Arianespace to orbit Spanish SEOSat/Ingenio Earth observation satellite

Arianespace and the European Space Agency (ESA/Earth Observation Programs directorate) today announced the signature of a launch services contract with a Vega launcher for SEOSat (Spanish Earth Observation SATellite) for Spain's Center for Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI - Centro para el Desarrollo Technologico Industrial).

SEOSat/Ingenio is a high-resolution optical imaging mission of Spain - the flagship mission of the Spanish Space Strategic Plan.

It will be launched along with the French CNES space agency's TARANIS satellite aboard a Vega launch vehicle in the first semester of 2020 from the Guiana Space Center, Europe's Spaceport in French Guiana (South America).

The satellite will have a mass at liftoff of approximately 840 kg.and will be placed in Sun-synchronous orbit at an altitude of about 670 km.

The SEOSat/Ingenio mission is devoted to providing high resolution multispectral land optical images to different Spanish civil, institutional and government users, and potentially to other European users in the framework of the European Copernicus program and GEOSS (Global Earth Observation System of Systems).

The overall mission objective is to provide information for applications in cartography, land use, urban management, water management, environmental monitoring, risk management and security.

CDTI is funding the mission and has responsibility for programmatic aspects of the program. The project development managed by ESA as support to a national mission in the context of the European Earth Observation Architecture. A launch services procurement assistance agreement to this effect was signed between ESA and CDTI in Madrid on May 17, 2019. Within the agreement, CDTI has entrusted ESA with the technical and contractual management of the industrial activities, thus being in charge of the procurement of the SEOSat/Ingenio system's space and ground segments.

The SEOSat/Ingenio spacecraft is the first built by an industrial consortium of the Spanish space sector companies led by Airbus Defense and Space/Spain.

Following the contract signature, Josef Aschbacher, Director of Earth Observation Programmes at ESA said: "I am very happy to sign the agreement with CDTI today and the contract with Arianespace. This marks a strong cooperation with Spain in the field of Earth Observation with the ESA support to the development of the SEOSat national mission. We look forward to launch early next year and to complement with SEOSat/Ingenio the European Earth Observation Architecture and to add another mission to the Third Party Missions portfolio of ESA."

Stéphane Israël, Chief Executive Officer of Arianespace, added: "We are delighted Arianespace has been chosen by ESA to launch SEOSat/Ingenio, reinforcing our relationship with Spain - a country that also is very involved in European launcher programs. Orbiting this satellite for the benefit of Spanish and European citizens - on a Vega launcher together with another institutional mission for France - reasserts Arianespace primary mission: ensuring European independent access to space."

Цитата: undefinedSEOSAT-Ingenio ready for shipment to Kourou
15/06/2020

The Spanish high-resolution land imaging mission, known as SEOSAT-Ingenio, is currently at the premises of Airbus in Madrid, Spain and is ready to be packed and shipped to Europe's Spaceport in French Guiana - following the mission's latest successful tests and final technical review. This is another significant milestone in preparing the Earth observation satellite's ride into orbit on a Vega rocket.

Thanks to the satellite era, we are better placed to understand and monitor the complexities of our planet, particularly with respect to global change. As the use of data from Earth observation satellites continues to be more commonplace, so does the demand for increasingly detailed imagery.

High-resolution images of Earth are now deemed an essential commodity at the core of a wide range of scientific, commercial and governmental applications. By imaging Earth's land in remarkable detail, SEOSAT-Ingenio is ready to serve the new digital age.


SEOSAT-Ingenio

SEOSAT-Ingenio is based on a state-of-the-art dual camera that can image Earth's land with a resolution of 2.5 m. The mission will benefit society through numerous disciplines such as cartography, agriculture, forestry, urban development and water management.

With its capability to look sideways, it can access any point on Earth within three days, and will be used to help map natural disasters such as floods, wildfires and earthquakes - as well as help with one of humankind's biggest challenges: understanding and responding to climate change.

SEOSAT-Ingenio's latest tests, which took place virtually owing to COVID-19 restrictions, were deemed successful by teams working together across Europe. These recent assessments come after the successful technical review was completed in April.


SEOSAT in the cleanroom

While SEOSAT-Ingenio is a Spanish national mission, it is the result of an international collaborative effort. The mission is funded by Spain's Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI) of the Ministry of Science and Innovation, but developed by ESA in the context of the European Earth Observation Architecture.

Other partners include Airbus Defence and Space, being the prime industrial contractor of the satellite, and SENER & INDRA, responsible for the payload and ground segment.

Information from SEOSAT-Ingenio will be used by different Spanish civil, institutional and government users, but also potentially by other European users in the framework of the European Union's Copernicus programme and the Group on Earth Observations' Global Earth Observation System of Systems.

The target launch date is currently set for 24 August 2020 - to be confirmed by Arianespace.

Earth-imaging and scientific payloads arrive for Arianespace's Vega mission in November

Spain's SEOSAT-Ingenio (at left) is readied for the startup of its checkout process in the Spaceport's S5 payload preparation facility, which will begin after the external wrapping is removed. In parallel, the French Taranis scientific satellite (at right) undergoes an initial inspection in another of the S5 clean room areas.

Arianespace's next Vega mission will orbit passengers with two very different perspectives: Spain's SEOSAT-Ingenio high-resolution optical imaging platform, which is to monitor the Earth for civil and military uses; and the French Taranis microsatellite, to observe the mysterious atmospheric emissions that occur above thunderstorms.

Both spacecraft arrived in French Guiana last week, delivered by a chartered Antonov AN-124 cargo jetliner that touched down at Cayenne's Félix Eboué Airport. They were transported by road to the Spaceport, where processing is now underway in separate clean room areas of the S5 payload processing facility.

The Vega's mission with these satellites is designated Flight VV17 in Arianespace's launcher family numbering system, and is scheduled for liftoff in November.

SEOSAT-Ingenio: Spain's optical observation satellite

Arianespace's launch services contract for the SEOSAT-Ingenio satellite was signed with the European Space Agency (ESA) for Spain's CDTI (Center for Development of Industrial Technology). SEOSAT-Ingenio is the first Spanish satellite with optical technology, developed primarily by the Spanish space industry with Airbus in Spain as the prime contractor. Its liftoff mass will be approximately 840 kg.

High-resolution imagery from SEOSAT-Ingenio is to be used for civil and military purposes in such applications as security, land management, natural resources, border surveillance, agriculture and natural disaster crisis management. This strategic satellite for Spain is owned by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Technology, with the CDTI leading the spacecraft project by delegation and also assuming its cost. 

Taranis: Studying the phenomena above thunderstorms

The other passenger on Vega Flight VV17 is Taranis, named after the god of thunder in Celtic mythology, and the satellite's designation is an acronym of: Tool for the Analysis of RAdiation from lightNIng and Sprites. Taranis will study impulsive transfers of energy between the Earth's atmosphere and the space environment that occur above thunderstorms.

Funded by the French CNES space agency, this satellite will have a liftoff mass in the 200-kg. category and is to provide data on the transient luminous events that have been observed in the past 30 years, particularly such phenomena that are called sprites, jets and elves.

Both SEOSAT-Ingenio and Taranis will operate in similar orbits at an altitude of approximately 700 km. In ride-sharing this launch on Arianespace's light-lift Vega launcher, the two spacecraft will be deployed by a VESPA payload dispenser, produced by Airbus in Spain for Avio.

Preparations are well on track for the upcoming launch of SEOSAT-Ingenio - the Spanish high-resolution land imaging mission - scheduled to launch from Europe's spaceport in French Guiana next month.

SEOSAT-Ingenio arrived safely at the Guiana Space Centre on 25 September, where it was then transferred to the Payload Preparation Complex along with its co-passenger, the CNES French space agency's Taranis satellite.

Since then, the dedicated team has successfully completed a series of inspections and health checks that confirmed the satellite is in good shape. This included several 'leak tests' where the propulsion module's tank, valves and thrusters were tested at the 'maximum expected over pressure' to verify their performances.

Since then, SEOSAT-Ingenio was transported to the Filling Hall where it was loaded with around 80 kg of hydrazine fuel and was pressurised with helium gas to avoid the sloshing of the liquid during launch and flight. The satellite was then switched on - confirming the successful completion of its fuelling.

Fuelling of SEOSAT-Ingenio


ESA's Gianfranco Spinella commented, "The execution of the fuelling and pressurisation operations were concluded with a successful switch-on of the spacecraft, which is yet another major milestone for this project. The amount of loaded propellant will cover SEOSAT-Ingenio for its 10 years of operations, three years more than its nominal mission lifetime.

"These operations have completed the SEOSAT-Ingenio autonomous preparation phase. We are now looking forward to initiate the next phase of combined operations with the launcher next week."

SEOSAT-Ingenio carries a state-of-the-art dual camera that has the ability to image Earth's land with a resolution of 2.5 m. By imaging Earth's land in remarkable detail, the satellite will benefit society through various disciplines including cartography, monitoring land use, urban development and water management.

Arianespace to launch Earth observation and scientific satellites with Vega



On November 16, Arianespace will carry out its seventh launch of the year, and second with Vega, to orbit two satellites, one for the European Space Agency (ESA) and Spain, and one for the French space agency CNES.

ESA's SEOSAT-Ingenio is an Earth observation satellite designed to foster the development of remote sensing applications in Spain. CNES's TARANIS is the first satellite designed to observe electromagnetic phenomena in the atmosphere above thunderstorms.

Arianespace is teaming up with CNES, ESA and Avio to introduce an innovative pre-launch online event on this mission, open to all on the LaunchXP platform.

For its seventh launch of the year, and the 17th by Vega since its introduction in 2012, Arianespace will orbit two satellites: SEOSAT-Ingenio for ESA, on behalf of the Spanish Center for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI), and TARANIS for French space agency CNES (Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales). The launch is scheduled for November 16, 2020 at 10:52 pm local time in Kourou, French Guiana, and the mission will last one hour and 42 minutes.

A flagship mission in Spain's strategic space plan, SEOSAT-Ingenio is a high-resolution optical imaging satellite. It will provide high-resolution multispectral and optical images for applications such as mapping, land use, environmental monitoring, risk management and security.

Named after the god of thunder in Celtic mythology, TARANIS (which also stands for "Tool for the Analysis of RAdiation from lightNIng and Sprites") is the first satellite designed to observe luminous, radiative and electromagnetic phenomena occurring at altitudes of 20 to 100 kilometers above thunderstorms. In particular, TARANIS will study the correlation between transient luminous events (TLE) and terrestrial gamma-ray flashes (TGF).

For this mission, Arianespace is teaming up with CNES, ESA and Avio to offer a pre-launch online event using the LaunchXP platform. The platform will open at 8:00 am (local time in Paris and Madrid) on November 16, providing access to a broad array of information on this mission, the Vega launcher and the two satellites involved.

Vega, a new-generation light launcher built by Avio as industrial prime contractor, is perfectly suited to the requirements of both the government and commercial markets. Its performance and versatility allow Arianespace to offer the best possible launch solution for small and medium-size payloads sent into a variety of orbits - including Sun-synchronous low orbit, ballistic, transfer orbit to the Lagrange point L1, etc. - for Earth observation, science, education, defense and other applications. With the follow-on Vega C, Arianespace will offer its customers higher performance and greater payload volume at the same cost.

ЦитатаSEOSAT-Ingenio satellite

By launching SEOSAT-Ingenio, the first Spanish Earth observation satellite, Arianespace reinforces its relationship with Spain (fifth contributor at ESA) - a country that also is very involved in European launchers program.

SEOSAT-Ingenio is a high-resolution optical imaging mission of Spain - the flagship mission of the Spanish space strategic plan. Its mission is devoted to ensure an even coverage of the areas of national interest, providing a large operational capability in the capture of high-resolution multi-spectral land optical images for numerous user groups, as well as supporting and optimizing the development in Spain of teledetection-based applications in Spain.

The overall mission objective is to provide information for applications in cartography, land use, urban management, water management, environmental monitoring, risk management and security.

With its capability to look sideways, it can access any point on Earth within three days, and will be used to help map natural disasters such as floods, wildfires and earthquakes - as well as help with one of humankind's biggest challenges: understanding and responding to climate change.

SEOSAT-Ingenio will be the 57th mission (79th satellite) to be launched by Arianespace for ESA (ESA/Earth observation programs directorate) at the benefit of Spain's Center for Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI - Centro para el Desarrollo Tecnológico Industrial). INTA, the National Institute of Aerospace Technology (in Torrejon de ArdozMadrid) will own and operate the satellite.

The SEOSAT-Ingenio spacecraft is the first built by an industrial consortium of the Spanish space sector companies led by Airbus Defence and Space. SEOSAT-Ingenio will be the 128th Airbus Defence and Space satellite to be launched by Arianespace.

There are currently 20 Airbus Defence and Space satellites in Arianespace's backlog. In addition, Airbus Defence and Space is also involved in the design and manufacturing of the OneWeb satellites to be deployed by Arianespace.

There are seven additional ESA missions (for nine satellites) in the Arianespace backlog.

ЦитатаTARANIS satellite

Arianespace at the service of the French space program with TARANIS, the CNES scientific satellite.

TARANIS (Tool for the Analysis of RAdiation from lightNIng and Sprites), the Celtic god of thunder and lightning, is the first satellite designed to observe luminous, radiative and electromagnetic phenomena occurring at altitudes of 20 to 100 km over thunderstorms.

Discovered 20 years ago, such transient luminous events (TLEs) such as red sprites, blue jets, elves, sprite halos, etc. remain shrouded in mystery. They are sometimes accompanied by terrestrial gamma-ray flashes (TGFs). The correlation between these TLEs and TGFs is one of the scientific questions the TARANIS mission hopes to answer. TLEs has been observed for the first time since the ROCSAT-2 satellite, renamed FORMOSAT-2, the second high-resolution Earth Observation satellite for the Taiwanese National Space Program Office (NSPO), manufactured Airbus Defence and Space.

The TARANIS microsatellite will fly over thousands of TLEs and TGFs for at least four years and will be capable of detecting these events and recording their luminous and radiative signatures at high resolution, as well as the electromagnetic perturbations they set off in Earth's upper atmosphere. The payload includes numerous sensors to observe the TLEs and to perform in-situ measurements of perturbations caused on the local plasma (fields, waves and particles).

The TARANIS mission has three main objectives:

 Advance physical understanding of the links between TLEs (red sprites, blue jets, elves, sprite halos... currently named "Transient Luminous Events") and TGFs (Terrestrial Gamma ray Flashes), in their source regions, and the environmental conditions (lightning activity, variations in the thermal plasma, occurrence of extensive atmospheric shower...).
 Identification of the generation mechanisms for TLEs and TGFs and, in particular, the particle and wave field events, which are involved in the generation processes or which are produced by the generation processes.
 Evaluation of the potential effects of TLEs, TGFs, and bursts of precipitated and accelerated electrons (in particular lightning induced electron precipitation and runaway electron beams) on the Earth atmosphere or on the radiation belts.

TARANIS will be the 18th satellite (including Pleiades satellites) to be launched by Arianespace for CNES as a customer.

TARANIS will be the seventh satellite to be launched by Arianespace for CNES as a manufacturer
