The Case of the Missing Vega AVUM Propellant Tanks
By Andrew Parsonson -
December 4, 2023

Two of the four tanks necessary to power the fourth stage of the final Vega flight disappeared several months ago, leaving Avio scrambling to find an alternate solution.

The Vega AVUM fourth stage stands at 1.74 meters tall with a diameter of 1.9 meters. The stage is equipped with the Ukrainian RD-869 UDMH/NTO liquid-fueled engine. The propellant for the engine is stored across four spherical tanks.

A source talking to European Spaceflight revealed in early October that two of the four propellant tanks for the final Vega flight had gone missing. Last week, a second source independently verified the story.

As of late 2022, the final flight of Vega was to have been the European Space Agency’s Biomass forest measuring satellite, the launch contract of which had been signed in October 2019. However, in early 2023, the agency began to consider that the launch of its Sentinel 2C Earth observation mission was more urgent. The decision to swap out Biomass for Sentinel 2C was officially made during the summer. The contract to build Sentinel 2C and 2D was awarded to Airbus Defence and Space in January 2016. The contract was worth more than €280 million.

The two propellant tanks that went missing were housed in an Avio production department in Colleferro that had undergone renovation work. At some point following the completion of the renovations, the two tanks were found to be missing.

According to the initial source, the tanks had not been entered into a company-wide asset management system that tracked the location of all vital Avio components. This ensured that the teams tasked with investigating the disappearance had very little to go on when beginning their search for the missing tanks.

Despite the futility of the search, the tanks were eventually found. This was, however, not the good news Avio had hoped for. The tanks are, unfortunately, not in a usable state. They had been crushed and were found alongside metal scraps in a landfill.

At the moment, Avio does not have any way of acquiring new tanks for the mission, with all Vega production lines having been shut down. Avio is, as a result, exploring two options in an attempt to salvage the mission.

The first potential solution is using the four tanks that were used during the vehicle’s qualification phase before its maiden flight in 2012. The company hoped to utilize two of the tanks to perform re-qualification tests, leaving the other two for the flight itself. However, this solution is not without its challenges. These tanks have been sitting around for over a decade, and the integrity of several elements that would be incredibly difficult to inspect would be next to impossible to guarantee. While this route is still being considered, there is also an alternate plan in the works.

As a last-ditch effort to save the final Vega mission, Avio is now looking at modifying the AVUM upper stage for use aboard Vega. This Frankenstein solution, which would use elements of a Vega C AVUM+ stage, would be completely unproven. This makes trusting a critical payload with what is essentially a test flight a challenging ask.

Regardless of which solution Avio goes with, the company is unlikely to be able to fulfill its commitment to launch the final Vega flight in the first half of 2024.

European Spaceflight asked ESA, Avio, and Arianespace if they would like to comment on this story, but all declined.

Correction: An earlier version of the article stated that Biomass was being launched aboard the final Vega flight in 2024.

Planned launches:
Date - Satellite(s) - Rocket - Launch Site - Time (UTC)

Unclear:
Date - Satellite(s) - Rocket - Launch Site
2031-2032 - Cairt [Earth Explorer 11 candidate] - TBD - Kourou
2031-2032 - Nitrosat [Earth Explorer 11 candidate] - TBD - Kourou
2031-2032 - Seastar [Earth Explorer 11 candidate] - TBD - Kourou
2031-2032 - Wivern [Earth Explorer 11 candidate] - TBD - Kourou

Cairt and Wivern Earth Explorer candidates go forward (EE11)

Quote
ESA has reached a significant milestone in its commitment towards a deeper understanding of Earth's dynamic processes and addressing pressing environmental challenges with the selection of two new candidates – Cairt and Wivern – to progress to the next development phase as part of the process of realising the Agency’s eleventh Earth Explorer satellite mission.

Quote
The two Earth Explorer 11 mission concepts promise to build on the success of missions that provide or are set to provide vital data for scientific research.

Cairt – short for changing-atmosphere infrared tomography – would provide the measurements needed to make a necessary step change in understanding the links between climate change, atmospheric chemistry and dynamics in the altitude range of about 5 to 115 km.

It would focus on the processes that couple atmospheric circulation, composition and regional climate change, providing critical observations not available from existing or planned satellite missions.

Cairt would be the first limb-sounder with imaging Fourier-transform infrared technology in space.

Wivern – short for wind velocity radar nephoscope – would provide the first measurements of wind within clouds and precipitation. It would also deliver profiles of rain, snow and ice water.

Carrying a dual-polarisation, conically scanning, 94 GHz Doppler radar with an 800 km swath, the mission would improve forecasts of hazardous weather and provide new insights into severe storms.

It would also contribute to the climate record of cloud and precipitation profiling.

Selection of Earth Explorer 11 in 2025 and launch in the 2032–33 timeframe.

From the ESA Council media briefing that just concluded: the next Vega (not Vega C) launch has slipped to September 2024 to accommodate a workaround for lost AVUM tanks. Also, Biomass has been taken off that launch; its launch plans are TBD.

Quote
The problem with the final Vega is separate from ongoing work to return the Vega C to flight after a launch failure nearly a year ago. The next Vega C launch is currently scheduled for between mid-November and mid-December of 2024, Tolker-Nielsen said, after two static-fire tests of the Zefiro-40 second stage of that vehicle with a redesigned nozzle.

Space Rider Completes Initial Ground Segment Testing (European Spaceflight)

Quote
Teams from Telespazio, ALTEC, and Thales Alenia Space have successfully completed the first ground segment tests for the European Space Agency’s reusable Space Rider spacecraft.

ESA’s Space Rider likely to launch third quarter of 2025, program manager says (NASASpaceflight.com)

Quote
Space Rider was initially scheduled to complete its maiden flight in 2023, however, several delays have pushed the date back. According to Galli, the new target date is now the third quarter of 2025.

ORLANDO, Fla. — Europe may shift the launch of a Copernicus Earth observation satellite to SpaceX’s Falcon 9 to avoid further delays in getting it into orbit.

At a press briefing Jan. 11, Simonetta Cheli, director of Earth observation at the European Space Agency, said the agency and the European Commission will decide in the near future whether to switch the Sentinel-1C radar imaging satellite from Vega C to Falcon 9.

ESA, she said, is providing information to the Commission “in terms of options for launch” of the spacecraft. “The Commission is assessing all elements and in the coming days and weeks, we’ll take a final decision considering a backup option of Falcon 9.”
...
At the briefing, Toni Tolker-Nielsen, ESA’s director of space transportation, said the return to flight for Vega C is currently scheduled for mid-November, but suggested that it could slip by a month. “It should be at least before the end of the year. We’re pretty sure of that,” he said.
...
ESA and the European Commission already have plans for as many as four Falcon 9 launches this year. ESA’s EarthCARE Earth science mission is scheduled for launch in May on a Falcon 9, while the Hera asteroid mission is planned to launch in October. The European Commission announced in November it was finalizing a contract with SpaceX to launch two pairs of Galileo navigation satellites on Falcon 9 rockets, tentatively scheduled for April and July.

Miura 5 is a small launch vehicle with a payload of up to 540 kilograms to low Earth orbit. The vehicle’s first stage is designed to be recovered through ocean splashdown and reused. Test flights are scheduled to begin as soon as 2025 from a launch site in French Guiana.

Because of the Vega-C problems, Arianespace loses LUXEOSys.
It is scheduled to launch on Falcon-9 between Oct. 2024 and Jan. 2025.
