Micro-satellite product line developed jointly by EADS Astrium and the French Space Agency CNES beginning in 1998.

AKA: AstroSat;AstroSat-100;Elisa;Essaim;Parasol;Picard;VNREDSAT. Status: Operational 2004. First Launch: 2004-12-18. Last Launch: 2013-05-07. Number: 15 . Gross mass: 125 kg (275 lb).

The Myriade program was principally designed for scientific, application and technology missions, in response to increasing demand from the scientific community for quicker, cheaper access to space, with the accent on enhanced payload capacity in terms of mass, power, pointing accuracy, telemetry and processing and orbit control propulsion. The program was also envisaged for institutional or export opportunities. The first mission flying this platform was CNES' scientific microsat Demeter, launched in June 2004, followed by the French MoD system for electro-magnetic environment analysis, Essaim.
