French satellite CSO-1 in Soyuz rocket
Arianespace will end the ceasefire of one year with the Russian rocket Soyuz to launch a satellite-based satellite observation at the Guyana Space Center in South America.
The satellite, called CSO-1, is the dissemination of the French defense and security applications.
The mission is the starting point for the Soyuz booster rocket 20 in the space space in Europe, since the agreement between the Arianespace and the Russian government in 2011 to supply Russian rocket bunkers for the launch of a medium-sized leasing vehicle. .
The IST will be launched at 6.07. It will be played live at Arianespace YouTube channel.
Classified satellite spy on the Delta IV rocket
The launching expedition will launch the United States National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) United Launch Alliance's satellite-based satellite space.
In any case, the role of NROL-71 was the first attempt in the last week, after the detection of computer problems after the trigger sequence began in the last few seconds.
The second attempt will be Wednesday, at 7:27 a.m., at IST (8:57 p.m.) at the Vandenberg Air Force Base in the Delta IV Heavy in California. But the weather conditions may not start this time around, report here ArsTechnina say
It will be launched live by Launch Alliance YouTube channel From 7 in the morning at IST Wednesday morning.
GSAT-7A GSLV-F11 satellite communications in India
The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) launches the latest GSAT-7A military satellite communication on the Indian Air Force (IAF) and the Navy on Wednesday.
GSAT-7A is expected to make new and better communication capabilities with IAF and in different ways. It will allow it Early radar stations, airbases and warning systems and Early Control System (AWACS) cross-connectivity aircraft. The satellite will also foster the war-fighting capabilities of the Air Force networks, increasing their power to operate in its global manual.
They also want to boost the drone operations of the armed forces, when the Army helps ground-based control stations to offer a better range and endurance for satellite-controlled air conditioning vehicles (UAV) say Business Standard.
The satellite will be launched through ISRO's GSLV-F11 rocket at Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sri Lanka.
The launch schedule is 4.10 in the morning at IST Wednesday, and will be played live at DD National Youtube channel and ISRO's wesbite.
