How to get an ESABASE2 Licence

Step 1: Make sure that you meet the licence and system requirements which can be found below.
Step 2:
Please register for an ESABASE2 licence.
Step 3:
etamax will check your request and send the corresponding licence agreement and support contract.
Step 4:
Upon signature of the contract by the licencee, the software will be provided via a dedicated personal download link.

  • Generally, licenses can only be granted to companies and institutions coming from ESA member states.
  • Requests from companies and institutions residing in non ESA member states will have to be approved by ESA’s Industrial Policy Committee (IPC). etamax will forward your request to the IPC and will keep you informed about its status.
  • The conclusion of a Support Contract with etamax space is mandatory. The Support Contract Class depends on the intended use of ESABASE2, and on the type and size of the company or institution in case of entities from ESA member states. Entities from non member states will always have to conclude a Class A contract.
