Overview

Destination: Low Earth Orbit
Mission: Test Flight

Low Earth Orbit Launch Area 6A RAAF Woomera Range Complex

STV (Satellite Test Vehicle) was a series of vehicle evaluation payloads built for the test flights of the Europa-1 rocket.

Europa I

Family: Europa
Configuration: I

The Europa rocket was an early expendable launch system of the European Launcher Development Organisation (ELDO), which was the precursor to the European Space Agency (ESA). It was developed with the aim to delivering space access technology, and more specifically to facilitate the deployment of European-wide telecommunication and meteorological satellites into orbit.
