Upcoming Ariane 6 Launches

🎯 Sun-Synchronous Orbit

First of EUMETSAT's second generation of Metop weather satellites.

Updated: Jan 3, 8:05pm UTC

Payload consists of two satellites for Europe's Galileo navigation system.

Updated: Jan 3, 8:05pm UTC

🎯 Geostationary Transfer Orbit

Optus-11 is a Ku-band communications satellite with a coverage zone encompassing Australia and New Zealand. Optus-11 incorporates a number of advanced technologies, especially the latest developments in digital processing, plus active antennas enabling the creation of several thousand beams.

🎯 Geostationary Transfer Orbit

The ViaSat-3 is a series of three Ka-band satellites is expected to provide vastly superior capabilities in terms of service speed and flexibility for a satellite platform. Each ViaSat-3 class satellite is expected to deliver more than 1-Terabit per second of network capacity, and to leverage high levels of flexibility to dynamically direct capacity to where customers are located.

🎯 Geostationary Transfer Orbit

Intelsat 45 is a small geostationary communications satellite that will provide Ku-band fixed-satellite services enabling Intelsat to provide specialized and efficient service to Media and Network customers. IS-45 weighs about 1 metric ton at launch and is designed and built by SWISSto12, based on the company’s innovative HummingSat platform. HummingSats are just over one cubic meter in volume, one-tenth the size of conventional satellites placed in geostationary orbit. SWISSto12 is developing the satellites in collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA) through its public-private-partnership program, benefiting from unique and patented 3D printing technologies.

Atmospheric Remote sensing Infrared Exoplanet Large survey mission (ARIEL) is an ESA telescope. During a 4-year mission, ARIEL will observe 1000 planets orbiting distant stars and make the first large-scale survey of the chemistry of exoplanet atmospheres. For a select number of exoplanets, ARIEL will also perform a deep survey of their cloud systems and study seasonal and daily atmospheric variations. ARIEL shares the ride with another ESA mission, Comet Interceptor. It consists of three spacecraft which will be positioned at the Sun-Earth Lagrange point L2, where they will wait for a long-period comet or an interstellar object to come by. Once the desired target appears, the spacecraft will separate and perform a flyby of the target, compiling a detailed 3D profile of a comet.
