Future Launcher Avionic Programme (FLAP)

This project aims to develop know-how and technologies for launch vehicles, in the domain of GNC and next-generation avionics, with the objective to achieve a functional validation of integrated technologies.



The project aims to define and prototype a multi-radio communication platform capable of using, in cognitive and opportunistic mode, heterogeneous wireless communication technologies for monitoring and control of complex systems for industrial and aerospace markets.

Highly Operable Sensor Network (HOSN)

This project focuses on sensing nodes development (powered by energy harvesting technologies). The nodes are conceived to be used on-ground, during storage, pre-launch phase, and  during  ascent/in orbit phases, e.g.  Launcher staging to allow communication between stages after separation. 






This project aims to develop an energy harvesting device based on lead-free piezoelectric materials. The device converts structural vibration energy to electrical energy,  allowing – when coupled to a wireless data relay system – an harness-free architecture for sensing units.
