Цитата: undefinedSouth Korean satellite shipped to Cape Canaveral for Falcon 9 launch next monthJune 9, 2020 | Stephen ClarkArtist's concept of a Eurostar E3000 satellite in orbit. The Anasis 2 spacecraft built for the South Korean government is based on the Airbus Eurostar E3000 satellite platform, but other design details have not been disclosed. Credit: AirbusA communications satellite built for the South Korean military arrived at Cape Canaveral this week from an Airbus factory in France to begin final preparations for launch on SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket in July.The Anasis 2 communications satellite flew to the Kennedy Space Center Monday aboard an Antonov An-124 cargo plane from Toulouse, France, the site of an Airbus spacecraft manufacturing facility.The flight from Toulouse to the Kennedy Space Center appeared on public flight tracking websites. Industry sources confirmed the Antonov transport plane carried the Anasis 2 spacecraft to the Florida launch base, where teams will test and fuel the satellite inside a SpaceX processing facility at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.The Anasis 2 satellite is scheduled for launch in early July on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from pad 39A at the Kennedy Space Center.Developed by Airbus Defense and Space, the Anasis 2 satellite is shrouded in secrecy at the wishes of the the spacecraft's owner -- the South Korean government.Anasis 2 is based on the Eurostar E3000 spacecraft platform made by Airbus, but details about its performance have been kept under wraps. The Anasis 2 satellite is expected to launch into an elliptical transfer orbit, then use its on-board propulsion system to reach a circular orbit at geostationary altitude more than 22,000 miles (nearly 36,000 kilometers) over the equator.,South Korea purchased the satellite -- formerly known as KMilSatCom 1 -- through an arrangement to offset South Korea's purchase of F-35A fighter jets from Lockheed Martin. Lockheed Martin ultimately subcontracted the satellite manufacturing deal to Airbus.A Falcon 9 rocket takes off from pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Credit: SpaceXBefore Anasis 2, South Korea's military has relied on international and civilian-owned satellites for communications.The liftoff of the Anasis 2 satellite in early July is currently fourth in line in SpaceX's launch manifest.A Falcon 9 rocket launch carrying the next batch of SpaceX's Starlink broadband satellites are scheduled for Friday from pad 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, followed by another Falcon 9/Starlink launch in late June from pad 39A at Kennedy.The U.S. Space Force's next GPS navigation satellite is scheduled for launch June 30 from pad 40 on another Falcon 9 rocket, followed by the Anasis 2 mission in early July.
Цитата: undefinedAirbus Defence and Space ships ANASIS-II telecommunications satellite to launch site11 June 2020Toulouse, 10 June 2020 - ANASIS-II has left the Airbus cleanrooms in Toulouse, France and has been shipped to Cape Canaveral in Florida for its forthcoming launch. Built for South Korea, ANASIS-II will provide secured communications over wide coverage. Based on the highly reliable Eurostar platform, ANASIS-II will be the 52th Eurostar E3000 satellite launched and will
Цитата: undefinedSpaceX is preparing to deploy a South Korean military satelliteby Evelyn Arevalo ● July 03, 2020Featured Image Source: AirbusSpaceX is preparing to deploy the ANASIS-II (Army/Navy/Air Force Satellite Information System) satellite for the Republic of South Korea. The military satellite will launch atop a Falcon 9 rocket from Launch Complex 40 at the United States Air Force Station in Cape Canaveral, Florida. The mission is scheduled for no earlier than July 14th (time pending).The satellite is manufactured by Airbus Defense and Space, it will be operated by South Korea's Agency for Defense Development. South Korea made an agreement in 2014 with Lockheed Martin to acquire ANASIS-II as a side deal when it purchased an F-35A Joint Strike Fighter. Then, the company subcontracted the satellite manufacturing work to Airbus in 2016.ANASIS-II arrived to the United States from an Airbus factory located in Toulouse, France. An Antonov An-124 cargo airplane transported it to a SpaceX facility at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, where teams are conducting final preparations. In the week ahead, the satellite will be integrated atop a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket's fairing. Falcon 9 will deploy the ANASIS-II satellite into an elliptical transfer orbit. ANASIS- II will use its integrated propulsion system to reach an altitude of 36,000 kilometers over the equator, where it will operate in geostationary orbit to provide coverage to the Korean Peninsula over a 6,000-kilometer radius. Not much has been revealed about the satellite's exact function because it's a South Korean government mission, all that is known is that the satellite is based on the Eurostar-3000 satellite platform. The design can be modified to meet specific requirements by the customer.This mission is expected to be carried out by a previously-flown Falcon 9 rocket first-stage booster, production number B1058. This particular rocket booster is special because it made history when it lifted NASA astronauts to orbit aboard the Crew Dragon spacecraft for the first time on May 30 (Demo-2 mission). The aerospace company is currently the only in the world that has achieved landing orbital-class rockets over 50 times. Falcon 9's first-stage is capable of launching a payload to space and returns to land vertically on an autonomous drone ship at sea. SpaceX recovers and reuses rockets in order to reduce the cost of spaceflight.

Цитата: undefinedSpaceX test-fires Falcon 9 rocket launch next week with Korean military satelliteJuly 11, 2020 | Stephen ClarkA Falcon 9 rocket -- without its payload fairing -- fired up on Cape Canaveral's Complex 40 launch Saturday for a pre-flight test-firing. Credit: William Harwood/CBS NewsHours after calling off a launch of a different rocket from a nearby launch pad, SpaceX's launch team loaded a Falcon 9 rocket with propellant Saturday and fired its nine main engines on pad 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, setting the stage for a liftoff with a South Korean military satellite as soon as Tuesday amid a busy stretch of missions for the California-based rocket company.SpaceX ground crews raised the Falcon 9 rocket vertical on pad 40 Saturday morning. An automated computer-controlled sequencer commanded super-chilled, densified kerosene and liquid oxygen into the Falcon 9 Saturday afternoon.The countdown culminated in ignition of the rocket's nine Merlin 1D main engines at 6 p.m. EDT (2200 GMT). The engines throttled up to full power, generating 1.7 million pounds of thrust for several seconds while clamps restrained the Falcon 9 on the launch pad.Onlookers observed a plume of exhaust coming from the rocket and confirmed the the test-firing occurred. SpaceX was expected to officially release an update on the outcome of the static fire test after a quick-look data review.The Falcon 9 will be lowered and rolled back inside SpaceX's hangar near pad 40, where technicians will attach a European-made communications satellite named Anasis 2 built for the South Korean military.Assuming the final days of launch preparations go according to plan, SpaceX plans to launch the mission Tuesday during a nearly four-hour window opening at 5 p.m. EDT (2100 GMT) and extending until 8:55 p.m. EDT (0055 GMT). Скрытый текст: The static fire test Saturday for the Anasis 2 mission occurred the same day SpaceX planned to launch a Falcon 9 rocket from pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center, located a few miles north of pad 40. SpaceX announced Saturday morning that it called off the launch from pad 39A "to allow more time for checkouts."SpaceX tweeted that teams "working to identify the next launch opportunity" for the mission from pad 39A, which will loft SpaceX's next 57 Starlink broadband Internet satellites and a pair of commercial BlackSky Earth-imaging microsatellites.The Starlink/BlackSky launch was supposed to take off June 26, but SpaceX delayed the mission to conduct additional pre-launch checkouts. A launch attempt Wednesday was scrubbed minutes before liftoff by poor weather.The company has not disclosed any details about the nature of the problems -- other than weather -- that have delayed the Starlink/BlackSky mission. As of Saturday evening, it was not clear whether SpaceX might proceed with Tuesday's planned Anasis 2 launch next, or if there might be another opportunity to launch the Starlink/BlackSky mission as soon as Monday.SpaceX has launched 11 Falcon 9 missions so far this year, most recently on June 30, when a Falcon 9 rocket took off from pad 40 with a U.S. military GPS navigation satellite.The Anasis 2 satellite is prepared for shipment to Cape Canaveral from Airbus's facility in Toulouse, France.
