On behalf of the UK Space Agency, the Centre for Earth Observation Instrumentation (CEOI) is inviting full proposals for the CEOI-10 Call for new and innovative EO space technology and instrumentation research projects. The Call will offer grant funding for projects addressing any of the themes:
|Theme||Funding and Duration||Eligible Activities|
|New and innovative ideas for EO technology development||
|Achieving higher TRL through airborne demonstration||Flagship grants of up to £500K, normally expected to be up to 18 months duration||
|Development of EO CubeSat flight model payloads for commercial service demonstration||Flagship grants of up to £500K, expected to be up to 18 months duration||
The CEOI CubeSat payload theme is linked to the In Orbit Demonstration programme recently announced by the Satellite Applications Catapult, with funding from Innovate UK. The intention is that, subject to final agreement by UK Space Agency and the Catapult, projects funded under this CEOI Call theme can develop payloads to the point where they will be eligible for a flight opportunity as a CubeSat in-orbit demonstration.
