ESA's Data Systems Division of TEC is constantly providing technical support in the field of avionics and data management architecture to the CDF.

The Concurrent Design Facility (CDF) is a state-of-the-art facility equipped with a network of computers, multimedia devices and software tools, which allows a team of experts from several disciplines to apply the concurrent engineering method to the design of future space missions. It facilitates a fast and effective interaction of all disciplines involved, ensuring consistent and high-quality results in a much shorter time.

Recent CDF activities
Here is a list of the recent CDF activities supported by our team of engineers:


AIM - Asteroid Impact Mission


IXV EVO - Assessment of Intermediate eXperimental Vehicle Evolution

LOFT - Large Observatory for X-Ray Timing

VAC - Post ATV Derivative Concept

ECHO - ExoPlanet Observatory
