Future Moon exploration missions require very high data rates, in particular for the uplink, that are not supported by the current state-of-art on-board technology.This activity focuses on the design of a receiver capable of handling very high data rates and lowSNR (Signal-to-Noise Ratio) values, making novel use of the 22GHz for TTC (Telemetry, Tracking Command) uplink.The activity encompasses the following tasks:1 - Consolidation of the high level requirements of a lunar communications architecture for the Earth-Space link2 - Design the overall on-board receiver architecture based on the requirements as derived in the first phase of the activity. In the frame of the activity, all receiver loops are designed and simulated taking into account the receivercomplexity, power consumption, reliability and flexibility.3 - Implementation of a receiver breadboard. Validation of the breadboard is to be performed against a groundtransmitter.Procurement Policy: C(2) = A relevant participation (in terms of quality and quantity) of non-primes (incl. SMEs) is required. For additional information please go to EMITS news "Industrial Policy measures for non-primes, SMEs and RD entities in ESA programmes".
