Here are all the possible meanings and translations of the word automated transfer vehicle.


  1. Automated Transfer Vehicle

    The Automated Transfer Vehicle or ATV is an expendable, unmanned resupply spacecraft developed by the European Space Agency. ATVs are designed to supply the International Space Station with propellant, water, air, payloads, and experiments. ATVs can also reboost the station into a higher orbit. Four ATVs, Jules Verne, Johannes Kepler, Edoardo Amaldi and Albert Einstein, have been launched since March 2008. ESA has contracted suppliers to produce one more ATV to be flown before 2015. On 2 April 2012 the ESA announced that the ATV program would end after the fifth ATV is launched in 2014. Further developments of the ATV have been studied by the European Space Agency and EADS Astrium. ESA member states decided in 2012 that the ATV would be adapted to serve as the service module of the NASA Orion spacecraft. In January 2013, the ESA and NASA announced the combined Orion and ATV derived service module.
