All right we have a launch tomorrow! A Japanese photographer waiting for the rollout just tweeted that the TNSC VAB has just opened its doors.... (http://twitpic.com/byf9hp)

From various newspaper reports and even budget reports (via the omnipotent Wiki, Japanese version), here are some out open reports about the spysats:

- the radar satellite is of the same type launched in Dec. 2011 (IGS-R3), probably with a resolution of less than a meter. The cost of development and production of IGS-R3 was 39.8b yen (+ 10.3b yen launch costs), and apparently the cost IGS-R4 has been reduced by 15.4b yen.

- the optical satellite is a new generation demo satellite with a 2 year designed life. Back in 2009 Yomiuri Shimbun reported that this generation of satellites may reach a maximum of 40 cm resolution, putting it ahead of satellites like Geoeye-1 and perhaps only second to the current Keyholes....

For those who want to see the rollout, see http://www.ustream.tv/channel/5156072.

From the photos is it now clear this vehicle is flying in the "202" configuration? Also is it possible this vehicle includes any of the enhancements planned for the H-IIA upgrade program (long coast, clampband payload attach, onboard nav for range safety)?

Have a feeling this mission will be full of surprises.

Beautiful scenery, but .... Isn't there a launch pad towards which the web cam could be pointed? Is this a national security secrecy thing?

Good stuff GP! Should be able to get an article written for this, even if it'll be a short one.

It seems that the rock is reflected in this web camera in the launch of IGS in many cases.
Seemingly, They want to make secret.

H-IIB (which launches HTV) is actually taller, but H-IIA is "finer" (skinnier).

For those interested, the live coverage has just begun.

Weather is crappy - overcast with cloud banks at less than 3000 feet and drizzles, but should be good enough for launch. Fueling should have finished by now.
