Raptem 23. Pewnie, że na oko dużo, ale część z nich przejechała w ostatnim czasie z czerwca, a podobna ilość zapewne przejedzie z lipca na sierpień.

To chyba tradycyjna sytuacja: jest zjazd z poprzednich miesięcy, a potem w trakcie miesiąca następują dalsze opóźnienia. I tak się "nagle" z 23 startów zrobi pięć... :D

Teraz zauważyłem, że na 15 lipca 2020 zaplanowano start rakiety Minotaur-4. Ostatni raz chyba wystartowała w 2017 roku.

Coś więcej wiadomo o tym starcie?

TAIYUAN, July 3 (Xinhua) -- China successfully sent a high-resolution multi-mode imaging satellite into the planned orbit from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center in north China's Shanxi Province Friday.

The satellite was launched by a Long March-4B carrier rocket at 11:10 a.m. (Beijing Time), according to the China National Space Administration.

(http://www.xinhuanet.com/english/2020-07/03/139186037_15937637588351n.jpg)

The satellite is a civil-use optical remote-sensing satellite with a resolution up to the sub-meter level. It will operate in Sun-synchronous orbit.

It can provide high-precision remote-sensing image data for several industries including surveying and mapping, natural resources, emergency management, agriculture, ecological environment, residential construction and forestry.

Another satellite designed to popularize space science among teenagers was also launched in the mission. It will carry out science experiments such as image and voice data transmission.

(http://www.xinhuanet.com/english/2020-07/03/139186037_15937637588511n.jpg)

Both satellites were developed by the China Academy of Space Technology.

Friday's launch was the 337th by the Long March rocket series. Enditem

Chinese launches loft satellites to study space environment and observe Earth
July 6, 2020 Stephen Clark

China launched a Long March 2D rocket Saturday with a satellite Chinese officials claimed will study the space environment and conduct technology demonstrations, less than two days after a Long March 4B rocket took off from a different launch site with an Earth-imaging payload.

The missions marked China’s 16th and 17th orbital-class launches this year. Two of the launches earlier this year failed to reach orbit with their payloads.

The Long March 4B launch occurred at 0310 GMT July 3 (11:10 p.m. EDT July 2) from the Taiyuan space center, located in Shanxi province in northern China. The country’s state-owned Xinhua news agency described the mission’s primary payload as a  “high-resolution multi-mode imaging satellite.”

The satellite is believed to be part of China’s civilian-focused Gaofen series of Earth-imaging satellites. A secondary payload deployed by the Long March 4B rocket was a CubeSat developed by Chinese students.

The three-stage, liquid-fueled Long March 4B launcher delivered the two satellites to a polar, sun-synchronous orbit at an altitude around 400 miles (640 kilometers) above Earth. (...)

JIUQUAN, July 5 (Xinhua) -- China successfully sent a satellite for space environment study and related technology experiments into the planned orbit from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in northwest China on Sunday.

The satellite, the second of the Shiyan-6 series, was launched by a Long March-2D carrier rocket at 7:44 a.m. (Beijing Time), according to the center.

Chinese launches loft satellites to study space environment and observe Earth
July 6, 2020 Stephen Clark

(...)
A two-stage Long March 2D rocket took off from the Jiuquan space base Sunday — Chinese time — with China’s second Shiyan 6-series tech demo and research satellite, Xinhua said.

The Long March 2D blasted off at 2344 GMT (7:44 p.m. EDT) Saturday — or at 7:44 a.m. Beijing time Sunday — with some 650,000 pounds of thrust from its hydrazine-burning main engines. Less than 15 minutes later, the rocket delivered the Shiyan 6 spacecraft to an orbit at an altitude of around 435 miles (700 kilometers).

Xinhua said the second Shiyan 6 satellite has a mission to study the environment and conduct “related technology experiments.”

China launched the first Shiyan 6 satellite in November 2018. The Shiyan family of Chinese satellites are designed for technology demonstrations. Shiyan means “experiment” in Chinese.

Start rakiety Shavit-2 - 6 lipca 2020 / Credits - Ministerstwo Obrony Narodowej Izraela

(...) Przeznaczenie Ofeq-16 jest wojskowe. Z tego też powodu Izrael “do ostatniej chwili” wstrzymywał się z informacją o próbie startu. Z dostępnych informacji wynika, że jest to satelita zwiadu optycznego, o masie startowej około 400-450 kg. Jest to satelita podobny (lub taki sam) do Ofeq-11. Satelita ma mieć maksymalną rozdzielczość przestrzenną około 0,5 metra. (...)

Warto tutaj zauważyć, że z uwagi na kwestie geopolityczne starty z Izraela mogą odbywać się jedynie w kierunku zachodnim, nad Morze Śródziemne. Taka trajektoria wymusza używanie tzw. orbit wstecznych, na których satelity poruszają się w ruchu przeciwnym do do ruchu obrotowego Ziemi. Takie orbity są trudniejsze do osiągnięcia pod względem energetycznym, co ogranicza zdolności rakiet nośnych. (...)

Israel launches reconnaissance satellite

WASHINGTON — Israel launched the latest in a series of reconnaissance satellites July 5 on the country’s Shavit rocket.

In a July 6 statement, Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) and the Israeli Ministry of Defense announced the successful launch of the Ofek 16 satellite. The satellite launched on a Shavit rocket that lifted off at 9:00 p.m. Eastern July 5 (4:00 a.m. July 6 local time) from the Palmachim air base in central Israel.

According to the statement, Ofek 16 reached orbit successfully and is in communication with controllers. In-orbit testing of the satellite is underway to check out the satellite before putting it into service.

Ofek 16 is described as an electro-optical reconnaissance satellite “with advanced capabilities.” IAI, which built both the satellite and the Shavit launch vehicle, didn’t describe what those advanced capabilities are. Previous versions of the Ofek satellite are believed to produce imagery at a resolution of half a meter or better.

The satellite is the latest in a series of Israeli optical and radar reconnaissance satellites, built and launched in the country, dating back a quarter-century. The previous satellite in the Ofek series, Ofek 11, launched in September 2016. It’s not clear why there is a gap in the numbering scheme.

“Technological superiority and intelligence capabilities are essential to the security of the State of Israel,” Benny Gantz, Israeli defense minister, said in the statement, calling the launch an “extraordinary achievement” for the country’s defense industry.

This was also the first launch since 2016 of the Shavit, a solid-fuel rocket built by IAI and based on technologies developed for ballistic missiles. Shavit can place up to 380 kilograms into orbit launching from Palmachim, its performance penalized for having to launch to the west, against the rotation of the Earth, so that its trajectory takes it out over the Mediterranean Sea.

Israel successfully places surveillance satellite into orbit

(...) Israeli officials did not release orbital parameters for the Ofek 16 satellite, but previous Shavit launches deployed their payloads into orbits several hundred miles above Earth with inclinations of around 143 degrees. Satellites in such retrograde orbits fly around Earth in the opposite direction of the planet’s rotation. (...)

Ofek 16 is the latest in a series of military-operated spy satellites launched by Israel since 1988. Monday’s launch was the 11th flight of a Shavit rocket, and nine of the rocket flights have been successful.

“We do not let go of our security efforts for a moment,” tweeted Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu. “The success of the Ofek 16 satellite greatly increases our capabilities to work against Israeli enemies, close enemies and distant enemies alike. It greatly expands our capabilities to operate at sea, land, air and space.”

The launch of Ofek 16 marked the first launch of a satellite aboard an Israeli rocket since September 2016, when Israel sent the Ofek 11 spacecraft into orbit. It was the fourth launch of an Israeli satellite on a domestically-produced rocket since 2010.

Israeli officials did not explain the reason for the jump in names from Ofek 11 to Ofek 16. Ofek means “horizon” in Hebrew.

XICHANG, July 9 (Xinhua) -- China successfully sent a commercial telecommunication satellite, known as APSTAR-6D, into a planned orbit from the southwestern Xichang Satellite Launch Center on Thursday.

The APSTAR-6D telecommunication satellite was launched by a Long March-3B carrier rocket at 8:11 p.m. (Beijing Time), according to the center.

The satellite was developed by the China Academy of Space Technology, a subsidiary of China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation.

It was purchased by the APT Mobile SatCom Limited to provide satellite broadband telecommunication services for airborne, shipborne, vehicle-borne, and other mobile communication applications.

Thursday's launch was the 339th by the Long March rocket series. Enditem

(...) Apstar 6D carries Ku-band and Ka-band communications payloads, including 90 Ku-band user beams to connect with customers and eight Ka-band gateway beams, according to CGWIC. The satellite will be positioned in geostationary orbit at 134 degrees east longitude, with a coverage area stretching from the eastern Indian Ocean to the western Pacific Ocean.

The spacecraft will serve Chinese airlines, maritime companies, and support emergency response and disaster relief agencies, officials said.

APT Satellite said the Apstar 6D satellite has a total throughput capacity of 50 gigabits per second, and has the ability to route more than 1 gigabit per second of data through a single beam. The satellite can generate up to 14.4 kilowatts of power.

APT Mobile Satcom Ltd. ordered the Apstar 6D satellite from the Chinese contractor in 2016. APT Mobile says the satellite is the first of up to four geostationary broadband satellites it plans to build and launch to create a global network, but the company has not announced firm contracts for follow-on spacecraft.

(...) Apstar-6D was ordered in 2016 by APT Mobile SatCom Limited, a company that APT Satellite of Hong Kong helped form that same year with institutions in mainland China. APT Mobile has described Apstar-6D as the first of a global system of three or four satellites for broadband connectivity to aircraft, ships and remote locations. Progress beyond the first satellite has been slow, however.

Huang Baozhong, executive vice president of APT Satellite, described the global system as a “long term plan” at the World Satellite Business Week conference in Paris last September. (...)

(...) Rakieta KZ-11 to część rodziny chińskich rakiet KZ (Kuaizhou), z której dotychczas wystartowały najmniejsze rakiety KZ-1 i KZ-1A. KZ-11 jest nieco większą konstrukcją, zdolną do wynoszenia około 1500 kg na niską orbitę okołoziemską. Prace nad KZ-11 rozpoczęły się w 2015 roku. Rakiety rodziny KZ są oferowane przez chińską spółkę ExPace, w której udziały ma chińska rządowa spółka CASIC. (...)

Był to już szósty nieudany start rakiety orbitalnej w 2020 roku. Łącznie z tym startem dotychczas zawodziły trzy razy chińskie rakiety, raz konstrukcja amerykańska, raz konstrukcja nowozelandzko-amerykańska i raz rakieta irańska.

China's newest carrier rocket fails in debut mission
By Zhao Lei | chinadaily.com.cn | Updated: 2020-07-10 14:57

The debut mission of Kuaizhou 11, the newest in China's carrier rocket fleet, failed on Friday, according to its maker.

The rocket blasted off at 12:17 pm at the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in northwestern China's Gobi Desert to send two small satellites to two different orbits. During its flight, some abnormalities emerged and resulted in failure, China Aerospace Science and Industry Corp, one of the nation's major space contractors, said in a statement, adding that engineers are investigating the incident.

A Kuaizhou 11 is 25 meters tall, and has a diameter of 2.2 meters. With a liftoff weight of 78 metric tons, the rocket will be able to place a 1-ton payload into a sun-synchronous orbit at an altitude of 700 kilometers, according to CASIC.

Once the rocket becomes operational, it will be the most powerful solid-propellant carrier rocket in the nation. Currently, the strongest solid-propellant carrier rocket in the country is Long March 11, which has a length of 20.8 meters, a diameter of 2 meters and a liftoff weight of 58 tons.

Research and development of Kuaizhou 11 began in 2015 at China Space Sanjiang Group in Hubei province, a CASIC subsidiary specialized in solid-fuel rocket.

Designers planned to make its maiden flight in 2017 but the schedule had been repeatedly postponed due to unexpected technical difficulties, the company explained.

CASIC began to develop the Kuaizhou series in 2009 as a low-cost, quick-response product for the commercial space market. Kuaizhou is the largest solid-propellant rocket family in China, as opposed to the Long March series that mainly relies on liquid fuel.

The State-owned space conglomerate has launched 11 Kuaizhou rockets: two Kuaizhou 1s and nine Kuaizhou 1As.

(...) Two more solid-fueled stages were expected to fire to place the mission’s two satellite payloads into orbit. Chinese officials did not say at what point in the flight the rocket malfunctioned.

“The specific cause of the failure is under further analysis and investigation,” China’s state-run Xinhua news agency said Friday.

The satellites aboard the Kuaizhou 11 rocket included a Jilin 1 Earth-imaging satellite developed by Chang Guang Satellite Technology Co. Ltd., which has launched launched 16 Jilin 1 observation satellites since 2015. The video observation spacecraft lost on Friday’s launch was developed to provide imagery to Bilibili, a Chinese video sharing website.

Bilibili said last month the satellite weighed around 379 pounds (172 kilograms).

A roughly 220-pound (100-kilogram) satellite named Centispace-1-S2 was the other payload on Friday’s mission. The satellite’s mission was not disclosed, but it follows a previous Centispace spacecraft launched in 2018 for Beijing Future Navigation Technology Co. Ltd. to augment satellite navigation services.

The Kuaizhou 11 rocket was developed by Expace, a subsidiary of the state-owned China Aerospace Science and Industry Corp., or CASIC. Expace is based in Wuhan, China, where the coronavirus pandemic emerged beginning late last year.

The first flight of the Kuaizhou 11 rocket was supposed to occur earlier this year, but the launch was delayed after a lockdown of Wuhan. (...)

First launch of Chinese Kuaizhou-11 rocket ends in failure
by Andrew Jones — July 10, 2020

(...) The debut of the Kuaizhou-11 was initially projected for 2018. Footage published by CCTV in 2019 suggested an explosive failure during first stage engine testing.

The mission was China’s 19th launch of 2020, following the successful launch of the APSTAR-6D communications satellite to geosynchronous transfer orbit Thursday.

China has suffered three failures this year. These were the debut launch of the Long March 7A in March, a new launcher which may replace the aging, hypergolic Long March 3B. The latter launcher failed in April resulting in the loss of the Indonesian Palapa-N1 communications satellite. (...)

Kuaizhou-11 and commercial launchers

The Kuaizhou-11 is a larger version of the Kuaizhou-1A solid rocket, operated by Expace, a commercial spin-off from the China Aerospace Science and Industry Corp., a state-owned missile maker. The rocket has a diameter of 2.2 meters, a mass at liftoff of 78 tons. It is capable of delivering 1,000 kilograms to a 700-kilometer Sun-synchronous orbit.

Leena Pivovarova, an analyst at consulting firm Northern Sky Research, told SpaceNews that the “KZ-11 coming online is an addition to China’s launch sector development of competitive domestic launch capabilities and service offerings to its burgeoning “commercial” space industry”.

“China’s launch sector is following a larger worldwide trend of increasing responsiveness and flexibility in launch activities, increasing its already aggressive launch cadence, to developing mobile launch operations and sea launch capabilities”, Pivovarova says.

“Cutting down traditional launch operations and gaining rapid response (or readiness) capabilities can have many advantages to both commercial and government customers. (...)

This was the NRO’s 54th launch since 1996 and its first launch on a Minotaur 4.

WASHINGTON — A Northrop Grumman Minotaur 4 solid propellant rocket launched the NROL-129 mission for the National Reconnaissance Office on July 15 at 9:46 a.m. Eastern from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.

The launch originally scheduled for 9:00 a.m. was delayed by the presence of fishing boats in restricted waters offshore that had to be cleared from the area.

The classified NROL-129 mission carried four remote sensing payloads. (...)

A solid-fueled Northrop Grumman Minotaur 4 rocket vaulted into orbit Wednesday from Virginia’s Eastern Shore and deployed four top secret spacecraft for the U.S. government’s spy satellite agency, extending the program’s success record ahead of three more Minotaur missions planned in 2021. (...)

The Peacekeeper rocket motors used on Wednesday’s launch were filled with pre-packed solid fuel between 1988 and 1990, then placed on alert in missile silos for 15 years until the military decommissioned the Peacekeeper in 2005, according to Col. Robert Bongiovi, director of the launch enterprise division at the Space and Missile Systems Center. (...)

The Minotaur 4 rocket can carry payloads of up to 3,814 pounds (1,730 kilograms) into low Earth orbit, according to Northrop Grumman. The smaller Minotaur 1 launcher is powered by decommissioned Minuteman missile stages, and is capable of injecting a payload of up to 1,278 pounds (580 kilograms) into low Earth orbit.

There are also heavier variants, such as the Minotaur 5 and 6, designed to launch payloads into higher orbits, or deploy larger satellites.

The National Reconnaissance Office’s two patches for the NROL-129 mission feature “two warrior figures working together to defend our nation’s interests and deny our enemies sanctuary,” the NRO said. “The patches include the phrase ‘Our Time has Come,’ which symbolizes that these payloads will enable the NRO’s continued support to both defense and intelligence operations in support of national security.” Credit: NRO

(...) A live video feed from a camera on-board the Progress spacecraft showed the Soyuz third stage shutting down its engine and separating nearly nine minutes into the mission. The Progress MS-15 freighter then unfurled its power-generating solar array wings and navigation antennas.

Two major rocket burns using the Progress spacecraft’s thrusters occurred at at 11:04 a.m., 11:46 a.m., and 12:32 p.m. EDT (1504, 1546, and 1632 GMT) to begin raising its orbit to match the altitude of the International Space Station. Those maneuvers set the stage for the supply ship’s approach to the station and a flyaround maneuver to line up with the Pirs module on the Russian segment of the research laboratory.

Russian cosmonauts monitoring the supply ship’s final approach noticed the Progress spacecraft was drifting out of alignment with the docking target on the Pirs module, adding some tension to the final moments of the docking sequence. (...)

The docking occurred 3 hours, 19 minutes after the mission took off from Kazakhstan, delivering some 2.8 tons (2.6 metric tons) of fuel, food, supplies and other equipment to the space station and its five-person crew.

Russian ground teams loaded 3,351 pounds (1,520 kilograms) of dry cargo into the cargo freighter’s pressurized compartment, according to Roscosmos, the Russian space agency. Roscosmos says there’s around 1,322 pounds (600 kilograms) of propellant aboard the Progress MS-15 spacecraft for transfer into the space station’s tanks, along with 926 pounds (420 kilograms) of water and 101 pounds (46 kilograms) of compressed gas to replenish the space station’s breathing air.

The Progress MS-13 supply ship, which docked with the space station Dec. 9, departed the Pirs docking port July 8 to clear the way for the arrival of the new cargo freighter. After its docking Thursday, the Progress MS-15 spacecraft will remain linked with the space station until December, when it will detach and burn up in Earth’s atmosphere. (...)

Udany start chińskiej rakiety z satelitą obrazującym
BY REDAKCJA ON 3 SIERPNIA 2020

(...) Głównym ładunkiem rakiety Długi Marsz 4B był trzeci satelita z serii jednostek obrazujących Ziyuan 3. Wyniesiony satelita posiada masę 2,5 tony i dołączył do dwóch wcześniejszych jednostek tej serii, które wyniesione zostały na orbitę w 2012 i 2016 roku. Dane zbierane przez te satelity, a de facto zdjęcia satelitarne, trafiają do chińskiego Ministerstwa Zasobów Naturalnych. Zdjęcia te są wykorzystywane w zarządzaniu rolnictwem, zasobami wodnymi, przeglądem środowiskowym czy działaniom związanym z planowaniem przestrzennym.

Dodatkowy satelita z serii Ziyuan pozwoli na uzyskiwanie danych nie co trzy dni jak wcześniej, lecz codziennie. Chiny kontynuują wykorzystywanie tej serii satelitów już od 1999 roku. Co ciekawe, w działaniach rozwojowych nad tą konstelacją pojawiła się Brazylia. Pozostałe dwie jednostki wyniesione w sobotę na orbitę zostały wyprodukowane przez firmę Shanghai ASES Spaceflight Technology Co. Ltd. Satelita Tianqi 10 został wyniesiony dla firmy Guodian Gaoke i będzie pełnił funkcje komunikacyjne. Drugi z pary mniejszych satelitów, nazwany Lobster Eye 1, będzie zaś wykonywał obserwacje astronomiczne w paśmie rentgenowskim (X).

HELSINKI — China launched three satellites on a Long March 4B late Friday for remote sensing, novel lobster eye x-ray astronomy and commercial data acquisition.

The Long March 4B rocket lifted off from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center at 11:13 p.m. Eastern Friday.

The China Aerospace Science and Technology Corp., the country’s main space contractor, confirmed launch success (Chinese) within the hour.

The main payload was the Ziyuan-3 (03) remote sensing satellite, developed by the China Academy of Space Technology (CAST) under CASC. The satellite has a trio of roughly 2.5.meter-resolution cameras for producing geographic information products and resource survey and monitoring.

The new satellite will be networked with the Ziyuan-3 (01), (02) and Gaofen-7 satellites in orbit to provide stable satellite data sources. A fourth and final Ziyuan-3 series satellite may be launched this year.

Dark matter search, Apocalypse constellation
The two small sats, for x-ray astronomy and commercial data acquisition respectively, were developed by the Shanghai ASES Spaceflight Technology Co. Ltd., a research institute under the Shanghai Academy of Spaceflight Technology (SAST), a major CASC subsidiary.

The lobster eye x-ray telescope is a pioneering experiment with the involvement of Hong Kong University and Nanjing University. The stated aim of the NJU-HKU No.1 satellite is to verify ultra-large field of view imaging for searching for dark matter signals in the x-ray energy range.

Science goals include searching for hypothetical “sterile neutrino” particles the constituents of dark matter. Hot gas in galaxy clusters, solar system comets and the interaction of the solar-wind with the earth’s magnetosphere are other areas of study for the lobster eye x-ray payload.

The data acquisition satellite is understood to be part of plans by Beijing Guodian Gaoke Technology Co. Ltd. to build its ‘Apocalypse’ constellation. The satellite is part of technology verification tests for the narrow-band Internet of Things constellation. (...)

CASC stated early January that it intended to launch around 40 times in 2020. Other launch service providers such as Expace with its Kuaizhou solid rockets will be additional missions.

(...) The third spacecraft in China’s Ziyuan 3 series of mapping satellites was the primary payload on the Long March 4B rocket.

The Ziyuan 3-03 spacecraft, weighing more than two-and-a-half tons, joins two other Ziyuan 3 satellites launched in 2012 and 2016 providing land survey imagery and data to the Chinese Ministry of Natural Resources. The civilian-operated satellites “provide data for the country’s land resources investigation, natural disaster prevention, agriculture development, water resource management, environmental survey and urban planning,” Xinhua said.

The addition of a third Ziyuan 3 satellite will shorten the time the Ziyuan 3 constellation can take images of the same location on Earth from once every three days to once per day, according to Xinhua.

China began launching Ziyuan satellites in 1999, and some spacecraft in the Ziyuan program have been developed in partnership with Brazil.

The two secondary payloads on Saturday’s launch were developed by Shanghai ASES Spaceflight Technology Co. Ltd., Xinhua said.

One of the satellites, named Tianqi 10, was launched for the Beijing-based company Guodian Gaoke for a communication and data relay mission. The other small secondary payload, named Lobster Eye 1, carries a wide-field X-ray astronomy instrument.

WASHINGTON — The first Proton launch of the year took place July 30 carrying two satellites for the Russian Satellite Communications Company.

Proton lifted off at 5:25 p.m. Eastern from Russia’s Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on an 18-hour mission to deploy the geostationary satellites, Express-80 and Express-103, according to Roscosmos.

The launch was originally scheduled for March, but was delayed to replace problematic components on the rocket. A one-day delay preceded the launch to allow for additional checks on the vehicle, according to Proton manufacturer Khrunichev.

Russia planned three Proton launches for 2020 at the beginning of the year. It’s not clear if or how the three-month delay will impact the schedule of future missions. (...)

Proton rocket lifts off with two Russian Express comsats
July 30, 2020 Stephen Clark

(...) Express 80 and Express 103, which weigh a combined 9,680 pounds (4,391 kilograms), were stacked one on top of the other for launch.

After separation from the Proton’s Breeze M upper stage the Express satellites will use electric thrusters to reach their final positions in circular geostationary orbits at an altitude of more than 22,000 miles (nearly 36,000 kilometers).

Express 80 is heading to a slot along the equator 80 degrees east longitude, while Express 103 will enter service at 96.5 degrees east. Both satellites were built by ISS Reshetnev, a Russian spacecraft manufacturer, and are designed for 15-year missions.

The satellites each have 16 C-band transponders, 20 Ku-band transponders, and an L-band payload, according to Roscosmos. The communications payloads were supplied by Thales Alenia Space of Italy.

The new spacecraft will provide fixed and mobile communications, digital TV and radio broadcasting services, high-speed Internet connectivity, and other data transmission services, Roscosmos said.

The Express satellites are owned by the Russian Satellite Communications Company, or RSCC, a state-owned operator of Russian telecom satellites. The national operator provides civilian satellite communications services across Russia and neighboring countries.

Like other satellites in RSCC’s Express fleet, Express 80 and Express 103 will also relay communications for the Russian president and other senior government officials, according to ISS Reshetnev. (...)

JIUQUAN, Aug. 6 (Xinhua) -- China successfully launched a new optical remote-sensing satellite from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in northwest China at 12:01 p.m. Thursday (Beijing Time).

The satellite, Gaofen-9 04, was sent into orbit by a Long March-2D carrier rocket. It has a resolution up to the sub-meter level.

(http://www.xinhuanet.com/english/2020-08/06/139269468_15966967194781n.jpg)

The satellite will be mainly used for land surveys, city planning, land right confirmation, road network design, crop yield estimation and disaster prevention and mitigation.

It will also provide information for the development of the Belt and Road Initiative. Enditem
