ACCESS TO SPACE

Without rockets, no space activity would be possible. No satellites providing all the benefits we now take for granted in our daily lives – telecommunications, images of the Earth with their myriad applications, long-range weather forecasting, precise location devices … No space adventure, no man on the moon, no exploring our planetary neighbours …

Airbus Defence and Space plays a crucial role in ensuring that Europe has independent and competitive access to space by designing, developing and building today’s Ariane 5 rocket and the future launch systems of tomorrow.
