Company Profile

AVIOSPACE is a space company located in Torino. The company was formed in 2004 and its network of partnership includes various SMEs in the field of Engineering and Manufacturing, several Universities, and Professionals.

Between January 2010 and March 2016 Aviospace has been an Airbus Defence and Space company, remaining however an Italian registered company with management and personnel entirely Italian.

Company core competences:

  1. System Engineering, Space Transportation, Future Launchers, and Space Exploration systems
  2. Thermal Control, Mechanical structures, Composite materials, and nano-structured material
  3. Avionics and On-board Software
  4. Propulsion, Multi-layer thermal insulation equipment (MLI), and Multi-physical simulation
  5. Human Life in Space and ISS operations

 

AVIOSPACE can benefit of a network of collaborations with small and medium companies with robust experience in high-quality manufacturing and niche technologies.

The scenario of collaborations is permanently in evolution: agreements across Italy and Europe are already established or are in final preparation in the sector of the automatic space systems for transportation and exploration with the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT), as well as with universities and other academic organizations (e.g. INSTM, Politecnico of Torino, La Sapienza) and manufacturers.

    Project: Multi Purpose Crew Vehicle – European Service Module for NASA’s Orion programme (MPCV-ESM)

    The activities are developed in the frame of collaboration between Aviospace and Airbus Defence and Space Bremen, it consists in a support for: Design and Manufacturing of mechanical parts of the propulsion systems and for Design and Analysis support for Primary and secondary structure interface for the Propulsion System

     

    Project: Capture and De-orbiting Technologies (CADET)

    The project developed and demonstrates, by the development of ground functional breadboards, key technologies for ADR, including the capture systems and a vision based navigation system, including target in-situ recognition and properties assessment

     

    Project: e.Deorbit phase A

    The e.Deorbit mission objective is to “Remove a single large ESA-owned Space Debris from the LEO protected zone”. The role of Aviospace in the project is the design of a tethered-net capture mechanism.

     

    Project: Activ-jet

    The project allowed Aviospace to develop a full process of materials functionalization by means of ink-jet printing, including: 1) Case-by-case nanoparticle-based ink design and formulation (e.g. both conductive and dielectric inks). 2) Printed pattern optimization and printing process set-up. 3) Wide range of possible substrates (e.g. ceramic, metallic, composites). 4) Post-printing thermal treatments. This technology involves the use of a stable and repeatable process, which makes use of less galvanic treatment and waste production. Moreover, mass savings and lower manufacturing costs, as well as the possibility to deal with 3D shapes, make it a competitive
    alternative to traditional manufacturing techniques.

     

    Project: Wireless Sensor Network

    This project focuses on sensing nodes development, powered by a vibration energy harvesting technologies, developed in the frame of the project. The nodes are conceived to be used on-ground, during storage, pre-launch phase, and during ascent/in orbit phases, e.g. Launcher staging, to allow communication between stages after separation. The communication system is composed by a multi-radio communication platform capable of using, in cognitive and opportunistic mode, heterogeneous wireless communication technologies for monitoring and control of complex systems for industrial and aerospace markets. The communication platform consists of multi-radio nodes able to cooperate for building up an intelligence network, that promotes the opportunistic use of wireless technologies with complementary characteristics in terms of data rate, latency, robustness to radio channel conditions, power consumption, and ability to self-organization in networks.
