6. Max Valier - http://www.satmaxvalier.it/index


Pls refer
 
Thx
~Prasad

Are we sure Max Valier is schedule for this flight? On the project webpage the countdown clock says launch is still 159 days away (or is it counting down to something else?).

I remember reading somewhere on NSF that its ride was transferred to a Russian launch (IIRC, out of Plesetsk).....

Yes, that's the information I have also.

@SurreyNanosats:

Good news! STRaND-1 cleared customs in India yesterday. Tech is cool, but don't ever forget the importance of paperwork folks!

Good for Canada. Actually doing something, maybe it will spur others! What's the design lifetime of this satellite?

NEOSSat to Launch on Indian Rocket


Longueuil, Quebec, February 21, 2013 – On February 25, Canadian satellite NEOSSat (Near-Earth Object Surveillance Satellite) will be launched aboard India’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) from Satish Dhawan Space Center, in Sriharikota (India).

NEOSSat builds upon our country’s cutting edge expertise in compact, microsatellite design and will be the world’s first space telescope entirely dedicated to detecting and tracking not only asteroids, but also satellites and space debris.

This ground-breaking mission was developed in Canada as a result of a close collaboration
between several key partners including the Canadian Space Agency (CSA), Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC), the University of Calgary and Microsat Systems Canada Inc., amongst others.


The media should be able to view the launch live on the DDI News Website.


When:          February 25, 2013

What time:  7:25 a.m. (Eastern Standard Time)


What:          Launch of NEOSSat from India

         
Where:         Live feed at http://webcast.gov.in/live/


About NEOSSat

Does any one (from technical ppl) have any idea on the C20 technical changes from it's previous flights?

In the brochure, few changes are mentioned:
1. PS2 (L40) is mentioned as PL40. Usually it is PS2 (L40 with Vikas 41.5T liquid). What does 'P' signify here?
2. PS3 is mentioned as HPS3. Usually it is PS3 (S7 Solid). What does 'H' signify here?
3. Even the PS4 specification is changed: the length is reduced from 2.6 m to 2.0 m. Not sure whether it is a typo or not!

If any one has the info, request to clarify.

Thx in advance! :)

AFAIU this launch should release 9 objects into orbit:
  • 7 S/C
  • DLA-U
  • PS4
