Description: The EADS Astrium Ariane 6 is a new generation space launch system leveraging technologies from the Ariane 5 ME launcher and slated to enter service after 2020 operated by the European Space Agency (ESA). Ariane 6 will be a modular rocket with a payload capacity of 3 to 6.5 metric tons in geostationary orbit. Dubbed PPH, the launcher's configuration comprises two lower stages in which solid propellant is used and a cryogenic upper stage powered by a Vinci re-startable engine, developed by Snecma. Astrium was awarded the contract for the study phase and design of the Ariane 6 launcher on January 30, 2013. The new space launch system will be available in two versions: Ariane 62, with two solid propellant strap-on boosters and Ariane 64, with four solid-propellant strap-on boosters.
