Artemis VNR

Watch in









Artemis, the Advanced Data-Relay and Technology Mission Satellite, is the latest and most sophisticated telecommunications satellite to be developed by ESA. Equipped with sophisticated radio systems, Artemis will also use laser systems to transmit data directly between satellites. It is expected that a Japanese H2A rocket will push Artemis into orbit by February of the year 2000.
This video is organised as follows:
ARTEMIS STORY, including: animation sequences of the craft in Earth orbit; construction and testing (shaking) of satellite at ESTEC; NASDA (National Space Development Agency of Japan) pictures of Japanese rocket launch; graphics of launch sequence; Fucino ground station; general transport pictures (lorries, train, ferry etc.), laptop computer in lorry; graphics to illustrate satellite communications 'footprints' over globe; Envisat graphics to illustrate signal loss with ""direct line of site' transmission to ground station; graphics to show how laser link between Envisat and Artemis will allow
