Warning!

  • Without EMITS registration (ESA Bidder Code) there is NO PECS contract possible

  • Furthermore, future calls are meant to be published on EMITS ONLY, meaning that without registration there is no access to:

  • 1) Invitation-To-Tender (ITT) package2) Reference documentation linked to ITT3) Access to any clarification in the frame of the ITT

  • Note:

  • Number of currently registered Slovene entities: 2 only!

    3. Tender EvaluationEvaluation Criteria

    See Section 9.B of Special Conditions of tender.

    ESA’s Tender Evaluation Board (TEB) will evaluate the outline proposals using the following criteria:

    1) CLARITY OF THE TECHNICAL OBJECTIVES AND DEFINITION OF THE REQUIREMENTS FOR THE PROPOSED WORK. QUALITY OF ENGINEERING APPROACH AND DISCUSSION OF PROBLEM AREAS. BACKGROUND AND EXPERIENCE OF THE COMPANY (IES) RELATED TO THE PARTICULAR FIELD CONCERNED, INCLUDING ADEQUACY OF PROPOSED FACILITIES. QUALITY AND SUITABILITY OF PROPOSED PROGRAMME OF WORK.

    2) CURRENT AND TARGETED MATURITY STATUS OF THE DEVELOPMENT; PROSPECTS FOR USE IN ESA PROGRAMMES; CONSISTENCY WITH PROGRAMMATIC OBJECTIVES.

    5. What to submit?Who can be involved?

    From Cover Letter:

    1. The present Call for Ideas (CI) is addressed only to national companies (including SME) or academia and research organisations.

    Recipients of the present CI are therefore requested to note that the Agency can only consider ideas from companies or organisations residing in the country. Consortia including companies & organisations within other ESA Member States may be accepted if duly justified. Tasks assigned to non-national entities shall in any case not constitute the core activities of the proposed study or development, since entities outside of the country cannot be funded by PECS.


    Esa pecs procedures and emits

    5. What to submit?Who can be involved?

    Tips:

    - If your company/institute has no expertise in space activities a non-national partner may be part of the team but you have to ensure that you are doing the core activities and that he is funded outside of PECS.

    - If test or qualification facilities are necessary and these or the know-how to do it are not available in the country, you may have a non-national partner (as prime or sub-contractor as appropriate). Non available services in the country can be paid by PECS.


    Esa pecs procedures and emits

    5. What to submit?What types of activities?

    From Cover Letter:

    The subject of the present CI is exclusively for:

    a) Flight Hardware activities with preference for those related to launcher or satellite platform technologies and sensors or to generic technologies with potential for re-use (the start TRL shall be at least 3 and the target TRL shall be at least 5-6)

    b) Research and development activities leading to products (hardware or software), mission related services, technology demonstrations or to generic technologies with potential for re-use (the start TRL shall be at least 2 and the target TRL below 5)

    c) Preparatory activities (e.g. studies, feasibility studies, user requirements or market surveys) to support national competitiveness in GMES and Galileo services as well as in ESA programmes (optional and mandatory).

    d) Education activities pertinent to the development of a space curriculum in universities or participation of university students in student satellites; awareness activities to raise the awareness of space.


    Esa pecs procedures and emits

    5. What to submit?What cost?

    From Cover Letter:

    3. Bidders are invited to submit Detailed Ideas quoting for a) flight hardware activities a price not higher than Euro 500.000, for b) research and development activities a price not higher than Euro 200.000, for c) preparatory activities a price not higher than Euro 100.000 and d) education and awareness activities a price not higher than Euro 40.000.

    The finally selected activities, after successful negotiation, will result in firm fixed price contracts 100% funded by ESA PECS budget. The Agency reserves the right to conduct a pre-award audit, if deemed necessary


    Esa pecs procedures and emits

    5. What to submit?Academia or Industry?

    From Cover Letter:

    5. -Type a) Flight hardware ideas must be led (prime contractor) by industry.

    -Type b) R&D ideas may be led by academia or research organizations only when the target TRL is 3 or below, exceptions will be accepted for Space Science instrument-related activities.

    -Type c) preparatory activities may be led by either industry or academia/research organizations depending on the context.

    -Type d) education and awareness activities must be led by a University.


    Esa pecs procedures and emits

    5. What to submit?What content?

    • From Cover Letter:

    • 8. The technical content of the Idea shall take into account the following:

    • The technical subject shall have potential for further use or development in:

    • - ESA activities or programmes or

    • - EU-ESA joint space activities

    • - addressing specific niche markets (no competitive products available elsewhere in Europe or when a second source would be an asset) or

    • - fostering the creation of strong and long-term relations between national firms and well-established European space firms.


    Esa pecs procedures and emits

    5. What to submit?What content?

    • From Cover Letter:

    • b) The technical subject shall take into account the priorities of the national space plan and policy and be complementary to current and future European space activities:

    • -Of special interest are ideas:

      • that could lead to cross-sectional products/services relevant to different types of satellite missions that are used in several types of satellite platforms, especially those relevant to Space Science;

      • that have the potential to bring long-term benefits to national space industry in its participation in space activities.

    • -The Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) of what is being pursued with the activity must also be considered and explicitly addressed in the Detailed Idea. In principle, the proposed activity should lead to a product/application/service with a national IPR; however, this requirement may be waived when there is a clear national benefit for example in the form of the establishment of a long-term supplier relationship.


    Esa pecs procedures and emits

    5. What to submit?What content?

    From Cover Letter:

    c) Bidders shall avoid duplication of ongoing and intended activities with ESA ongoing and intended programmes. Such duplication will lead to rejection of the Idea.
