Support to ESA's Aeolus mission
2018-10-29
On 22 August 2018 at 21:20 UTC, Aeolus was launched from Kourou, French Guiana. The successful LEOP was completed earlier than planned. Three LSE Spacecraft Operations Engineers are supporting the mission as members of the ESA Flight Control Team based at ESA's Control Centre Darmstadt, Germany. One LSE Space Simulations Officer was in charge for the Teams' training and two Flight Dynamics Engineers are dedicated to the Aeouls flight dynamics.

SSC supported the LEOP with its Grund Stations Network, using the antennas in Inuvik and the ESA Kiruna Station. The ESA Kiruna Station will also provide routine TT&C support for the Aeolus satellite. 

This ESA mission has proven to be very successful from the very first days and its instruments are already sending many valuable data. Read more.
