COTS: a way to support EU Space Policy

Fabio Vitobello



The presentation will highlight some of the challenges of a dynamically changing global Space context. In particular, it will focus the attention on recent trends reflecting a new approach to the use and operation of satellites with larger constellations given lower costs and shorter lifetime.

The presentation will point the attention on the need for supporting the competitiveness of the European Space sector.

The Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda, as a guideline of the EU Space Research for 2021-2027, will be presented with particular focus on the chapter covering Space spin-in activities and view on COTS components.
