We’re getting closer to the launch!
The #PléiadesNeo satellite has been mated on the Payload Adapter and encapsulated under Vega’s fairing.
Pléiades Neo: Just 1 week until the launch! Get ready!
Pléiades Neo satellites are ready for launch at the European Space Center in Kourou.
The launch is now scheduled on 27 April on a Vega launcher!
Get ready, Pléiades Neo is coming this month !
Thanks to Pléiades Neo, you will see the world like never before. Get very high resolution imagery and see every detail from a safe distance.
Pléiades Neo Satellites Arrive in Kourou for Launch
The first two Airbus-built Pléiades Neo imaging satellites have arrived at Cayenne airport, French Guiana and are now en route to the European Space Centre in Kourou. Scheduled to launch in April 2021 on a Vega launcher, Pléiades Neo 3, the first of the new generation of very high-resolution satellites will join the existing Airbus fleet of optical and radar satellites, with increased resolution, revisit and coverage. It will be closely followed by its twin, Pléiades Neo 4, also scheduled for launch on a Vega rocket a few weeks later.
Ready for the Close Up ?
Pléiades Neo is coming on 20th April : see the details and don’t miss anything with the upcoming world-first constellation of four identical 30 cm satellites.
