Currently in its initial stages of technological development, Vega E will be the ideal product for small satellites, starting in 2024. Thanks to its innovative three-stage architecture with revolutionary liquid oxygen/methane engine for the upper stage, it will be capable of releasing multiple satellites into different orbits during a single mission at a competitive cost, while maintaining the remarkable reliability and precision standards of the Vega family.
Its development goals are:
- Increased flexibility (performance compatible with over 90% of Payloads) and enhanced operational versatility (performance compatible with over 70% of Payloads in a multiple launch) of the Vega Launcher on the LEO market
- The use of a new generation of “green” fuels
