SAT4M2M’s partnership idea “TDSV – TELDASAT Technology Demonstration and System Verification by Use of the International Space Station ISS” has been selected for consultation by an ESA expert panel, out of 60 ideas received in response to an ESA published ESA CFI. Subsequent to the first consultation meeting, ESA and SAT4M2M are assessing the possibility to initiate a pilot phase in 2016 for reviewing the ISS implementation feasibility of the partnership idea and for jointly maturing the envisaged partnership approach.
