EUMETSAT chooses Arianespace to launch Metop-C
Evry, September 10, 2010

The European meteorological satellite organization EUMETSAT has chosen Arianespace to launch its new satellite, Metop-C.

Metop-C will be launched into polar orbit during the last quarter of 2016 by a Soyuz launch vehicle from the Guiana Space Center in French Guiana.

In practice SPOT 5 is expected to operate to mid 2015 with SPOT 6 planned for launch in 2012 and SPOT 7 some 15 months later extending the operations until at least 2023. This has immense value for the international imaging marketplace as it ensures a continuation of 2 m imagery through to 2023. The four satellites planned for launch in the coming 4 years.

Arianespace is holding open the possibility of launching two commercial communications satellites in its December slot, in case the ATV is not ready for flight.

"We have to decide exactly what to do," said Jean-Yves Le Gall, Arianespace's chairman and CEO. "We have the further question of the launch window for the ATV because there are some docking windows to the space station. We will decide by the end of September what will be the sixth flight of the year."
Quote
A third ATV is slated for launch in February 2012. Its service module and cargo carrier are being assembled in Bremen and Torino, Italy, respectively, Dettmann said.

At least two more ATVs are on the books for launch in February 2013 and February 2014.

There is a new German-French Earth Observation mission called Merlin coming in 2014. Merlin will observe the methane concentration in Earth´s atmosphere.  The budget is 120 million Euro.

Arianespace Board of Directors meets: Three more Ariane 5 launches in 2010

Evry, September 20, 2010

The Board of Directors of Arianespace met on Monday, September 20, 2010 in Evry, near Paris. The Board approved the launch manifest for 2010 and 2011, congratulated the company on its record order book, and started operations to strengthen its financial structure.

Launch manifest

With 38 successful launches in a row, and more than seven years without a failure, Ariane 5 continues to confirm its operational maturity, launch after launch. Three Ariane 5 launches have already been successfully completed in 2010, and the next launch has been confirmed for Wednesday, October 28, carrying the Eutelsat W3B and B-SAT Corp. BSAT-3b satellites. Preparations of the satellites will start this week at the Guiana Space Center. The next two launches are scheduled by the end of the year, and will orbit four more geostationary satellites.

The first Ariane 5 launch in 2011 – which will be the 200th Ariane mission – will boost into orbit the Johannes Kepler ATV (Automated Transfer Vehicle) cargo vessel on a date compatible with the docking slots for the International Space Station (ISS), to be decided by ISS partners. This date will be guaranteed no matter what the schedule is for other Ariane 5 launches, thus confirming the versatility of the European launch system.

Arianespace and subsidiary Starsem will use the Soyuz launcher to orbit six Globalstar-2 satellites on October 19, 2010 from the Cosmodrome in Baikonur, Kazakhstan. The first launch of a Soyuz rocket from the Guiana Space Center in French Guiana is set for the spring of 2011.

The first launch of the new Vega light launcher is expected next year as well.

Record order book

Since its founding, Arianespace has signed more than 300 launch Service & Solutions contracts with 77 customers, and has launched 283 satellites, representing more than half of all the commercial satellites now in service worldwide.

Since the beginning of the year Arianespace has signed nine more launch contracts for geostationary satellites, as well as six new contracts for dedicated Soyuz launches.

Arianespace’s order book now stands at €4.4 billion, an all-time record, including 32 geostationary satellites, six Ariane 5 launches for the ATV, and 18 Soyuz launches.

Strengthened financial structure

In line with decisions made at the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders in April, the Board of Directors has started operations to increase the company’s share capital, in order to offset the losses recorded in 2009 and strengthen its financial structure.

About Arianespace

Arianespace is the world’s leading launch service & solutions company, providing innovation to its customers since 1980. Backed by 24 shareholders and the European Space Agency, Arianespace offers an unrivalled family of launchers, comprising Ariane 5, Soyuz and Vega, and an international workforce renowned for a culture of commitment and excellence. As of September 15 2010, Arianespace had launched a total of 283 payloads, including more than half of all the commercial satellites now in service worldwide. It has a backlog of 22 Ariane 5 and 18 Soyuz launches, equal to more than three years of business.

The first flight of Russia's Soyuz-ST carrier rocket from the European space center in French Guiana may take place in March 2011, a senior Russian space official said on Wednesday.

"The next spacecraft - these could be the Pleiades satellites of the French space agency - are scheduled to be launched in March 2011," Remishevsky said.

The first launch of Soyuz from the Guiana Space Center is scheduled for April 2011. Arianespace’s customers have expressed their confidence in this new system by signing 18 launch contracts to date. Arianespace has therefore ordered 24 launchers from Russian industry, with the first two already delivered to CSG. The Soyuz launch complex (ELS) will be handed over to Arianespace by the end of 2010 and, following the inaugural launch in April 2011, two more Soyuz launches are scheduled by the end of that year.

The Ariane 6, according to preliminary French studies, would be designed to carry one large telecommunications satellite at a time into geostationary orbit. The vehicle could be developed in different variants to carry lighter telecommunications satellites as well, possibly replacing the European version of Russia’s Soyuz, whose first launch from Europe’s Guiana Space Center spaceport is scheduled for the first half of 2011.

“The Webb telescope will now cost $6.5 billion, $1.5 billion more than the estimate included in NASA’s February 2010 budget request, Mikulski wrote in a Nov. 10 letter to NASA Administrator Charles Bolden after reading the Oct. 29 report. “Its launch will be delayed by over a year, from June 2014 to September 2015.”

Launch window for IOV-1 (with 2 sats) on Soyuz 28-08-2011 - 28-09-2011

IOV-2 for 2011/2012 more on that later

Oh, and it looks like "somebody up high" likes taking risks and it seems we will go first on Soyuz from CSG...

The problem is that Galileo launch requires Soyuz-STB rocket, which is not in Kourou, and that there was agreement that the first launch will be with Soyuz-STA use. The problem is that French Ministry of Defense does not want to launch Pléiades satellite in the first flight. The Soyuz-STA dry rollout to the launch pad will be in February 2011 and, after that, the first launch will depend on payload: if Pléiades - then launch in May, if Galileo - then August/September 2011.
