More than thirty years of successful earth observation

Since the launch of its first Earth observation satellite in 1986, Airbus Defence and Space has successfully built and delivered almost 50 Earth observation satellite systems, accumulating over 30 years of in-orbit operation. Not a single one of these missions has ever failed in orbit.

Today, many of our satellites are in operation well beyond their originally scheduled lifetime.

At the same time, several new satellites as well as numerous payloads for customers around the globe are currently in construction in our facilities.
