Цитата: undefinedVega | June 1, 2020Preparations resume for Vega's upcoming mission with 53 small satellite passengersArianespace personnel are utilizing smart glasses during certain payload checkout activities for Flight VV16 at the Spaceport in French Guiana, enabling customers to remotely monitor operations performed on satellites that will be orbited this month by the Vega light-lift launcher.The launch campaign has resumed for Arianespace's next mission, which will be the proof-of-concept flight with the Vega launcher's "ride-share" configuration - known as the Small Spacecraft Mission Service (SSMS).Scheduled for the middle of this month from the Spaceport in French Guiana, it will loft 53 micro- and nanosatellites for the benefit of 21 customers, deploying these payloads into Sun-Synchronous orbit.For the mission, designated Flight VV16 in Arianespace's launcher family numbering system, Vega will carry seven microsatellites weighing from 15 kg. to 150 kg., along with 46 smaller CubeSats. These spacecraft are to serve various applications, including Earth observation, telecommunications, science, technology and education.The maiden flight for Europe's SSMSThe SSMS program, initiated by the European Space Agency (ESA) with the European Commission's contribution, will boost Arianespace's ability to offer ride-share solutions tailored for the flourishing small satellite market.Avio, the Italian company that is production prime contractor for Vega launch vehicles, also developed the SSMS ride-share concept. Design authority for the multi-payload dispenser system is SAB Aerospace, an independent Italian SME (small/medium enterprise).The SSMS dispenser is composed of modular components that are assembled as needed to serve as the interface with grouped payloads composed of microsatellites and CubeSats. Capable of accepting a full range of payload combinations, the SSMS configuration has been designed to be as responsive as possible in meeting the launch service market's needs for both institutional and commercial customers.Launch team members arrive from EuropeAssembly of Flight VV16's light-lift Vega launcher was performed during February on the Spaceport's SLV launch pad, but was followed in mid-March by an operations stand-down due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the need to fully implement sanitary protective measures.Avio members of the launch team for Arianespace Flight VV16 were flown from Rome to Cayenne aboard a chartered jetliner.With the decision to restart operational activities at the Spaceport, a team of some 70 people - led by engineers and technicians from Avio, and including personnel from other companies - was flown aboard a chartered jetliner from Europe to French Guiana.After arriving at Félix Eboué Airport near the capital city of Cayenne, the team members underwent a quarantine period before being authorized to work at the launch site."We are delighted to have resumed operations," said Thierry Wilmart, who heads the Missions & Customers Department at Arianespace. "Protective measures relating to COVID-19 have been taken throughout the launch site's facilities, and mission personnel have received instructions on respecting the sanitary guidelines."Wilmart noted that among the first activities was an evaluation of using smart glasses during payload preparation activities with several of the spacecraft passengers on Flight VV16. "The results are very positive, and this efficient means of being connected enables customers to remotely monitor operations conducted by Arianespace personnel on their satellites."The Vega launcher for Arianespace Flight VV16 is shown taking shape during integration activity at the Spaceport in February.

Цитата: undefinedVega | June 10, 2020Payload integration is completed for Arianespace's Vega rideshare mission with 53 small satellitesShown during the SSMS payload integration process for Arianespace's Flight VV16 is the ION CubeSat carrier - a platform that will deploy 12 CubeSats after being placed in orbit by the Vega launcher.The 53 satellite passengers for Arianespace's rideshare flight with its Vega light-lift launcher have been integrated at the Spaceport in French Guiana, marking a key milestone in preparation for the June 18 Proof of Concept mission with Europe's Small Spacecraft Mission Service (SSMS).During activity at the Spaceport, Vega's payload of seven microsatellites (weighing 15 kg. to 150 kg.), along with 46 smaller CubeSats, were installed on the SSMS platform - from which they will be deployed into Sun-synchronous orbits during the Vega mission.The SSMS hardware development was funded by the European Space Agency (ESA); the European Union contributed to the financing of this Proof of Concept flight. The combined European efforts will enhance Arianespace's response to the rideshare demand with solutions that are perfectly suited to the flourishing small satellite market.Europe's rideshare answer for small-satsThe SSMS provides a new dedicated European rideshare solution with Vega that is modular and capable of accommodating a full range of payload combinations. Vega's upcoming Proof of Concept mission - designated Flight VV16 in Arianespace's launcher family numbering system - was conceived in the context of ESA's LLL (Light satellite, Low-cost, Launch opportunity) initiative.The lift performance for Vega on Flight VV16 is approximately 1,310 kg.During the June 18 nighttime mission, Vega's liftoff and ascent will be powered by the launcher's solid-propellant first, second and third stages, followed by four ignitions of the AVUM bi-propellent upper stage.During Vega's flight sequence, the seven microsatellites will be deployed from 40 minutes into the mission through 52 minutes; followed by the CubeSats' phased release from 1 hour, 42 minutes to just under 1 hour, 44 minutes, 56 seconds.Italy's Avio is the production prime contractor for Vega, delivering the integrated launcher to Arianespace. Avio also developed the small satellite delivery system and the specific mission preparation process for Flight VV16, performing these tasks under ESA leadership. Design authority for the multi-payload dispenser system is SAB Aerospace s.r.o. of the Czech Republic.Larger versions of the photos above are available for downloading in the Gallery.
Цитата: undefinedСпутник МГУ и университета Гренобля запустят на европейской ракете01:02 12.06.2020МОСКВА, 12 июн - РИА Новости. Российско-французский научный спутник AMICal для изучения полярных сияний, созданный МГУ и университетом Гренобля, запустят 19 июля на европейской ракете Vega с космодрома Куру во Французской Гвиане, сообщила компания Arianespace.В материалах, размещенных на сайте компании, спутник AMICal приводится в перечне космических аппаратов, которые отправятся на орбиту на ракете Vega.В феврале 2019 года директор НИИ ядерной физики МГУ Михаил Панасюк рассказал РИА Новости, что спутник AMICal создан институтом совместно с университетом Гренобля для изучения полярных сияний. Тогда его планировалось запустить в космос летом 2019 года на ракете "Союз-2.1б" с космодрома Восточный вместе с метеорологическим спутником "Метеор-М" номер 2-2, но в итоге аппарат остался на Земле.Старт ракеты Vega с 53 спутниками намечался на 24 марта, но в середине марта компания Arianespace объявила, что подготовка к пускам ракет на космодроме Куру, в том числе российских "Союзов", приостановлена из-за распространения коронавируса. В конце апреля Arianespace сообщила, что подготовка к пускам возобновляется....
Цитата: undefinedVega | June 11, 2020Flight VV16: For the first Vega mission of 2020, Arianespace will perform the Small Spacecraft Mission Service Proof of Concept flightWith this mission, designated Flight VV16, Arianespace underscores its comprehensive range of innovative and competitive services to address the nano- and micro-satellite market sub-segment, serving both institutional and commercial needs. The creation of such a new service using the company's light-lift Vega led to the Small Spacecraft Mission Service (SSMS) project.The European Space Agency (ESA) funded the SSMS hardware development, and also contributed with the European Union to the funding of this "Proof of Concept" (PoC) flight.The combined European efforts will enhance Arianespace's response to the rideshare demand with solutions that are perfectly suited to the flourishing small satellite market.For its fifth mission in 2020, and the first Vega flight of the year, Arianespace will orbit 53 satellites on the Small Spacecraft Mission Service (SSMS) Proof of Concept (PoC) Flight.Flight VV16 will be performed from the Vega Launch Complex (SLV) in Kourou, French Guiana.VV16's mission, with 21 customers from 13 countries on board, will serve different types of applications: earth observation, telecommunications, science, technology/education, etc.By choosing Arianespace, all customers are entitled to the same level of quality and reliability. New customers such as laboratories, universities and start-ups are guaranteed the optimum conditions for the launch of their space projects.The SSMS rideshare concept is now integrated into Arianespace commercial offer, as a new service to address the small satellite market.This Arianespace's concept - with multiple small satellites from 1 kg. to 500 kg. being flown together on Vega with the objective of sharing the launch cost - has been developed with the support of ESA and Avio. The satellite dispenser is an ESA product developed by Avio under ESA leadership and it is produced by the Czech company, SAB Aerospace s.r.o. (CZ).
