Micro and Nano Technologies (MNT) have a large potential in space applications like communication, navigation, Earth observation and scientific mission by: Fostering new types of scientific missions and instruments Reducing cost, size, mass and time from mission conception to launch Increasing performances, reliability and redundancy Today MNT have proven themselves in Earth-based applications by showing outstanding performance and reliability figures and there are now several ESA projects and scientific missions enabled through the use of MNT. With this 9th MNT round table, the European Space Agency (ESA) is promoting the use of state-of-the-art technologies for space applications and reporting on these experiences. About 200 experts participated in each of the previous round-tables. The audience is expected to include members from national delegations, space agencies, space and MNT industries, research centres and universities in multiple roles as users and as providers of MNT-based equipment and systems. OBJECTIVES The main objectives of this 9th Round-Table on Micro and Nano Technologies for space are: Discussing recent progress in MNT Discussing progress in packaging and integration Discussing MNT reliability Presenting running space qualification activities Discussing the standardisation of MNT evaluation and qualification methodologies Discussing the availability of commercial micro-systems Encouraging space spin-in and spin-out activities Consolidating and discussing ESA MNT roadmaps The Round-Table will be the opportunity to consolidate the MNT landscape and to discuss on the additional efforts needed to concretise MNT access to space programs. TOPICS This Round Table will address Micro and Nano Technologies including: Micro Electromechanical Systems (MEMS), Micro-Systems Technology (MST) and Nanotechnologies. Topics particularly encouraged for MEMS and MST, are: Flight qualification procedures and outcomes Micro-packaging and system integration Test, reliability and evaluation for space Technology transfer to and from space industry Flight feedback from in-orbit demonstration (IOD) Usage in space projects Technology roadmaps Since a few years, the interest of the space sector for nanotechnologies increased, confirmed by the growing number of papers submission and dedicated session of the last ESA round tables. Topics of particular interest in the field of Nanotechnologies are: Nanomaterials test centres Improvement of material intrinsic properties with nanomaterials Characterisation of nanomaterials and nano-objects Nanotechnologies for microelectronics and microwave devices Nanotechnologies for power applications Lausanne, Switzerland
