Les Mureaux is the heart of European launcher systems development and integration. This is there where the first stage of Ariane 5 has been developed and is now manufactured. It is capable of carrying 150 tons of cryogenic propellant and burning it to boost the launcher upper stage and its payload into space. Besides manufacturing the Ariane 5 first stage, the design offices based in Les Mureaux are responsible for designing the space launch vehicles, spacecraft such as the Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV) and other space equipment for satellites. The new Ariane 6 launch vehicle is currently developed in Les Mureaux and its first stage will be assembled and integrated there in a near future.
