  3. 3. Aerospace Platform and STEPS Project Synergies between the Piedmont Aerospace District and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) 20072013 enabled Regione Piemonte to design and fund the initiative “Piattaforma Aerospazio” for accelerating the innovation of aerospace technology within the Region and reassuring its worldwide excellence European Regional Development Funds Macro-projects UAV Systems for civil land monitoring (SMAT F1) Green Aeronautical Engine technologies (GREAT 2020) Systems & technologies for Space Exploration (STEPS) market opportunity System Primes, SMEs, Academies and Research Centers This document is not to be reproduced, modified, adapted, published, translated in any material form in whole or in part nor disclosed to any third party without the prior written permission of Thales Alenia Space -  2012, Thales Alenia Space
  4. 4. STEPS Technology Domains Thales Alenia Space coordinated the overall project that involved Politecnico di Torino, Università di Torino, Università del Piemonte Orientale, ALTEC and 22 SMEs based in the region The 3-year reaserch activities focus on the following space exploration enabling technologies: This document is not to be reproduced, modified, adapted, published, translated in any material form in whole or in part nor disclosed to any third party without the prior written permission of Thales Alenia Space -  2012, Thales Alenia Space

  8. 8. STEPS 2 - Sistemi e Tecnologie per l’EsPlorazione Spaziale fase 2 The idea is to continue the technological development in selected areas with the objective to pass from a TRL 3 to 5/6 in order to be ready for possible in-orbit validations in the short-medium term In particular the technologies of STEPS have been screened using the following criteria: quality of the results, effectiveness of the involved partnerships, opportunities to have in-orbit validation in short/medium time frame, strategic values for their application in future space projects and maximum utilization of the infrastructures and laboratories developed in STEPS STEPS 2 started in January 2013 and will last two years including design of target flight hardware, development of a ground prototype and functional testing Total Cost ~ 10 M€ co-funded by EU and Regione Piemonte (POR FESR 2007/2013) and STEPS 2 ATS Team: 4 Large Industries, 17 SMEs, 3 Universities and 1 Research Centre This document is not to be reproduced, modified, adapted, published, translated in any material form in whole or in part nor disclosed to any third party without the prior written permission of Thales Alenia Space -  2012, Thales Alenia Space

  10. 10. Conclusions & Perspectives • The STEPS 2 project, coordinated by Thales Alenia Space – Italia, involves the Politecnico di Torino, the Piedmont Universities and research centers, and an articulated network of PMI afferent to the Piedmont Aerospace District • The various STEPS 2 partners contribute to the consortium not just with their specific expertise but also with the relevant results of on-going contracts, making up a synthesis of the relevant scientific, technological and industrial Piedmont capabilities • STEPS 2 shows evident transversal synergies with the other two projects of the Piedmont Aerospace District in terms of competences, technologies, products and infrastructures. This value is reinforced by the network established within the District with possible strategic follows-up also in other fields like Civil Protection, Energy, Mobility, Robotics, etc. • STEPS 2 contributes to increase the competitiveness in the Regional Productive System promoting PMI involvement in the space sector • STEPS 2 promotes consolidation of the District’s technological excellences with advanced technologic spin-offs in other market sectors • STEPS 2 demonstrates the Piedmont entrepreneurial and research capabilities aiming at developing strategic technologies that might have the opportunity to be validated in space in a short-medium term in some of the Space Exploration initiatives that are planned at national and international levels • STEPS 2 promotes the general public engagement and young generation education in space exploration development This document is not to be reproduced, modified, adapted, published, translated in any material form in whole or in part nor disclosed to any third party without the prior written permission of Thales Alenia Space -  2012, Thales Alenia Space
