Astrium sends the ATV Johannes Kepler on its way to the International Space Station 2011.02.19

Kourou - February 16, 2011 - At 9:50 p.m. (GMT), Ariane 5 launched the ATV Johannes Kepler into orbit. Weighing in at 20.1 tonnes, this second ATV (Automated Transfer Vehicle) is the heaviest object to be launched into space by an Ariane 5.

The Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV) is not only the biggest, most complex spacecraft ever developed and built in Europe, but is also the first vehicle in the world designed to execute rendez-vous and operational docking in fully automated mode. Despite its mass of nearly 20 tonnes and 22 metre span, the ATV is so precise that it can dock autonomously with the International Space Station (ISS) at a speed of 28,000 km/h and with a precision of less than 10 cm. Launched by a specially adapted version of the Ariane rocket, this technological jewel carries over seven tonnes of freight to the ISS.

Alain Charmeau, CEO of Astrium Space Transportation
, recently confirmed that
“the re-ignitable upper stage has perfectly positioned the ATV in its intended orbit.”

ACES contract signature. Alain Charmeau (L), CEO of Astrium Space Transportation, Michael Menking (C), Director of Orbital Systems at Astrium Space Transportation and Simonetta di Pippo (R), ESA Director for Human Space Flight, have signed a contract for the full development of the Atomic Clock Ensemble in Space (ACES) for the International Space Station (ISS).

Alain Charmeau
went on to express his delight with this latest successful launch:
“This is the biggest event in space this year, and we have the teams at Astrium to thank for it. It was also the 42nd successful launch in a row for Ariane 5, for which Astrium is prime contractor. Today, we celebrate two major accomplishments for Astrium: the 200th flight of an Ariane, and the launch of a second ATV on a pre-programmed route to the International Space Station. Both these major programs conducted by the European space industry are under Astrium’s responsibility. Both make use of the most cutting-edge technology that currently exists. And both are made possible by government support.”

The mission of the ATV Johannes Kepler
has only begun, as it will soon be embarking on the complicated phase when it will rendezvous with the International Space Station (ISS) and perform a docking manoeuvre.

At that point, the ATV will become a fully integrated, inhabited module of the ISS.

The Johannes Kepler is the first of four series-produced ATVs ordered from Astrium by the European Space Agency (ESA).

“The ATV 3 ‘Edoardo Amaldi’ has already made significant progress. We have also begun work on the ATV 4, and the initial structures of the ATV 5 have been delivered. We have also submitted an offer to ESA for other ATVs. We hope to get the green light for these projects this year if the decision is confirmed to extend the International Space Station programme to the year 2020,”
said Mr. Charmeau.

But the adventure in space has just begun for Europe.

“We must build on the enormous amount of skills acquired by European industry and by Astrium in the ATV programme to develop Europe’s future space programs,” concluded Mr. Charmeau.
