Looking at Earth: Vega's dual European observation satellite payload is integrated for launch


The photos above show TARANIS being lowered into the Vega launch vehicle's VESPA dispenser system during integration activity at the Spaceport in French Guiana.

The two passengers on Arianespace's upcoming Vega flight - which will focus on the Earth and its dynamic atmosphere above thunderstorms - have been encapsulated within the launch vehicle's protective fairing in preparation for a November 16 nighttime liftoff from the Spaceport in French Guiana.

This encapsulation process with the SEOSAT-Ingenio and TARANIS satellites was performed inside the Spaceport's S5 processing facility, marking completion of the payload integration phase for Arianespace Flight VV17 - which will release the two European spacecraft into Sun-synchronous orbits. Both satellites will operate in similar orbits at an altitude of approximately 700 km.

The satellites' arrangement places SEOSAT-Ingenio atop a dispenser system called VESPA (Vega Secondary Payload Adaptor), produced by Airbus in Spain for Vega launcher prime contractor Avio. Positioned inside the VESPA structure is TARANIS. This payload/dispenser/fairing combination - referred to as the "composite" - is now ready for installation atop the launch vehicle.

Observing the planet with SEOSAT-Ingenio


Protected by a layer of conductive material, SEOSAT-Ingenio is positioned atop the VESPA dispenser, which contains the previously-integrated TARANIS satellite.

To be deployed 54 minutes after Vega's liftoff, SEOSAT-Ingenio is the first Spanish Earth observation satellite - designed to provide information for national applications in cartography, land use, urban management, water management, environmental monitoring, risk management and security.

SEOSAT-Ingenio was built by an industrial consortium of Spanish space-sector companies led by Airbus Defence and Space. It is being launched for the European Space Agency (ESA) at the benefit of Spain's CDTI (Center for Development of Industrial Technology).

The Spanish Instituto Nacional de Técnica Aeroespacial (INTA), will own and operate the satellite - which has an estimated liftoff mass of 788 kg.

In a shift from typical payload processing practices at the Spaceport, SEOSAT-Ingenio has undergone its preparations with a see-through protective cover made of conductive material, which ensures an extra-high degree of cleanliness. The cover was removed just prior to SEOSAT-Ingenio's encapsulation in Vega's payload fairing.

TARANIS: advancing science from space

Vega's deployment of TARANIS at 1 hour, 42 minutes into the mission will mark the conclusion of Arianespace Flight VV17.

Launched for the French CNES space agency as its customer and spacecraft prime contractor, TARANIS is the first satellite designed to observe the mysterious red sprites, blue jets, elves and sprite halos that occur at altitudes of 20 to 100 km. above thunderstorms. More formally known as transient luminous events (TLEs), they are categorized as luminous, radiative and electromagnetic phenomena.

During the course of its mission, TARANIS will overfly thousands of transient luminous events - detecting these occurrences and recording their luminous and radiative signatures at high resolution. In addition to its role as a fundamental research satellite, data on Earth's thermal and climate mechanisms to be gathered by TARANIS could serve more operational applications such climatology and weather forecasting.

Liftoff mass of the spacecraft, which is part of CNES' family of Myriade small satellites, is estimated at 175 kg. The spacecraft is named TARANIS after the Celtic god of thunder and lightning, and also is the acronym of: Tool for the Analysis of RAdiation from lightNIng and Sprites.

Flight VV17 will be Arianespace's seventh mission this year using members of its launcher family. It follows three previous flights in 2020 with Ariane 5, two using Soyuz, and Vega's September success that validated the Small Spacecraft Mission Service (SSMS) shared launch concept.



Flight VV17's payload is encapsulated in the Vega fairing during activity at the Spaceport.

ЦитатаVega | November 15, 2020
Arianespace authorizes Vega for its launch of SEOSAT-Ingenio and TARANIS at the service of Europe

Arianespace has given the "green light" go-ahead for its Vega launch on November 16, which will orbit a pair of European-built satellites: Spain's SEOSAT-Ingenio and TARANIS of France.


Vega's "upper composite" - comprising the two satellite passengers integrated with their VESPA dispenser system, encapsulated by the payload fairing - is shown during its installation atop the launch vehicle.

The approval followed today's launch readiness review in French Guiana, which confirmed the preparedness of Vega, along with the payloads, the Spaceport's launch site infrastructure, and the network of tracking stations.

All is now set for the nighttime liftoff on November 16 at precisely 10:52 p.m. local time in French Guiana (1:52 UTC on November 17), initiating a flight that will last 1 hr. and 42 min. until final payload separation. Total payload performance is estimated at 1,192 kg.

Vega in the spotlight

This mission to Sun-synchronous orbit is designated VV17, and it will be performed from the Spaceport's ZLV launch complex - where Vega was assembled and now stands in a flight-ready configuration, protected by a mobile gantry that will be withdrawn prior to liftoff.

Flight VV17 will mark Arianespace's seventh mission in 2020, and is the company's second this year using a lightweight Vega - which is one of three launch vehicles operated by Arianespace at the Spaceport, along with the medium-lift Soyuz and heavyweight Ariane 5. Vega's production prime contractor is Avio.

Vega began operations from Europe's Spaceport in 2012, with the upcoming Flight VV17 to become its 17th. SEOSAT-Ingenio and TARANIS are to be the 84th and 85th satellites orbited by this vehicle - and the 745th and 746th lofted on an Arianespace mission overall.

A dual-payload deployment for Europe

For this latest Vega flight, the launcher is equipped with a Vega Secondary Payload Adaptor (VESPA), which enables the multi-satellite payload to be carried and deployed. VESPA is produced by Airbus Defence and Space in Spain for Avio.

SEOSAT-Ingenio will be released first during the Vega flight sequence, deployed from atop the VESPA structure. As the initial Spanish Earth observation satellite, this spacecraft was built by an industrial consortium of Spanish space-sector companies led by Airbus Defence and Space. It will be orbited for the European Space Agency (ESA) at the benefit of Spain's CDTI (Center for Development of Industrial Technology). The Spanish Instituto Nacional de Técnica Aeroespacial (INTA) will own and operate SEOSAT-Ingenio.

TARANIS is installed inside VESPA, and will be deployed to complete Arianespace's Flight VV17 - sending this spacecraft on its scientific mission to observe the mysterious red sprites, blue jets, elves and sprite halos that occur at altitudes of 20 to 100 km. above thunderstorms. It is being launched for the French CNES space agency as both customer and spacecraft prime contractor.
