The Vega rocket carried the satellite to the orbit, and the Brno company also helped

On Thursday night, the European Vega rocket launched the first satellite for the Earth with a very high resolution on the orbit. This is the mouth of a new constellation of Pliades Neo satellites. The dark tonne Pliades Neo 3 satellite, together with five other small satellites, was placed on the so-called dispenser of the Brno company SAB Aerospace.

The rocket took off from the ramp in Kourou in French Guyan at 3:50 SEL. During the mission, lasting an hour and 42 minutes, Vega launched the main Pliades Neo 3 satellite, weighing 920 kilograms and measuring 628 kilometers. In addition, five small satellites, including the Norsat-3 microdruice observer and the mini-satellites (CubeSat), have placed various orbiting positions in orbit.

The main city on the carrier, or dispenser of the Czech company SAB Aerospace, was occupied by the Pliades Neo 3 satellite and five other secondary satellites were located below the nm. This time, we assembled the dispenser in a configuration that is adapted for small satellites and one large satellite, SAB Aerospace CEO Petr Kapoun said in the press first.

Thanks to our carrier, we managed to fully utilize the capacity of the rocket, which would otherwise bring into space only one major satellite. In this way, the costs of the journey into space were divided among several subjects, Kapoun added.

The Airbus-funded Pliades Neo satellite constellation will mark a shift in geolocation, according to Arianespace, which flew. Satellites can observe the Earth, especially during major disasters.

After a hurry from last autumn, when Vega grew younger shortly after taking off with two satellites, the launch was flawless this time, according to the AFP agency, the French National Center for Space Research (CNES) informed.

Arianespace said the preparations for the launch were part of a set of measures formulated by an independent commission of inquiry set up after the failure of Vega’s mission on November 17 last year.

At that time, the rocket became even more so with the Spanish satellite SEOSAT-Ingenio, around which there should have been a sharp image of the Earth’s surface in high resolution, and the French satellite Taranis, intended for Earth observation. The failure of the problem arose during the production of the fourth stage of the rocket, which was not revealed during inspections.

For Arianespace this year, this is a start. Pedtm organized two Soyuz rocket takeoffs from the Russian Vostonyj spaceport. The Vega rocket has carried out its 18th mission since its arrests in 2012.
