Taranis satellite propulsion module with its thermal insulation has just been received (May 2014) by CNES integration teams. This module is a direct inheritance from the Myriade series but the plateau on which it is mounted is completely new. This pannel is also the interface with the launcher and has been completely redefined to be part of a new structure that can hold satellites weighting about 200 kg.
