Our Vision: Making Space a Universe of Possibilities for Everyone

At Airbus, our purpose is to improve life on Earth and beyond through our cutting-edge Space technologies. With every technological breakthrough we bring people closer together, we navigate new frontiers and we discover new and unexplored destinations. And we don't just take innovations to Space, our Space solutions help solve global challenges on Earth.

But we don’t stop there: We envisage a future where our human economy expands beyond Earth’s orbit and everyone benefits from the value of Space. Explore, Discover, Connect: Together, we can make tomorrow more than just another day.

Whether mapping every star in our galaxy or looking back at planet Earth, Airbus has been helping to answer big questions from space for more than 50 years. Supplying reliable systems that range from electronic components to full telecommunications relay platforms, scientific satellites and manned spacecraft, Airbus provides solutions for customers around the globe. ArianeGroup, a joint venture with Safran, is the prime contractor for Europe’s record-breaking Ariane launcher.
