The S2 and S3 segments (the metallic component is manufactured by MT Aerospace) once thermally protected (at Colleferro), are then shipped to French Guiana where they are each loaded with 107 tons of solid propellant by the Regulus company (joint venture 60% Avio and 40% Ariane Group). All the segments are then integrated by Europropulsion, a company equally shared by Avio and Ariane Group and assembled with the igniter and the nozzle by ASL.
