Project description

English EN

Aiming towards more efficient space launches

The push for space exploration and communications has resulted in costly missions, added space debris, and issues of safe disposal on re-entry. ASCenSIon project is focused on multiple payloads in orbits, reuse of propulsion systems, and ecologic and economic sustainability. It will examine technologies both in simulations and test runs to assess durability of propulsion systems, and will develop systems for monitoring orbit and landing conditions for multiple launches. This will require advanced models in thermodynamics and aerodynamics tested against cold-flow and hot fire techniques, wireless sensor networks, and reliable guidance, navigation and control systems (GNC) to ensure feasibility and application, changing the profile of space launches.
