Bartolomeo enables the hosting of external payloads in low-Earth orbit, on-board the International Space Station ISS.

Application areas include (but are not limited to) Earth observation, robotics, material science or astrophysics. Payloads can be hosted for institutional and private organisations alike. Operated aboard the ISS in low-Earth-orbit (altitude: ~400 km), the Bartolomeo platform offers the ISS’ only unobstructed view both towards planet Earth and into outer space.

Easy Access to the ISS

Named after the younger brother of Christopher Columbus, the Bartolomeo platform is attached to the European Columbus Module and operated by Airbus Defence and Space.

With its All-in-One Mission Service, the company provides all mission-related elements and can even assist when it comes to building the actual payload.

Operating a space mission on the Bartolomeo platform is a highly cost and time-efficient way of bringing a payload into space. Customers benefit from Airbus Defence and Space’s 10-year experience in integrating and operating payloads on the ISS: Customers fully concentrate on their individual Space mission, without needing to develop a complex space system or a deep understanding of the ISS.

Suitable for a Wide Array of LEO Missions
