Tour of the Tito Plant of Te-S Teleinformatica e Sistemi September 30, 2014 You are invited to attend a free tour of the TeS-Teleinformatica e Sistemi plant located in Tito Scalo (Potenza) on September 30, the day before the start of the Conference. The tour will showcase current plant activities, and in particular: PSC (Power Splitter Combiner) and PJB (Power Junction Box) (SAOCOM program) integration and test, Janus Airborne Dual Band Antenna production and test, and Alphasat Ground Station. The schedule for the tour is as follows: 13:30 - Departure from the Conference hotel. 15:30 - Arrival at TeS Tito Plant 15:30 - Welcome and Cocktail 16:30 - Visit of the Plant 18:00 - Departure from TeS Tito Plant 19:30 - Arrival at the Conference hotel. Please be aware that the tour has a limited number of participants. Thus reservations are required and will be accepted on a “first-come first-served” basis by applying to [email protected] on or before August 1, 2014. Company Information TeS-Teleinformatica e Sistemi, founded in 1998 and controlled by Space Engineering, today part of Airbus Defence and Space (Airbus Group), is specialized in designing prototyping production and in testing telecommunication equipment. TeS built its plant in Tito Scalo (PZ) in 2005, providing it with all the assembling and space measurement facilities (clean room, anechoic chamber, Thermal Vacuum chamber, climatic chamber, etc.), necessary to complete the life cycle of the Group’s products. TeS Tito Plant main mission • Production & Integration of electronic equipment with emphasis on communications and space (antenna systems, repeaters, ground terminal equipment, etc.) • Validation & qualification of components for space applications (antennas, repeaters, baseband equipment) • Projects with high innovation contents (R&D Projects on contract to research funding institutions, e.g. ESA, EC, Italian Space Agency). • TeS Tito Plant Main Facilities Tito Plant has an internal surface of 4500sqm with laboratories, warehouse and offices. The added value provided by TeS Tito plant is strongly linked to the technological facilities and to the highly skilled resident staff. Recent success stories at TeS Tito Plant include the Alphasat Technology Demonstration Payload #5 (TDP#5). It is a payload embarked on the ESA Alphasat satellite, which, in conjunction with a suitable ground infrastructure (Mission Segment), allows to carry out communications experiments (Propagation Impairment Mitigation Techniques – PIMT) at 40/50 GHz (Q/V-band), along with propagation experiments at both 20 GHz (Ka-band) and 40 GHz (Q-band). The payloads for such experiments, developed by Space Engineering (SE) in co-contractorship with Thales Alenia Space Italia on behalf of ESA, were integrated and tested in TeS Tito plant. In addition, in 2011 ASI assigned a contract to Space Engineering for the phase B2/C/D of the TDP#5 Mission Segment (MS). Scope of this contract is the provision of a "turn-key" mission segment consisting in two Tx/Rx Ground Stations (GS) and in three control centres, together with the equipment necessary to conduct experiments related to communications and propagation. One of the two GSs is located in TeS Tito plant and the other in Spino D’Adda. In the plant the technological facilities are: • • • • • • • Alphasat Ground Segment Antenna (GS-1) Laboratories: Radio Frequency, Digital and Mechanical (including instruments for precision mechanical measurements & alignment); RF Test Range (Anechoic chamber from 500MHz up to 50GHz, 12 x 8 x 7 m) Satellite Attitude Simulator; Thermal-Vacuum Chamber (Vacuum up to 5x10-7 mbar, thermal range -170°C ÷ +150°C) Clean room ISO8 (100.000 class, about 190 sqm of dimension, including air locks); Climatic Chamber (Hot/Cold and Humidity test) Recent and/or in progress work Validation & test of antenna systems; COSMO Sky-Med Calibrators, AIT/AIV Campaign of Alphasat TDP#5 Payload, Integration & test of secure modem (YAHSAT, Koreasat, SICRAL), LHTA Production & Maintenance, Integration & test of Telesal Ambulances, Network Control Centre of Telesal System, Ground Segment of Alphasat TDP#5 , R&D (APRI, APICE,SPIRIT, etc.), PSC (Power Splitter Combiner) and PJB (Power Junction Box) for SAR payload of SAOCOM satellites (Argentinian Space Agency CONAE), MWI.
