Antwerp Space is delivering contributions to many different space missions, going from near earth orbits to far away planets. With different objectives, ranging from scientific-, meteorology-, navigation-, exploration to human space flight missions.
JUpiter ICy Moons Explorer
A thorough investigation of the Jovian system in all its complexity with emphasis on three of its largest moons: Ganymede, Europa and Callisto, including two of them’s potential habitability.
ARGO is a highly innovative modem currently developed by Antwerp Space. MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd. (MDA) will integrate this modem into a space-borne new-generation communication terminal.
Multi Purpose Crew Vehicle
A spacecraft for future manned missions to destinations beyond low Earth orbits such as a lunar orbit, near-Earth objects and Mars. It comprises a service module that will provide essential support functions to the crew module and its four astronauts.
Meteosat Third Generation
An operational satellite system able to support accurate prediction of meteorological phenomena and the monitoring of climate and air composition through operational applications.
A mission dedicated to solar and heliospheric physics. The programme outlines key scientific questions which need to be answered about the development of planets and the emergence of life, how the Solar System works, the origins of the Universe, and the fundamental physics at work in the Universe.
Galileo is Europe’s Global Satellite Navigation System (GNSS), providing improved positioning and timing information making Europe’s roads and railways safer and more efficient, increasing the efficiency of emergency response-services, boosting European innovation and contributing to the creation of many new products and services for agriculture and other sectors.
Automated Transfer Vehicle
The Automated Transfer Vehicle, originally Ariane Transfer Vehicle or ATV, was an expendable cargo spacecraft developed by the European Space Agency (ESA). It was operated in conjunction with the Ariane 5 heavy-lift launch vehicle, which conveyed the ATV into orbit.
