Abstract

To meet the demaands of a changing market ARIANE % will evolve with the development of the cryogenic upper stage ESC-B, powered by the new Vinci engine. Vinci is an expander cycle-type engine. The expander cycle design provides high performance and reliability at low cost, while also giving the new upper stage multiple restart capability. An extendable nozzle will give Vinci a specific impulse of 464 sec in vacuum. The decision of CNES was to use the test facility P4.1 at DLR test center Lampoldshausen for engine stage test and the test facility PF52 at SNECMA test cneter in Vernon for engine tests.
