Alain Charmeau, CEO/President of Airbus Safran Launchers (ASL) and Gaele Winters, ESA’s Director of Launchers signed a contract for the development of the Ariane 6 new‑generation launcher, on 12 August 2015, at ESA’s Paris Head Office.
Ariane’s modular approach will offer either two boosters (Ariane 62) or four boosters (Ariane 64), depending on the required performance.
The site of the launch pad for Ariane 6 at Europe’s Spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana has been chosen, and prime contractor CNES is already excavating the site. The new complex will also include facilities for preparing the launcher.
