1 Industry Day of the Euclid Spacecraft With the present announcement, the European Space Agency and Thales Alenia Space (Italy) inform the EITS Users (European Companies and Institutes) about a presentation of the Euclid mission, its procurement plan and related business opportunities. This Spacecraft Industry Day will take place on 15 January 2014 at: European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC) Keplerlaan AG Noordwijk (The Netherlands) 1. The Euclid ission Euclid is an optical/near-infrared survey mission designed to understand the origin of the accelerating expansion of the Universe. It will use cosmological probes to investigate the nature of dark energy, dark matter and gravity by tracking their observational signatures on the geometry of the Universe and on the cosmic history of structure formation. The mission will investigate the distance-redshift relationship and the evolution of the cosmic structures by measuring shapes and redshifts of distant galaxies by looking back on 10 billion years of cosmic history. It combines several techniques of investigation, also called cosmological probes, in a very large survey over the full extragalactic sky. Among these cosmological probes, two of them play a major role in the Euclid mission concept and the instrumental approach: the Weak Gravitational Lensing (WL) and Galaxy Clustering (GC) including the aryon Acoustic Oscillations (AO). The Euclid spacecraft consists of two main modules: The PL which consists of the PL structure, the telescope assembly, the optical elements (including the dichroic), the support structure, the Instruments (VIS and NISP), the thermal hardware and the re-focus system. the Euclid Service odule (SV) which comprises all the conventional spacecraft subsystems, the instruments warm electronics units, the sunshield and the solar array. The target orbit is a large-amplitude libration orbit around the night-side Lagrange point of the Sun-Earth system. The launch service shall be provided by the Soyuz 2-1b with a Fregat upper stage from Kourou.

2 2. Responsibility The Euclid mission has been approved by ESA and delegated bodies for a planned launch in 2020 in the frame of the Cosmic Vision plan. ESA has the overall responsibility for the Euclid mission design and implementation including the procurement of the launch service. The established Euclid Consortium is responsible for the development and delivery of the Instruments (VIS and NISP). The industrial Prime Contractor is responsible for the development, procurement, manufacturing, assembly, integration, test, verification and timely delivery of a fully integrated spacecraft capable of accommodating the Payload odule and fulfilling the mission objectives. The PL (Sub) Contractor is responsible for the development, procurement, manufacturing, assembly, integration, test, verification and timely delivery to the Prime Contractor of a fully integrated Payload odule and related items capable of accommodating the delivered Instruments and fulfilling the mission objectives. 3. The Industry Day Further to the Invitation To Tender (ITT) released by the European Space Agency (ESA) in December 2012, Thales Alenia Space Italy (TAS-I) has been appointed as Prime Contractor of the Euclid space segment for the Implementation phase (2/C/D/E1). Therefore TAS-I has been authorized to proceed with the competitive procurement process in order to complete the build-up of the spacecraft industrial team for spacecraft related items. This tendering process will be governed by ESA rules which are reported in the est practices for the selection of subcontractors by Prime Contractors in the frame of ESA s major procurements. This document can be downloaded from EITS (http://emits.sso.esa.int/ under Reference Documentation and Administrative Documents ). In advance to the announcement on EITS of the ITTs, the objective of this Industry Day is to present to the European industry the overall Euclid mission, the associated business opportunities, the bidding process and schedule for the build-up of the Euclid spacecraft industrial team. To participate please register on line at: no later than 13 January For logistic reasons the participation is limited to 200 people with a maximum of 3 participants per company. Page 2
