Preparations
Resume For
Vega Launcher

T

he launch campaign has resumed
for Arianespace's next mission,
which will be the proof-of-concept
flight with the Vega launcher's 'rideshare' configuration - known as the
Small Spacecraft Mission Service
(SSMS).

Arianespace utilised smart glasses
during payload checks for Flight VV16

Scheduled for the middle of June
from the Spaceport in French Guiana,
it will loft 53 micro and nanosatellites
for the benefit of 21 customers,
deploying these payloads into SunSynchronous orbit.
For the mission, designated Flight
VV16 in Arianespace's launcher
family numbering system, Vega will
carry seven microsatellites weighing
from 15 to 150kg, along with 46
smaller CubeSats. These spacecraft
are to serve various applications,
including
Earth
observation,
telecommunications,
science,
technology and education.
The SSMS program, initiated by the
ESA with the European Commission's
contribution, will boost Arianespace's
ability to offer ride-share solutions
tailored for the flourishing small
satellite market.
Avio, the Italian company that is
production prime contractor for Vega
launch vehicles, also developed the
SSMS ride-share concept. Design
authority for the multi-payload
dispenser system is SAB Aerospace.
The SSMS dispenser is composed
of modular components that are
assembled as needed to serve as
the interface with grouped payloads
composed of microsatellites and
CubeSats.
Capable of accepting a full range
of payload combinations, the SSMS
configuration has been designed to be
as responsive as possible in meeting
the launch service market's needs
for both institutional and commercial
customers.

The Vega launcher for Arianespace
Flight VV16 takes shape
