Dnepr to Put South Korean Satellite into Orbit in Late March
The Russian-Ukrainian Dnepr rocket created on the basis of the RS-20 intercontinental ballistic missile may be lunched with the South Korean Kompsat-3A satellite on March 26. This was reported by a source in the Russian space industry.
“We have agreed upon a new launch date with the South Korean customer. It may take place on March 26. The final decision will be announced in the next few days,” the official said.
It was earlier reported that the launch of the Kompsat-3A satellite was scheduled for March 12. It was planned to carry out a total of three space launches using the Dnepr rocket in 2015.
It should be noted that the previous launch of the Dnepr rocket with the Japanese ASNARO remote sensing satellite and four mini-satellites was performed in November. On June 19, the Dnepr delivered 33 spacecraft for various purposes.
