Zakázky pro kosmodrom CSG v Kourou – nové příležitosti

CNES spolu s ESA identifikovala projekty, které firmy členských států ESA mohou realizovat pro Evropský kosmodrom v Kourou ve Francouzské Guyaně. Jedná se o projekty, které se kosmických technologií týkají spíše okrajově (klimatizace, kamery, radary, telekomunikace), a proto jsou vhodné i pro firmy, které se dosud v projektech ESA neangažovaly.

České firmy se zatím v Kourou angažují minimálně a díky tomu budou firmy z ČR (a několika dalších států - AT, DK, FI, GR, IE, LU, NO, PL, PT, RO, SE, UK) při výběrových řízeních určitým způsobem preferovány.

Níže naleznete seznam projektů, které budou realizovány v letech 2013-2015. Zájemci o práci na některém z projektů by měli co nejdříve kontaktovat delegáty Programové rady pro nosné rakety (PB-LAU) Ondřeje Rohlíka (+420 736 105 259, ondrej.rohlik@mdcr.cz) a Pavla Chovance (pavel.chovanec@czechinvest.cz), kteří pomohou získat detailnější informace, prosadit českou účast na projektu v ESA/CNES a zajistit kontakty na partnery v členských zemích ESA.

Pomoc české delegace bude tím účinnější, čím dříve bude ze strany českých firem oznámen potenciální zájem.

Earliest publication date: 2014

 

17)

Area: Telemetry facilities

Activity: Replacement of the RETA recorders

The launcher telemetry is recorded in real time by the RETA recorders installed at each downrange telemetry station; data are then transmitted to the centre for telemetry processing in Toulouse for detailed analysis off-line. These recorders are now obsolete and need to be replaced by a digital recording system with improved technical features (e.g. sequences replay, simulations, etc..) as well as a better Man-Machine Interface.

Estimated budget: > 1000 k€

Earliest publication date: end 2013

 

18)

Area: Localisation facilities

Activity: Procurement and installation of a new tracking radar

Three tracking radars are currently installed in French Guyana: Bretagne-1 (“Montagne des Peres”), Bretagne-2 (Montabo) and Adour-2 (Meteorology station).

Using the data collected by radars and telemetry stations, the localisation system computes in real time the launcher trajectory, to be subsequently used as an input for Flight Safety and telemetry stations control. The two Bretagne radars are currently being renewed, whereas Adour-2, whose life duration has already been extended for a few years will need to be replaced by 2015/2016.

The present activity focuses on the procurement and installation of a near-field tracking radar which would complement in the very short term the existing set of facilities and replace Adour-2 in the medium term.

Estimated budget: > 1000 k€

Earliest publication date: 2014

 

19)

Area: Localisation facilities

Activity: Renewal of amplifiers and antennas of the TSAR telecommand station

The TSAR (Telecommande Sauvegard ARiane) telecommand station is the only safety system enabling the transmission of the launcher neutralisation command in case of major flight anomalies.

It is constituted by 2 antennas (one of which omnidirectional), by redundant power amplifiers, coders and computers.

The purpose of this activity is to renew antennas and amplifiers, identifying for the latter a technological solution (e.g. solid state) which could improve the reliability of this critical system.

Estimated budget: > 1000 k€

Earliest publication date: 2014

 

20)

Area: Optical facilities

Activity: Upgrade to High Definition format for real-time video transmission

The purpose of the present activity is to enable the real time recording, elaboration and broadcast of High definition (HD) videos (in particular for launches broadcast) in order to comply with the standards applied by media worldwide and with the communication and public relation requirements expressed by ESA, CNES and Arianespace.

The activity includes:

1. the upgrade of the architecture of the real time audio/video transmission system,

2. the renewal of selected equipment along the whole chain (from video capturing to processing) in order to ensure compatibility with HD format,

3. the development of a shared server where images and videos can be stored to serve ESA, CNES and Arianespace communication and public relation needs.

Estimated budget: > 1000 k€

Earliest publication date: second half 2013

 

21)

Area: Meteorology facilities

Activity: Renewal of the Rodin meteorology radar

Weather forecasts are built using two meteorology radars: the main radar (Romuald) is used 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, whereas the Rodin radar guarantees an uninterrupted forecast service during Romuald unavailability. Rodin has now become obsolete and it is difficult to maintain it in operational conditions.

The present activity focuses on the replacement of the Rodin radar.

Estimated budget: > 1000 k€

Earliest publication date: 2014

 

22)

Area: Meteorology facilities

Activity: Renewal of the meteo masts and automatic stations acquisition system (SAMM – d Système d’Acquisition des Mâts MTO et stations automatiques)

Wind data are essential prior and during launch activities; this is the reason why meteorological facilities at the CSG include several masts for wind data acquisition at different heights (from 100m to 10m). The acquisition systems are now obsolete and need to be replaced.

Estimated budget: 500 - 1000 k€

Earliest publication date: 2014

 

23)

Area: Telecommunication and synchronisation facilities

Activity: Radio links upgrade

The current radio links network is no longer compatible with the telecommunication requirements at the CSG and needs to be improved.

To this end the present activity is dedicated to:

1. Increasing the bandwidth of the radio link between the Montabo radar station in Cayenne and the Technical Centre of the CSG (located at approximately 60 km distance) from 32 to 80 Mbs; such an improvement would allow establishing a high speed connection between Kourou and Europe through Cayenne.

2. Installing a new radio link with a 155 Mbs bandwidth between the Galliot telemetry station and the Technical Centre (located at approximately 7 km distance) hence introducing redundancy with respect to this specific connection.

It is worth highlighting that the abovementioned upgrades would allow having a high speed link between Kourou and Cayenne.

Estimated budget: 500 - 1000 k€

Earliest publication date: early 2014

 

24)

Area: Technical facilities

Activity: Renewal of the central system for air conditioning regulation

The regulation systems of the cold water production facilities for the S5 and for the Technical Centre have become obsolete. The same applies to the facilities regulating the overall air conditioning system such as air handling units and fan-coil units.

It is the purpose of this activity to replace the abovementioned elements with a system based on a more effective technology.

Estimated budget: > 1000 k€

Earliest publication date: early 2014

 

25)

Area: Technical facilities

Activity: Enhanced regulation of the air conditioning system

Air conditioning is one of the most energy consuming systems at the CSG and a number of measures to reduce consumption are currently being assessed. In particular, the present activity focuses on the installation of a programming device ensuring that air conditioning requirements are relaxed in non-operational environments outside working hours; the activity includes the installation of a centralised regulation system and the adaptation of individual air condensers.

Estimated budget: > 1000 k€
