ESA doesn’t do routine. Nowhere is this more true than for Science, where the goal of each new mission is to observe the Universe in novel ways. New technologies are required to make such missions possible, many years in advance. ESA’s Directorate of Technical and Quality Management is tasked with anticipating such needs, to make the right technology available at the right time, and solve any technical problems arising during development.
