- Following the excitement of the Curiosity rover, Thales Alenia Space is prime contractor on the ExoMars mission, which aims to study the Martian environment, atmosphere and soil. This mission will generate a mother lode of data, feeding researchers for many years to come.
An acknowledged expert in very-high-resolution optical instruments, Thales Alenia Space is increasing its production capacity and introducing new products to meet the needs of a booming global market, as shown by its recent win of the United Arab Emirates' Falcon Eye contract.
- As the name indicates, SWOT (Surface Water and Ocean Topography) is designed to study ocean topography and surface water on the continents. SWOT is a follow-on to the Jason-1, 2 and 3 missions, with unprecedented technological innovations in altimetry.
- Ten years ago, the Thales Alenia Space-built Huygens space probe landed on Titan!
- 10 contracts/10 successful/ launches for Thales Alenia Space in 2014/ 10 satellites in Cannes' clean rooms.
The European space probe Rosetta is scheduled to land on comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko on 12 November this year. We take a look at an epic story of interplanetary space travel that will have lasted more than a decade.
- Thales Alenia Space España plays a key role in the European Space Agency's Copernicus program.
Within the framework of the exploration program ExoMars, Thales Alenia Space developed an inflatable device capable of collecting extraterrestrial samples.
Thales Alenia Space-built Sentinel-1A, the first satellite in Europe's Copernicus program, successfully launched
- The StratoBus project may immediately call to mind Google's Project Loon. But the advantage of StratoBus is that it offers long endurance and complete autonomy from a fixed position, while the high-altitude balloons in Loon move around the Earth and will offer only limited autonomy.
From a stratospheric multi-mission platform midway between a satellite and a UAV to inflatable capture mechanisms for recovering samples from another planet or smart telecommunications antennas, Thales Alenia Space is anticipating the needs of the future and developing solutions to meet them.
