Space Telecommunications Rapid Iod/ioV INteGrated service

In the Space market landscape, the increasing demand for advanced technologies, systems, services and applications that deliver higher performance at lower cost, is putting high pressure on all stakeholders (e.g. system integrators, supply chain, operators and service providers) that need to accelerate their innovation cycles and to reduce the time to market. This brings the need to shorten the development finding smart and cost-effective ways to overcome the so-called Valley of Death by means of an IOV/IOD missions.

In this perspective, STRIVING introduces itself as a one-stop-shop commercial service offering to both private and public entities affordable and effective access to space for testing, validating and/or operating their innovative solutions. Sitael, the Space Mission Provider (SMP), acts as a single interface to customers, leading an industrial team composed also by IMT, Planetek and Tyvak International.

The service infrastructure is currently under development within a public-private partnership between ESA/ASI and Sitael in the frame of the ARTES PIONEER Initiative. The maiden mission will be offering the opportunity of free rides for selected payloads.
