EROSS

EROSS (European Robotic Orbital Support Services) objective is to demonstrate the European solutions for the Servicers and the Serviced LEO/GEO satellites, enabling a large range of efficient and safe orbital support services. The project will assess and demonstrate the capability of the on-orbit servicing spacecraft (chaser) to perform rendezvous, capturing, grasping, berthing and manipulating of a collaborative client satellite (target) provisioned for servicing operations including refuelling and payload transfer/replacement.

In this project, PIAP Space is responsible for providing the LAR Gripper for the berthing operation, the F/T sensor for the robotic arm and satellite mock-ups for demonstration purposes.

Consortium led by Thales Alenia Space France (TASF) consist of 10 partners: GMV, NTUA, PIAP Space, SENER, SINTEF, SODERN, SPACEAPPS, TASI, TASUK.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under Grant Agreement No 821904.
