SpaceDataHighway - Start of Service

Airbus Defence and Space starts the initial service of its SpaceDataHighway. This represents a step change in the speed of space communications. Ultra-broadband laser communications and the geostationary orbit of the relay satellites will make data latency a thing of the past.Through laser communication, the SpaceDataHighway can transfer high-volume data from Earth observation satellites, airborne platforms, or even from the International Space Station at a data rate of 1.8 Gbps and can transmit up to 40 terabytes per day.;_LINE_TERMINATEDBe ready to enter the SpaceDataHighway the 28th of November 2016 #SpaceDataHighway;_LINE_TERMINATEDMore informations here : http://bit.ly/2fvwttP

Launch of MEASAT-3b: 61st success in a row for Ariane 5

Flight 218 is the 75th Ariane 5 launch and the fourth in 2014. For the 61st consecutive time, Ariane 5 has successfully launched from Kourou, French Guiana, once again confirming the reliability of the European launcher developed and built by prime contractor Airbus Defence and Space, the world’s second largest space company. For this launch, the company was also the prime contractor for MEASAT-3b, the largest satellite ever built for Malaysian-based Asian operator MEASAT. The Ariane 5 ECA (Cryogenic Evolution type A), the most powerful version in the ARIANE 5 range, used for this flight.transported 10,088 kg into geostationary transfer orbit, 9,167 kg of which is made up by the two satellites MEASAT-3b and OPTUS-10 and the rest by Sylda, Airbus Defence and Space’s dual launch system, and by adapter structures for the satellites.

What we do for Ariane 5, ATV and the ISS

Airbus Defence and Space has the overall industrial responsibility for both the ATV and the European launcher Ariane 5. Airbus Defence and Space is the main contractor for the Ariane 5 launcher, the reliable European “workhorse” that has been developed and constructed to fulfil a range of heavy-load missions. In the customised ES version, the launcher will propel the ATV into circular orbit at an altitude of 260 km and with a speed of 7,600 m/s. We build also different experiment materials and equipment will also be delivered to the ISS. For ATV-5, during the rendezvous with ISS, and a few days prior, during a dedicated ISS fly-under, ATV will activate the Liris demonstrator. Liris will acquire in-flight data necessary to prove new rendezvous technologies in particular with non-cooperative targets such as space debris. Airbus Defence and Space developed the apparatus, which is based on the principle of electromagnetic levitation technology, as part of a series of contracts from ESA and the German Aerospace Centre (DLR).
