JAXA, Earth observation satellite "Daichi" to one year ahead of the launch of a successor

http://www.asahi.com/digital/nikkanko/NKK201104150019.html

According to machine translation;

Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) on August 14, Earth observation satellites to monitor Earth from space accidents, "Daichi" decided to accelerate the launch of a successor. Earthquake under the East and is aimed at detailed satellite images to help the disaster. Require accelerated development plan for the successor to the nearby Ministry of Education. Successor now has plans to launch in fiscal year 2013 and 15 if it does, each one about a year expected to be launched sooner.

Showed the president said in a briefing held Tatsukawa Keizi. Daichi to operate from two in 2006 put the radar and optical sensors, radar resolution of 10 meters. Under this earthquake, including the ministry, the Ministry of Land, which provides an analysis of images taken by the Ministry of Agriculture and about 70 species. However, getting a group because the observed data is limited to about 3-4 times a day, usually taken in the country five times the data observed from the start, a time-consuming process. Unit 2 is the successor to the radar (3 m resolution), and Unit 3 is an optical sensor (resolution 0.8 m, 2.5 m current) put on the accuracy, about half the current 30-minute processing time short.

Radio astronomy satellite Astro-G was cancelled due to lower than expected accuracy of a large 30-foot diameter antenna to be deployed in space.
Astro-G is originally sceduled launch in 2012.

Oh, that's a shame  :(
This makes RadioAstron even more important for science

At least on June 29, it was set for August 28
http://www.jaxa.jp/press/2011/06/20110629_sac_h2af19_j.html (in Japanese)
AFAIU:
Quote
2. Launch Date
 Launch Date · August 28, 2011 (Sunday)
 Launch time · 13:00 to 15:00
 Launch backup period · August 29, 2011 (Monday) - September 26 (Monday)
Apparently, no other press release from Jaxa on this matter since then.

According to the old news here; http://www.spacenews.com/earth_observation/110627-japan-delays-ansaro-year.html Asnaro supposed to be launch onboard Dnepr, not Rockot.

Another news to trigger more H-2A launch, after 2015, is here; http://search.japantimes.co.jp/rss/nn20111001a9.html

MEXT is seeking one billion yen for FY 2012 for the next generation communication test satellite. This was mentioned before. It should carry a very large antenna. If it gets through I guess launch will be 2016 with H-IIA 204 or H-IIB.  For Alos-3 MEXT is seeking 2,8 billion yen up from 100 million.
