PRESS RELEASE / FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Suspension of Soyuz launches operated by Arianespace & Starsem
March 4, 2022

Arianespace is strictly abiding by the sanctions decided by the international community (European Union, United States of America and United Kingdom) following the invasion of Ukraine by Russia.

As part of the mandate given by the ESA Member States to Arianespace, the operation of the Soyuz launcher from Europe’s Spaceport (CSG, French Guiana) and from Baikonur (Kazakhstan) through Starsem are governed by France/Russia inter-governmental agreement and ESA – Roscosmos space agencies agreement. This operation began after the end of the Soviet Union and has been very successful up to now. However, it is now challenged by Roscosmos’ unilateral decision to withdraw from CSG and suspend all Soyuz launches from Europe’s Spaceport. Readied Soyuz launchers and Galileo satellites are in stable configuration and in security.

Regarding ST38 for OneWeb from Baikonur, it has been postponed indefinitely following the conditions posed by Roscosmos to proceed. Arianespace will work with its partners to ensure the well-being of the goods and means currently in Baikonur.

Arianespace is in close contact with its customers and French and European authorities to best assess all the consequences of this situation and develop alternative solutions.

In the meantime, preparation of upcoming Ariane 5 and Vega C campaigns of 2022 are progressing according to plan and schedule.

Taking over from Ariane 5 and Vega, Ariane 6 and Vega C will provide Europe with a sustainable and autonomous access to space. Arianespace is confident in the success of these two launchers, to which it has been strongly committed since ESA’s 2014 Ministerial Conference in Luxembourg, on European institutional and global commercial markets.

The French/German spy satellite CSO-3 switches back from Soyuz-ST to Ariane-6.
Launch on Ariane 6 at the end of 2023.
Several sources:

https://www.tellerreport.com/tech/2022-03-04-the-next-french-spy-satellite-should-be-launched-by-ariane-6.HJLti5sJbc.html

Euclid is also set to switch to Ariane 6.
But has a lower priority. (Me: probably not until 2024)

The French/German spy satellite CSO-3 switches back from Soyuz-ST to Ariane-6.
Launch on Ariane 6 at the end of 2023.
Several sources:

Euclid is also set to switch to Ariane 6.

Took a few days but ESA and CNES sources now confirm this report and Salo's recent changes: EUCLID has been re-assigned to an Ariane 6 launch.
CSO-3 is also indeed back to an Ariane 6 launch.

And more assignments for Ariane 6 are coming. Keep watching the news in the next several weeks. What it basically boils down to is that Dimitry Rogozin, in all his infinitely stupid attempts to exact revenge on ESA and EU, just saved the medium-to-long term future of Ariane 6. One CNES source I communicated with was almost giddy with joy.

According to French daily La Tribune

Quote
Selon nos informations, le motoriste italien aurait sécurisé trois moteurs, qui sont en Italie, mais trois autres étaient en cours de fabrication par Youjnoye avant le début des hostilités.

According to our information, the Italian engine manufacturer has secured three engines, which are in Italy, but three others were being manufactured by Youjnoye before the start of hostilities.

ESA’s David Parker: if able to restart cooperation with Roscosmos, a 2024 launch is feasible. If more radical changes needed, look at launch in 2026 and 2028. There are Russian instruments on the ExoMars rover, and Russia supplied radioisotope heating units for it.

Aschbacher says even a 2026 launch of ExoMars is “very challenging, realistically” if major changes needed. Many technical and financial issues.

ESA says using the inaugural Ariane 6 launch for one of the stranded Soyuz payloads is a possible option, but not necessarily likely. Not a baseline option but will be assessed.

Arianespace signs unprecedented contract with Amazon for 18 Ariane 6 launches to deploy Project Kuiper constellation
April 5, 2022

Arianespace and Amazon sign agreement for 18 Ariane 6 launches, the largest ever both for Arianespace.
The highest performing version of Ariane 6, Ariane 64, will be used over three years to orbit satellites of the Project Kuiper broadband constellation.
Arianespace and Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) announced an unprecedented launch service contract during the International Space Symposium in Colorado Springs, USA, on April 5. Under the terms of the contract, Arianespace will perform 18 Ariane 6 launches for Amazon’s Project Kuiper over a period of three years from Europe’s Spaceport in French Guiana. Among the 18 launches planned for the deployment of the Project Kuiper, 16 will be carried out with an advanced version of the Ariane 64.
 
Stéphane Israël, CEO of Arianespace, declared: “This contract, the largest we’ve ever signed, is a great moment in Arianespace’s history. We are honored to be given a significant role to play in the deployment of Amazon’s Project Kuiper, which aims to connect tens of millions of people to the internet. It will build on the European innovative spirit, industrial might, and years of experience of the Ariane partners. That Amazon has chosen the Ariane 6 to do the job is a matter of tremendous pride for us and a great vote of confidence for our new launch vehicle. This day marks a decisive success for the Ariane 6 Program and all its value chain in Europe.”
 
Arianespace is renowned for its competence in deploying institutional and commercial satellite constellations. For this contract, Arianespace will rely on the Ariane 64 vehicle, the highest performing European launcher which is perfectly tailored for the demanding work of deploying constellations. Ariane 6 will enter service and replace the Ariane 5 as Arianespace’s heavy lift workhorse.
 
The versatility, high capability, and expected reliability of the Ariane 6 played a key role in securing this agreement with Amazon for the Project Kuiper. Ariane 6 has been designed from the outset to be scalable and able to integrate, during its life and on a regular basis, new technologies. Out of the 18 A64 launches, 16 A64 will benefit from an increase in the power of the P120C solid boosters (called “P120C+” version). Ariane 6’s incremental development is intended to regularly improve the performance of the launch solutions offered by Arianespace and always better fulfil the needs of both institutional and commercial customers. These developments are funded and managed by the European Space Agency (ESA) and implemented by Ariane 6’s launcher system prime contractor ArianeGroup.
 
Amazon’s Project Kuiper aims to connect the unconnected, providing high-speed, low-latency broadband to unserved and underserved communities across the globe at affordable rates. Homes, schools, hospitals, businesses, governments, and institutions that lack access to connectivity could soon have it through Project Kuiper.
