Bartolomeo’s Experimental Modules

The Bartolomeo platform can accommodate up to 12 different experiment modules, supplying them with power and providing data transmission to Earth. Bartolomeo is suitable for many kinds of experiments, including Earth observation, environmental and climate research, robotics, material sciences and astrophysics.

Desirable Payload Capabilities

Bartolomeo can be a cost and time-efficient alternative to small satellites and CubeSats. It provides sought-after payload-hosting capabilities for customers and researchers to test space technologies, verify a new space business approach, conduct microgravity experiments, or enter into in-space manufacturing endeavors. Launch opportunities are available on service missions to the ISS every three months. The payload accommodation allows slots for a wide range of payload mass, from 11 to 990 pounds. Airbus will provide optical data downlink capacity of one to two terabytes per day.

Cost Savings & Reduced Lead Times

In just 12 months, any payload can be prepared and ready to operate. Payload sizes, interfaces, preparation before launch and integration process are mostly standardized. These effectively reduce lead times and saves costs significantly compared to traditional mission costs.

All-In-One Mission Service

Airbus offers this easy access to space as an all-in-one mission service. This includes technical support in preparing the payload, launch and installation; operations and data transfer; and an optional return to Earth.
