Astrium offers easier access to space technologies

Toulouse, France: With its new “YourSpaceAvenue” website (https://www.yourspaceavenue.com), Astrium and its partners now offer a comprehensive and adaptable solution to access space technologies. By broadening the space technology offering, “YourSpaceAvenue” will help convince new users of its effectiveness. Astrium will be presenting the “YourSpaceAvenue” concept at its stand at the Paris Air Show on June 21, 2011.

“YourSpaceAvenue” is a joint programme that brings together the major players in the infrastructure and space services sectors in France’s Midi-Pyrénées region, Europe’s number one centre of excellence for space technology. Overseen by Astrium and developed in cooperation with CNES, the offer brings together the Observatoire Midi-Pyrénées, the “Institut Supérieur de l’Aéronautique et de l’Espace” (ISAE), Steel, BTS Industrie, Atos Origin, Cassidian, Capgemini, LATecis, CS and Magellium. It also includes service providers from the region and is open to other partners.

The “YourSpaceAvenue” offer is a solution that will provide personalised access to space technologies in the microsatellite product range up to 130 kg. The project is based on the Myriade microsatellite programme.

Jean Dauphin, Astrium France’s Director of Earth Observation and Science said, “YourSpaceAvenue offers space solutions to those who thought space was inaccessible. By using existing technology, by enabling customers to tailor services to their specific needs and giving users control of their own operations without them having to master the more complex aspects of space technology, we will open doors to new customers from the scientific community and service providers.”
