CNES: Myriade / EADS Astrium → Airbus Defence and Space: AstroSat-100


Myriade is the name given to a micro-satellite product line being developed jointly by Astrium and the French Space Agency CNES since 1998. The Myriade program is principally designed for scientific, application and technology missions, in response to increasing demand from the scientific community for quicker, cheaper access to space, with the accent on enhanced payload capacity in terms of mass, power, pointing accuracy, telemetry and processing and orbit control propulsion. The program is also envisaged for institutional or export opportunities. The first mission flying this platform will be CNES' scientific microsat DEMETER in 2004, followed by the French MoD system for electro-magnetic environment analysis, Essaim, scheduled for launch in 2004.

Astrium is working in collaboration with the French space agency CNES to develop the Myriade micro-satellite product line. CNES missions are manufactured in-house by CNES, while commercial and other governmental missions are produced by Astrium. Astrium offers the Myriade bus commercially under the name AstroSat-100.
