ЦитатаApril 14 • Soyuz • Sentinel 1BLaunch window: 2102:23 GMT (5:02:23 p.m. EDT) Launch site: ELS, Sinnamary, French Guiana
ЦитатаSentinel 1A, 1B, 1C, 1D Sentinel 1 [ESA] The Sentinel-1 satellite, which is scheduled to be launched in 2011, is part of the GMES program - Global Monitoring for Environment and Security - a set of Earth observation missions co-funded by ESA and the European Commission. GMES represents the European answer to the ever-increasing requirements of environmental control, and thus provides an important contribution to environmental policies at a global level.As prime contractor, Thales Alenia Space Italy is responsible for the design, development and integration of the satellite that will carry a C-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR). The radar will be based on Thales Alenia Space's key technologies such as the Transmit-Receive modules inside the active antenna.Based on a Prima platform, developed by Thales Alenia Space for the Italian Space Agency, Sentinel-1 will weigh 2,280 kilograms at launch and will look at the Earth in swaths up to 700 kilometers with a ground resolution of between 5 and 25 meters according to the sel ected operative mode.The ESA Sentinel suite is composed of five satellites series. Sentinel-1 will ensure the continuity with ERS and Envisat C-band SAR data. Sentinel-2 and Sentinel-3 satellites are scheduled for launch in 2012 and will support land and ocean monitoring. Sentinel-4 and 5 will be dedicated to meteorology and climatology through atmospheric chemistry study.In December 2009 ESA signed a contract for a duplicate second spacecraft called Sentinel-1B to be launched in 2016. In December 2015, a contract for two more satellites, Sentinel 1C and 1D, was signed. These will be launched fr om 2021 onwards.Nation: EuropeType / Application: Earth Observing (Radar)Operator: ESAContractors: Thales Alenia SpaceEquipment: C-band synthetic aperture radar (SAR)Configuration: Prima BusPropulsion: Power: 2 deployable solar arrays, batteriesLifetime: 7.25 yearsMass: 2280 kg
ЦитатаMICROSCOPE MICROSCOPE [CNES] The MICROSCOPE (Microsatellite à traînée Compensée pour l'Observation du Principe d'Equivalence) mission has been sel ected at end of 1999 by the French space agency Cnes for a launch scheduled for late 2004. The MICROSCOPE satellite developed by CNES within its new line of product, weights 140 kg and is compatible with a low cost launch like ASAP Ariane-5.The scientific objective of the mission is the test of the Equivalence Principle (EP) up to an accuracy of 10-15 with its well known manifestation, the universality of free fall. This principle, at the origin of general relativity, is only consolidated by experimental results and presently with an accuracy of several 10-13.Some involved technologies shall prepare the participation of european team to the future more ambious EP experiment in space: STEP mission.The satellite is rather compact with no deployable solar panel to insure a high rigidity: any mass motion on board is avoided and no momentum wheel is used during the experiment operation. A peculiar attention is paid for the thermo-elastic behaviour of the satellite, the structure of which is realised with aluminium honeycomb and plates. The three solar panels will be mounted on three faces of the bus. High efficiency AsGa solar cells will be used in order to obtain available power of 80 W, equally shared for the payload, the electrical propulsion and the satellite module. Moreover, to limit magnetic disturbances due to test-mass susceptibility, the magnetic moments on-board the satellite shall be limited and steady, variations less than 0.1 Am² in the EP frequency vicinity and at 30 cm fr om the instrument are specified. This concerns particularly the magneto-torquers or the batteries.

ЦитатаMar 11, 2016Welcome to French Guiana: two passengers arrive for Arianespace's next Soyuz flightSentinel-1B - encased in its protective shipping container - is unloaded fr om the chartered Antonov An-124 cargo jetliner following its arrival at Félix Eboué Airport in French Guiana (left photo); while at right, Microscope has been removed from the 747 cargo jetliner and is being readied for transfer by road to the Spaceport.Payload preparation activity for Arianespace's Soyuz Flight VS14 is underway in French Guiana following the separate deliveries of this upcoming mission's primary satellite passenger - Sentinel-1B - and the first of three additional payloads that will join it, the Microscope spacecraft. Sentinel-1B was transported by a chartered An-124 cargo jetliner that landed this week at Félix Eboué International Airport near French Guiana's capital city, Cayenne - then was unloaded for transfer by road to the Spaceport, wh ere the satellite will be readied for its April 22 launch.Developed in an industrial consortium led by prime contractor Thales Alenia Space, Sentinel-1B will be orbited for the European Commission's Copernicus Earth observation program - the goal of which is to ensure European independence in the acquisition and management of environmental data concerning the planet, as well as to support local authorities and policy-makers.After launch, Sentinel-1B will join its "sister" satellite - Sentinel-1A, which was lofted on a 2014 Arianespace Soyuz mission - in orbit to provide more views of Earth for the Copernicus environmental monitoring effort. Both spacecraft carry an advanced radar for all-weather, day-and-night coverage of Earth's surface, and working together, will image the entire planet every six days. Arianespace also orbited the Sentinel-2A satellite on a successful Vega mission performed in 2015.The Microscope passenger for launch on Soyuz Flight VS14 was delivered to French Guiana this week by a 747 cargo jetliner, arriving two days after Sentinel-1B - with a subsequent transfer by road bringing it to the Spaceport for payload processing as well.Microscope is a 300-kg. satellite built around the CNES French space agency's Myriade bus, and will be released to a sun-synchronous circular orbit on the April 22 launch - from which it will test the universality of free fall in space, with an accuracy 100-times greater than tests performed on Earth.CNES' Microscope is one of three additional payloads to be lofted on Flight VS14, and will be joined by Norway's first scientific satellite, NORSAT-1; and a cubesat that is part of the European Space Agency's Fly Your Satellite! educational program.This upcoming medium-lift Soyuz mission will be the third as part of Arianespace's busy launch manifest for 2016. It follows two separate flights this year that used heavy-lift Ariane 5 vehicles to orbit Intelsat 29e on January 27; and EUTELSAT 65 West A on March 9.

ЦитатаMar 17, 2016 Payload preparations advance for Arianespace's Soyuz mission with Sentinel-1BThe next spacecraft to be orbited for Europe's Copernicus Earth observation program - Sentinel-1B - is now undergoing pre-launch checkout at the Spaceport, readying it for the April 22 liftoff on Arianespace's upcoming Soyuz flight fr om French Guiana.Preparation activity is underway with Soyuz Flight VS14's Sentinel-1B passenger at the Spaceport's S5 facility in French Guiana. Sentinel-1B is being put through its paces inside the Spaceport's S5 payload preparation facility, wh ere the radar satellite was transported following this month's arrival in French Guiana aboard an An-124 cargo jetliner. During initial preparations, the spacecraft was removed from its shipping container in clean room conditions, then positioned for the start-up of processing.Developed in an industrial consortium led by prime contractor Thales Alenia Space, Sentinel-1B is to deliver essential data for Copernicus - which is a European Space Agency (ESA) program in partnership with the European Commission. Copernicus' goal is to ensure European independence in the acquisition and management of environmental data concerning the planet, as well as to support local authorities and policy-makers.After launch, Sentinel-1B will join its Sentinel-1A "sister" satellite in Sun-synchronous, near-polar, circular orbit. Both spacecraft carry an advanced radar for all-weather, day-and-night coverage of Earth's surface, and working together, will image the entire planet every six days. Sentinel-1A was launched on a 2014 Arianespace Soyuz mission.The April 22 flight is designated VS14 in Arianespace's numbering system, and will be the company's third mission performed from Europe's Spaceport in 2016 to date - following successful Ariane 5 launches on January 27 (carrying Intelsat 29e) and March 9 (with EUTELSAT 65 West A).Three additional passengers are to be lofted along with Sentinel-1B on Soyuz Flight VS14: the CNES French space agency's Microscope spacecraft; the first scientific satellite for Norway, NORSAT-1; and a cubesat payload that will be orbited as part of ESA's Fly Your Satellite! educational program.

ЦитатаMar 21, 2016 A cornerstone of modern physics is to be studied by the Microscope payload on Arianespace's next Soyuz missionPre-launch preparation activity is underway in French Guiana with the Microscope satellite, which will be orbited from the Spaceport in April aboard an Arianespace Soyuz launcher to validate a cornerstone of modern physics: the equivalence principle.The Microscope satellite is readied for its pre-launch checkout in the Spaceport's S5 payload preparation facility. While in Earth orbit, Microscope will provide data on the relative motion of two bodies in permanent free-fall, studying their movement during several months instead of just seconds possible with ground-based testing.By furthering knowledge of the equivalence principle - which postulates the equality between gravitational mass and inertial mass - the results from Microscope could open new vistas for theories of gravitation.Microscope is the French acronym for: Microsatellite à traînée compensée pour l'observation du principe d'equivalence (Microsatellite with drag compensation for observation of the equivalence principle). This 300-kg. payload is based on the French CNES space agency's Myriade series of microsatellites, and is equipped with cold-gas microthrusters capable of compensating for the smallest trajectory perturbations which might otherwise distort the results.CNES is in charge of developing the full Microscope system and building the satellite. It is providing 90 percent of funding for this mission, serving as prime contractor in charge of the satellite bus development, satellite integration and testing prior to launch. The space agency also is responsible for construction and operation of the mission control center. Arianespace keeps pace with its goal of 12 launches in 2016 During Arianespace's April 22 launch of Soyuz, Microscope will be orbited along with the Sentinel-1B observation radar platform for Europe's Copernicus Earth observation program, as well as two very small cubesat passengers: Norway's first scientific satellite, NORSAT-1; and a payload from ESA's "Fly Your Satellite!" educational program.The upcoming Soyuz mission is designated Flight VS14 in Arianespace's launcher family numbering system, and will be the company's third performed from Europe's Spaceport to date in 2016 - following successful Ariane 5 launches on January 27 (carrying Intelsat 29e) and March 9 (with EUTELSAT 65 West A).Arianespace is targeting as many as 12 flights in 2016 with its complete launcher family, composed of the heavy-lift Ariane 5, medium-lift Soyuz and lightweight Vega.
