ADM-Aeolus - Vega - Куру/CSG - 2018
Весьма информативный блог по подготовке
Nicolas CHAMUSSY‏ @ChamussyN 5 ч.5 часов назад

We were happy to welcome @janwoerner & @ESA official delegation for a visit to @AirbusSpace in Toulouse. We took the opportunity to see for one of the last times @ESA_EO wind-sensing satellite #Aeolus before its shipment to #Kourou.

да, сентябрь уже близко, пора его отправлять на Байконур, пардон господа, на Куру

эпично, однако, ничего не скажешь...

Ещё рановато, даже учитывая то, что в данном случае доставка не воздухом, а морем.
Avio‏ @Avio_Group 23 мар.

As part of the series of tests being carried out at Intespace in Toulouse, France, the #Aeolus satellite has been given a ‘fit check’ to see that it can be connected to its #Vega rocket. Aeolus will be launched from Europe’s Spaceport in French #Guiana in the autumn of 2018 #Avio

Some news from #Aeolus: the wind sensing satellite built by Airbus for @esa is currently in our cleanrooms to undergo final checks before being shipped to French Guiana in the summer ready for launch on a Vega

The preparation of aeolus for his departure to French Guyana is progressing normally. It seems to be sleeping but aeolus is working hard. Operators and software engineers are correcting software and procedures errors that were encountered during aeolusfunctional tests. Correcting is mostly about verifying that the corrections work in all imaginable situations ! Cables that show aeolus as under perfusion actually provide the stimuli that it would receive if it was in orbit.

The date of aeolus launch is (finally) official. It will be August 21, 2018, at 18:20 Kourou time, 23:20 Paris time. aeolus will be put into orbit by the 12th model of Vega, the smallest launcher that is available to Arianespace in French Guiana. The launch campaign will begin the very first days of July. This blog will follow the day-to-day campaign.
In the meantime, aeolus functional tests are running without any major hitch.

light flood – illumination


light flood test
aeolus is getting back its solar arrays. The first solar array was connected, mechanically and electrically. The electrical connection is confirmed by a light flood test. The lighting in the clean room is off. The panels of the solar array are lit, one after the other, by a work lamp. The screen of the telemetry of aeolus screen shows the power generated, weak of course, but well present.

Discover more about our planet with the Earth from Space video programme. In this special edition, ESA’s Aeolus Project Manager, Anders Elfving, joins us in the cleanroom at Airbus Defence and Space in Toulouse, France, to talk about the challenges in developing the mission’s pioneering laser technology.

In a rare move, the @ESA_EO #Aeolus spacecraft will take the boat to #CSG instead of the plane, aircraft's possible rapid descent in case of emergency is of concern to its sensitive instrument, hence the use of the boat, more here -> http://www.esa.int/Our_Activities/Observing_the_Earth/Aeolus/Aeolus_sets_sail … #ESA



Aeolus boarding

15 June 2018
Today is Global Wind Day, which couldn’t be more apt for ESA’s Aeolus wind satellite to begin its voyage to the launch site in French Guiana. And, while almost all satellites journey by aircraft, Aeolus is different, it’s going by ship.

Scheduled to liftoff on a Vega rocket on 21 August at 21:20 GMT (23:20 CEST) fr om Europe’s spaceport near Kourou, Aeolus carries one of the most sophisticated instruments ever to be put into orbit.

This pioneering mission uses powerful laser technology that probes the lowermost 30 km of our atmosphere to yield vertical profiles of the wind and information on aerosols and clouds.

Since the instrument is sensitive to pressure change, ESA and Airbus Defence and Space engineers decided that the safest way for it to journey from France, wh ere it has been going through testing, to French Guiana would be by ship.

Today is Global #Wind Day, which couldn’t be more apt for @esa’s #Aeolus wind satellite to begin its sea voyage to the launch site in French Guiana. May the winds be ever in your favour

#Aeolus, which will be the first-ever satellite to directly observe wind profiles from space, has arrived in French Guiana ahead of its #Vega launch in late August. Built by @AirbusSpace, it is part of @ESA’s Living Planet Programme. #VV12

Arianespace aims for busy second half of 2018
July 3, 2018 | Stephen Clark

Europe’s first mission to Mercury, a quartet of Galileo navigation spacecraft, a global winds observatory, and a new European weather satellite have arrived at an equatorial launch base in French Guiana in preparation for launches in the coming months.

The set of European missions are set to ride into space aboard four rockets, amid several more commercial flights carrying communications satellites to orbit, in what is shaping up to be a busy second half of the year for Arianespace, the French company which oversees Ariane 5, Soyuz and Vega launch operations at the European-run spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana.

The rapid-fire launch campaigns are already underway at the space center on the northeastern coast of South America, where technicians are preparing rocket and satellite hardware for liftoff.

This week will be interesting at #CSG there will be a "Dance of the launchers" Ariane 5 #VA243 will move from BAF to ZL3 so our Ariane 5 #VA244 can move from BIL to BAF, after which #VA243 can move back into BIL, at the same time the Vega P80 stage for #VV12 will move to ZLV

  • Description

    At the Airbus Defence and Space facility in Toulouse, France, ESA’s Aeolus wind satellite has been prepared for its launch on top of a Vega rocket from Kourou in French Guiana. Liftoff is currently scheduled for August. The development of this latest Earth Explorer started 16 years ago and has now finished.

    From orbit Aeolus will measure wind profiles on a global scale using a pioneering laser technology. These measurements will greatly benefit existing meteorological models and fill a gap in the observations of wind.


Aeolus arrives

6 July 2018
Having set sail fr om France on 15 June - Global Wind Day, ESA’s Aeolus wind satellite has arrived safe and sound at the launch site in French Guiana.

While almost all satellites travel by aircraft, Aeolus’ journey was rather different – it travelled all the way across the Atlantic from Saint Nazare, western France to the Port of Cayenne, French Guiana by ship.

Aeolus carries one of the most sophisticated instruments ever to be put into orbit. A 12-day journey was undertaken to avoid potential damage caused by air re-pressurisation during descent had the satellite travelled by air – a quicker but decidedly riskier option.

Upon its long-awaited arrival, the team unloaded Aeolus and its support equipment. The containers were then carefully positioned on a truck to be transported to the launch site about 60 km away, wh ere the satellite container was moved into the airlock, to stabilise after its long journey.
