Russian imaging satellite in orbit after Soyuz launch


spaceflightnow.com said:

Russia launched a civil remote sensing satellite aboard a Soyuz rocket Tuesday, lofting a spacecraft with a modernized high-resolution digital camera to collect imagery of Earth for Russian government agencies and international customers.

The images will be used by emergency personnel, environmental scientists, urban planners and other officials, putting Russia in a league with commercial observation satellites owned by companies in the United States and Europe.

The O3b company has finally got its first four satellites in orbit.

They were launched on a Soyuz rocket from French Guiana after a day's delay due to unfavourable winds at the Sinnamary spaceport.

The satellites' deployment marks the first phase in O3b's construction of a novel telecommunications network.
