ALTAIR featured in Aviation Week & Space Technology.
The number one aerospace publication in the world, Aviation Week & Space Technology, has published an article on our project! It recalls that the ALTAIR project focuses on an innovative solution four launching space satellites in the 50-150 kg range into low Earth orbit at altitudes between 400 and 1000 km and that the European Commission is financing this project to demonstrate the feasibility of developing a low-cost, reusable smallsat launch system. Over the next five years, more than 500 small satellites are expected to be built and launched globally, a market with a combined value greater than $7 billion, according to Paris-based Euroconsult. Thus, ALTAIR project has already started to get visibility in the medias.
