This launch configuration involves only one spacecraft aboard Vega C, using an off-the-shelf adapter.
This versatile and cost-effective launcher is equipped with a larger fairing that has an increased payload envelope to accommodate larger satellites. It will be suitable for Earth observation satellites up to 2,300 kg. The payload capacity to Sun-synchronous Earth orbit at 700 km will increase from about 1,500 kg with the current Vega configuration to 2,300 kg on Vega C.
Arianespace provides the best possible solution for small and medium spacecraft needing a wide range of orbits (Sun- synchronous, ballistic, transfer to the Lagrange point L1, etc.), for Earth observation, science, education, defense and other applications.
