The payload fairing, mounted on the nose of the launch vehicle, protects satellites on the launch pad and during the initial trajectory through the Earth’s atmosphere.
It is produced by RUAG Space, which is the world’s leading supplier of payload fairings made of composite materials.
Arianespace’s Ariane 5 is the world reference for heavy-lift launchers, able to carry payloads weighing more than 10 metric tons to geostationary transfer orbit (GTO) and over 20 metric tons into low-Earth orbit (LEO) – with a high degree of accuracy mission after mission.
This performance ensures that Ariane 5 will be able to loft the heaviest spacecraft either in production or on the drawing boards, and enables Arianespace to match up most telecommunications satellites for highly efficient dual launches – a capability that has been proven by the company in Ariane-series missions since the 1980s.
To streamline the assembly process, Ariane 5’s vehicle equipment bay and ESC-A cryogenic upper stage are installed as a single unit atop its cryogenic core stage.
