secondly to improve those 
    algorithms.Then, to defined a proof of concept (PoC) with acommercial chipset 
    to test the most important aspects of the improved PPP algorithms and 
    characterize its performance (accuracy andconvergence time) in selected and 
    agreed representative scenarios.The conclusions of the PoC shall be used for 
    iterating the algorithms in order to improve them further. Finally, a set of 
    recommendations, algorithms and PoC results shall be provided.Procurement

    Communication links between GNSS satellites are required if the constellation 
    shall operate for an extended time without ground contact. Under such

    As a system providing timing services, Galileo disseminates an accurate prediction of the offset between its own timescale (GalileoSystem Time, GST)and Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). The offset between GST and the GPS Timescale is also disseminated to guarantee interoperability between the two systems. The relationship between these timescales shall therefore be properly estimated to within a known uncertainty. One of the key contributor in this estimation is the receiver chain (GNSS receiver + antenna), whose internal delays and delays to the user clock shall be accurately determined. Most calibration procedures in place today, in particular theones recommended by the Bureau International des Poids et Mesures (BIPM), are based on relative methods and applicable to GPS and GLONASS. Alternative methods (e.g. based on absolute delays measurements) are also under development.The activity shall start with areview of the state-of-the art methods and techniques, as well as their applicability to Galileo. Second, a procedure shall be developed with the goal to achieve an uncertainty in the receiver chain delay measurement of one nanosecond, with minimum impact on the link operation and associated logistics (need for dedicated equipment, access and interface to the sitea?|). The procedure shall also include the proposed verification approach (e.g. comparison against other methods). A calibration campaign shall be executed on a number of representative receiver chains (test equipment and tools vailable

    The realization of high performance neutral atom optical atomic frequency standards and clocks is dependent on high spectral resolution laser spectroscopy of the clock transition. Ultra high resolution spectroscopy (at high signal to noise ratios) has been realized by the implementation of the optical lattice. The lattice enables large numbers of cold neutral atoms co-existing with minimal collisional effects . The implementation of the optical lattice at the so-called magic wavelength of the clock transition states minimizes the frequency shift due to the polarizability mismatch between the upper and lower states of the clock transition in the presence of the laser interrogating source (at 698nm).An optical lattice is formed by two overlapping laser beams, giving rise to a periodic intensity pattern due to interference. This intensity variation is experienced as a periodic potential by the atoms that are being trapped. The periodic potential can be controlled in depth via the intensity of the interfering beams and the angle between the beams determines the lattice spacing. This spacing is just half the laser wavelength for counter-propagating beams. It will support the continuation of the Sr lattice development for D-HSO [Space Optical Clock].

    The activity investigates the feasibility of having real-time GNSS-based absolute navigation at sub-centimetre level (error < 1 cm in the position domain) by a: [1] New generation GNSS System, named as High Definition GNSS (HD-GNSS), which is built upon:

    • Incorporating additional GNSS satellites at MEO orbit.
    • Enhancing satellite ranging signals, by increasing RF carrier-phase stability over direction of transmission and over time.
    • Enhancing satellite orbit and clock information within the navigation message

    Note: The European Galileo System is the starting point for the HD-GNSS system. The activity objectives encompass the HD-GNSS system architecture definition, and its preliminary design (limited to critical constituents); putting a very special emphasis on studying how satellite orbit and clock information in the navigation message could be enhanced, in order to make its contribution to the overall UERE, compatible with the HD-GNSS system target positioning accuracy. [2] New generation GNSS User equipment, named as High Definition User (HD-USER), built upon evolutions on the dual-constellation multi-carrier ambiguity resolution techniques. Note: The United States GPS III system is selected as the 2nd constellation. The GPS III system is external to the HD-GNSS system. The activity objectives encompass the HD-USER definition, and its preliminary design (limited to critical constituents); putting a very special emphasis on studying how user equipment positioning algorithms could be enhanced by advanced dual-constellation multi-carrier ambiguity resolution techniques (MCAR), solving carrier-phase ambiguities to integer numbers, with very short convergence time. – [3] The identification of the associated enabling technologies, and maturity levels (TRL).

  • Date limite de soumission le 14/01/2016 - Appel d'offre BPI France "4e appel à projets de R&D structurants pour la compétitivité"

    Les projets de R&D structurants doivent viser notamment des retombées économiques et technologiques directes sous forme de nouveaux produits, services et technologies et des retombées indirectes en termes de structuration durable de filières.

    Ils supposent une collaboration structurée permettant un effet diffusant et intégrateur au sein d’une filière plutôt que de simples relations autour d’un projet de R&D donné et limité dans le temps. Ils peuvent contribuer à structurer des filières industrielles existantes ou émergentes en relation avec la recherche publique et renforcer les positions des industries et entreprises de services sur des marchés porteurs.

    Les projets attendus correspondent à des assiettes de travaux d’un montant strictement supérieur à 5 millions d’euros et pouvant atteindre voire dépasser 50 millions d’euros.
