The consortium, led by Blue Dot Solutions, will develop a feasibility study on Future Space Techniques and Technologies for the Polish Space Agency.
The study will include an analysis of the directions and opportunities for space, science, technology, economics, medical, social and legal space and technology development in the next 5, 10 and 15 years. The agreement commissioning the study was signed on October 11, 2016 by Colonel Mieczysław Lepionka, Director of the Department of Military Satellite Technologies of the Polish Space Agency, and Maciej Mickiewicz, Vice President of Blue Dot Solutions. The study should be ready by the end of February 2017.
The feasibility study on Future Space Techniques and Technologies will be the subject of the broadest thematic study of feasibility studies commissioned by the Polish Space Agency. The aim of its implementation is to analyze trends and to present conclusions and recommendations on the development of space technology and technology in the fields of satellite communications and navigation, earth and space observation, autonomous and space robotic systems, space exploration via manned and unmanned flights, propulsion and spaceflight, Satellite and biotechnology and space microbiology techniques. The study will also include an assessment of the potential of Polish actors in terms of their inclusion in the development of future space and satellite technologies and techniques, as well as suggestions for developing the necessary legal solutions in national and international terms.
The Consortium, which will prepare for the Polish Space Agency a feasibility study on Future Space Techniques and Technologies, is comprised of companies: Astri Polska sp. Z o.o., Space Research Center of the Polish Academy of Sciences, Astronomical Center. Nicolas Copernicus of the Polish Academy of Sciences, Creotech Instruments S.A., Hertz Systems Ltd. Sp. With o.o. And SpaceForest sp. Z o.o. Its leader will be Blue Dot Solutions Sp. With o.o. The competition under which the study contractor was chosen was announced on 7 June 2016. In response to the call for proposals, which was distributed to 37 entities, 3 offers were submitted to PAK.
The Polish Space Agency has so far commissioned the development of preliminary feasibility studies for three projects: The Astronomical Observation Satellite in the UV band, the Architecture of the Cosmic Space System in Poland, with particular focus on the Space Observation and Tracking Subsystem and the Satellite Radar Imaging System.
