Astrium Launch Campaign

For launch campaigns spacecraft are distributed to launch sites worldwide including French Guiana, Kazakhstan and Cape Canaveral. On several occasions each year Toulouse based transport specialists Chabrillac were challenged with delivering the cargoes to BLAGNAC Airport for onward transportation.

Originating in Toulouse the spacecraft, loaded to specially designed containers, may only need to make the short journey to the airport, but the overall 32.6m (L) x5.6m (W) x 4.7m (H) dimensions of the convoy would prove challenging. After undertaking route surveys and extensive planning Chabrillac identified the most suitable route, and, utilising a 3+2 axle bespoke modular trailer, effectively managed the project. Each container, and its accompanying equipment (lifting beam, ground control equipment) are safely transported to the awaiting Antonov 124 Aircraft for onward delivery to launch site.

For over 50 years Airbus Defence & Space have been a global leader in space systems manufacturing, building 900 satellites for the largest ever constellation and launching over 100 telecom & almost 50 Earth observation satellites.
