17 October 2013

The Italian Space Agency (ASI) is currently investigating the best way forward to exploit the capabilities of the civil transmission capacity on board of the Athena-Fidus satellite, that will be launched first quarter 2014, and is expected to be operational second quarter 2014.

ASI is issuing this call for interest (CFI) to gather indications of interest from private satcom service providers, interested to exploit the above-mentioned capacity proposing to ASI suitable business models.

This CFI in no manner obligates ASI to pursue any contractual relationship with an entity that responds to this CFI.

ASI further reserve the right to cancel this CFI at any time, if deemed to be in the best interest of ASI, and not to proceed with any further formaI action, e.g. issuing a Request for Proposal.

Submitting an Expression of Interest (EOI) as an answer to this CFI does not constitute a bid. The answerer will not be bound by anything contained in his EOI submission.

The information in the EOI will be used solely for ASI to complete its feasibility.

All the proposals can be sent to the following address: enrico.russo@asi.it
