Satellite Launch Service
We propose the launch solution tailored to customer's needs and support the technical coordination and various reviews up to launch to offer our customers total support for their satellite launch campaign.
Available Satellite Launch Method
Customer's satellite is launched via a piggy-back launch as a secondary payload. Cost is cheaper compared to a dedicated launch.
ISS Refueling Mission
Customer's satellite is transported to the International Space Station during the regular ISS refueling missions, and deployed from the Japanese Experimental Module "Kibo".
The satellite is launched using, for example, H2B launcher and carried to the ISS by JAXA's refueling vehicle, HTV.
Customer's satellite is launched as a dedicated launch on a small launcher.
The timing of the launch can be adjusted more felxibily, and satellite can be deployed into the desired orbit.
