Airbus: successful trials for Aeolus Satellite

(CercleFinance.com) - Airbus has announced that Airbus' Aeolus satellite has successfully completed its tests in Liège, Belgium, and has arrived in Toulouse for its final tests.

“Aeolus will be the first satellite capable of performing global wind-component-profile observation on a daily basis in near real-time,” the group said.

The satellite has “successfully completed an extensive thermal and functional performance test campaign under in-orbit conditions".

In the summer it will be transferred to Guyana for its launch aboard a Vega rocket.
