Funds for: To develop a European technologically non-dependent solution for launching light satellites into Low-Earth Orbit (LEO), which will enable dedicated low-cost launches
Main beneficiaries: all legal entities

Priorities and funded actions:

Objectives
– To develop a European technologically non-dependent solution for launching light satellites into Low-Earth Orbit (LEO), which will enable dedicated low-cost launches;
– The solution needs to be innovative, implementable, affordable in development and exploitation phases, and commercially viable;
 – The solution will enhance European access to space and associated technological non-dependence and thereby will provide strategic and competitive advantages for European companies, SMEs, universities and research organisations

Priorities
– While Europe has a world-class space sector, innovation in space and changing demands are leading to an increased appearance of light and agile satellites;
– Consequently, space solutions will increasingly consider this trend;
– Small satellites are well-suited for most kinds of institutional and commercial use: wireless communications networks, Internet services, broader connectivity, scientific observation, data gathering, Earth imaging and positioning

Among financed actions
– The prize relates to the development of European critical space infrastructure, which is of strategic importance and security-critical for the Union and its Member States
