Helping you bringing your mission up!


Without Airbus technology, the Ariane launcher cannot leave the ground. We develop launcher electronics and designed the Interstage 1/2 of the Vega rocket and the engine thrust frame for Ariane 5, and we are also involved in the future Ariane 6 launcher. From the design and development to testing and production in series, we possess the knowledge needed.

Our In orbit heritage:


Airbus delivers key avionic equipment for European launchers and is already preparing the technologies foreseeably needed by the next generation of launchers.

A strong experience that can be measured by:

  • More than 25 years of experience in Launcher Electronics
  • High performance for value
  • Integration, modularity and flexibility
  • High volume manufacturing capability
  • More than 500 FMs delivered
