In total 134 satellites and 26 piggyback payloads have been put into orbit. 1999: The first commercial use of the Ariane 5 takes place with the launch of the X-ray satellite XMM. 7 t in total. Up to then, 116 Ariane launchers had put more than 400 t of satellite payload into orbit from Kourou.

In addition to other systems the European Galileo navigation system will gain outstanding significance as a commercial system. Earth observation, technology testing and weather observation. However, the employed spacecraft differ in data protection (encoding), general secrecy and in many cases hardening against electromagnetic interference. In addition, there may be a small number of satellites with interfering or destructive functions. This huge variety of military spacecraft results in an equally high variety of spacecraft and orbits.

18: The satellites of the German SAR-Lupe constellation used for radar intelligence (Source: OHB System). missions to the Moon. Over the decades dozens of space probes have flown to all planets (except Pluto) as well as to many asteroids and comets. In many cases these were not only fly-bys but even orbiting and landing missions. For instance, robotic vehicles have been deployed on Mars, or cometary material has been returned to Earth. Special challenges of interplanetary space flight are significant signal latency (up to hours in the outer Solar System), long flight time, and navigation.
