MPBUS - Kick-Off Meeting
13th-14th of May 2014
On 13th and 14th of May 2014, the MPBUS consortium had the Kick-Off meeting at Sotés, La Rioja, Spain. The four partners of the consortium, JMP Ingenieros, Najera Aerospace, Yamar Electronics and Centre Spatial de Liège, attended to the meeting which was a great success.
The MPBUS project requires a total investment of € 2 million, where 1.6 of which are financed by the European Commission, with an expected project duration of 27 months, starting on May 1st 2014.
The main goal of the project is to develop a Modular Power BUS for space vehicles. This new power bus architecture will combine ejectable batteries with the main bus through intelligent nodes developing intelligent bus management. Also the project will count with an improved data BUS over DC line technology allowing non critical communications through the power bus.
