Quotes

Michel de Rosen, Eutelsat Chairman and CEO, said: "With the allocation of the contracts to manufacture and launch EUTELSAT 172B awarded to Airbus Defence and Space and Arianespace, we are placing our trust once again in two industry leaders who understand our rigour and high expectations. Through a combination of three distinct payloads, electric propulsion and dynamic power distribution, EUTELSAT 172B reflects our commitment to innovations that benefit our customers and raises the game for the satellite business."
"This objective is without alternative for me - either, we fundamentally drive change in this sector or we risk becoming irrelevant very soon."
Following the announcement of ATV-5 orbital injection, Stéphane Israël, Chairman and CEO of Arianespace, said: "We are extremely proud of this successful ATV mission, a strong symbol of Europe's role in this major international program, thanks to two flagship products from our space industry, Ariane 5 and the ATV. I would like to thank our customer, the European Space Agency, for continuing to express its trust in Arianespace, within the scope of our original mandate, namely to guarantee independent access to Space for Europe."
...to give you idea, because it's very complex to have an automatic docking," said Eric Beranger, head of space programs at Airbus Defence and Space. "You need to anticipate all possible mishaps using sensors, and yet be able not to lose track of your target and be able to dock. This software onboard ATV is able to dock with a precision within 6 centimeters (2.4 inches). It gives you an idea at 28,000 kilometers per hour (17,400 mph). On top of that, this ATV will be the heaviest ever launched -- more than 20 [metric] tons."
