Airbus studies “Moon Cruiser” concept for ESA’s cis-lunar transfer vehicle

Versatile, autonomous logistics vehicle to support future lunar missions based on heritage from Orion ESM and ATV

Toulouse, 28 January 2021 - Airbus has been awarded a CLTV (Cis-Lunar Transfer Vehicle) study for a "Moon Cruiser" by the European Space Agency (ESA). According to the study concept (two parallel Phase A/B1), the CLTV is a versatile, autonomous logistics vehicle that could, for example, provide timely and efficient support to NASA and ESA in the implementation of the future Artemis Moon missions. The spacecraft will be based on existing and proven technologies and will complement the multipurpose European Large Logistic Lander (EL3).

The execution of lunar missions, including landing on the Moon and setting up upcoming lunar space station, Gateway, is a complex and challenging task for the international community. It requires a precisely planned chain of supply and logistics missions. The Airbus Moon Cruiser concept supports these challenges in several ways:

·         Gateway logistics: the CLTV can transport cargo or fuel for refuelling in lunar orbit and to the Gateway, the international project led by the two main contributors NASA (United States) and ESA (Europe), supporting a sustainable presence on the Moon and exploration beyond and a pillar of NASA’s Artemis programme.

·         Transfer of a large Lunar Module into Low Lunar Orbit: The CLTV is required to fly a lander or an ascent stage between the Gateway and the low lunar orbit, to perform landing and ascent missions with larger and more extensive services

·         CLTV’s versatility will also allow it to support missions to post-ISS orbital infrastructure in LEO as well as missions in the field of GEO satcom servicing.

The CLTV's design allows multiple mission types to be carried out with a single vehicle and is compatible with various launchers. Airbus’ solution is a mature, versatile and modular concept based on a large portfolio of mission and vehicle designs for Human Space-flight and Exploration built by Airbus for ESA including the Orion European Service Module (ESM), as well as five successful Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV) space transporter missions, carrying a total of around 30 tonnes of cargo into space.

“With the Airbus Moon Cruiser concept for CLTV, we are establishing the first building blocks for humans and machines to work together all the way between the Earth and the Moon. CLTV can serve Gateway logistics and add value to the EL3 Large Lunar Lander by enabling additional missions, whether standalone for Europe or as part of wider international co-operation,” said Andreas Hammer, Head of Space Exploration at Airbus.

The CLTV can be launched on Ariane 6, and it could transport a module of over 4.5 tonnes to the Gateway. The European Space Agency ESA could deploy the CLTV in the second half of the decade and it is planned that the CLTV will literally "cruise" on a direct flight path to the Moon.

The target is to validate the following, implementation phase (B2/C/D) of CLTV at the next Ministerial Council in 2022, with the aim of launching in 2027.

Airbus is building the European Service Module for ESA for the new NASA spacecraft Orion, the central spacecraft of future NASA space exploration. The first service module has already been delivered to NASA by Airbus. A second service module is currently being built at Airbus in Bremen. The first launch for Orion - a test flight without astronauts - will take Orion into a lunar orbit and back to Earth under the Artemis I mission and is scheduled for 2021.

MOSCOW, 1 Feb - RIA Novosti. Five launches of the Russian Soyuz-ST carrier rockets are scheduled until 2023 from the Kourou cosmodrome in French Guiana, follows from materials posted on the public procurement website.
Earlier, a RIA Novosti source in the rocket and space industry said that three Soyuz launches with Kuru are expected in 2021: in September - with two European Galileo navigation satellites, in November and December - two launches with 34 British OneWeb communication satellites in each.
"The subject of this contract is the lease of vehicles for the transportation of Russian personnel during the VS26-VS30 launch campaigns and during the work to maintain the technical readiness of the ground equipment of the Soyuz launch complex at the Guiana Space Center in 2020-2022," the Operations Center said. objects of ground space infrastructure (enterprise "Roskosmos").

The EUTELSAT HOTBIRD 13G satellite will host the EGNOS GEO-4 payload. The satellite is being built by Airbus Defence and Space and is scheduled for launch in the first half of 2022.

But the launch provider has not yet been officially announced by Eutelsat.
an MoU was signed with Arianspace:

NET Q2 - Eutelsat Hotbird 13F, Eutelsat Hotbird 13G - Ariane 5ECA+/64 - Kourou ELA-3/ELA-4

I know. But they also have that with ILS. Possibly also a reservation with SpaceX.
In 2018 a "long-term multiple-launch service agreement" was signed between Eutelsat and Arinespace for 5 launches.

So Eutelsat has signed 2 launch contracts with Arianspace in the meantime. Eutelsat-10B is one.
The other may be the undisclosed satellite some time ago. If this is Eutelsat, then it can be Hotbird-13F or Hotbird-13G or Konnect-VHTS.

ILS is very much no longer expected as it is running quickly out of launchers to allocate on Proton and Angara is lacking right now.

Cross-post; perhaps a payload for one of the Ariane 5 launches in 2022?:
According to various sources in India GSAT-24 is to be launched by Arianespace, sometime this fall....:

"GSAT-24 will be a 4.1 ton communications satellite that will put 24 Ku-band transponders into space to be used for DTH services. “The cost of the satellite is 400 million rupees and NSIL will launch it through Arianespace. The launch is expected to occur sometime in September,” Sivan said."

The launch date seems doubtful, though.

Paired with Eutelsat Hot Bird 13F ?

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

2021
H2 - Eutelsat Hotbird 13F - Ariane 5ECA+ - Kourou ELA-3 (or Falcon 9)
H2 - GSAT-24 - Ariane 5ECA+ - Kourou ELA-3 (or Falcon 9)
Changes on February 19th
Changes on February 20th

Why "(or Falcon 9)" for GSAT-24 ?
It's understood so for Eutelsat Hot Bird 13F, not for GSAT-24 which is said to be launched by Arianespace.

MOSCOW, February 22 - RIA Novosti. Two additional launches of Soyuz-2 carrier rockets in the interests of the British company OneWeb may take place from the Vostochny cosmodrome this year, two sources in the rocket and space industry told RIA Novosti.
Earlier, another source of the agency in the industry said that in 2021, six or seven launches of Soyuz-2 missiles from Vostochny are planned. According to him, the commercial program foresees three launches of rockets with 36 British communication satellites OneWeb on board each, three or four launches are expected under the federal program: with the Meteor-M meteorological satellite, two Ionosphere-M scientific vehicles, the Luna-25 station and, possibly, the Kondor-FKA Earth observation radar satellite.
"At the request of the French company Arianespace (which provides commercial launch services using Soyuz-2 missiles - ed.), Two more Soyuz-2 launches with 36 OneWeb satellites in each may be included in the launch schedule," said one of the sources.
Another source confirmed this information, adding that two more launches, planned for March 25, April 23 and May, in the interests of OneWeb, may be added - in June and July. "The June start is possible with a high degree of probability, and the July start is still in question," he said.

GSAT-24 will be a 4.1 tonne communication satellite that will put into space 24 Ku-band transponders to be used for DTH services. “The satellite’s cost is Rs 400 crore and NSIL will be launching it through Arianespace. The launch is expected to happen sometime in September,” Sivan said.
The PSU is also negotiating to acquire GSAT-20, a high-throughput satellite, which will also be launched commercially. “Aside from GSAT-20, DishTV has held preliminary talks with NSIL for another satellite,” Sivan added.

The launch of the Heinrich Hertz satellite may be delayed until 2023.
Is he still on the Ariane 5 launchschedule? Or is there a shift to Ariane 6?
