On 21st August 2018, from the AirbusArianespaceESA- European Space Agency– French Guiana, it is the twelfth flight of the Vega Carrier Rocket, it which it’s the fifth launch for the year….  The Vega Carrier Rocket carries with a scientific payload with weather instrumentation for advance weather forecasting… also flight VV12 is the demonstration flight in enhancing the Vega Carrier Rocket versatility also it adaptive to various mission specifications …

Launching from the Vega Launch Complex, on 21st August 2018, with the launch window time of 0620 Hours local time in the morning..  in which the mission launch duration from launch towards deployment of the payload satellite is fifty five minutes and fifty seven seconds..

Manufactured by Airbus Defense and Space, with an operational life cycle of three years and three months based on Mars Express Design satellite platform in which that platform was modified towards weather forecasting specifications with the aspects of high data gathering of long term research of studying This Planet Earth’s atmosphere utilizing various instrumentation with a Doppler wind LIDAR called Aladin (Atmospheric LAser Doppler INstrument) – an advanced laser system designed to timely and accurately measure global wind-profiles from space. Aeolus will probe the atmosphere with pioneering ultraviolet laser pulses, which will enhance the understanding of tropical dynamics and processes relevant to climate variability.
