The Emirates Institution for Advanced Science & Technology (EIAST) has signed a deal with Moscow-based International Space Company Kosmotras (ISCK) for the launch of the UAE's second remote sensing satellite, DubaiSat-2.
As per the contract, DubaiSat-2 will be launched on board a Dnepr Rocket through ISCK Kosmotras from Yasny Cosmodrome in North Russia by fourth quarter of 2012, as part of a clustered launch, in which DubaiSat-2 will be primary satellite on board.
An agreement on the launch was signed recently by EIAST Director-General Ahmed Obaid Al Mansoori and Vladimir Andreev, Director-General of International Space Company Kosmotras (ISCK), which owns and operates the launch vehicle.
Minimum modifications were made to the original missile, and ISCK was chosen to commercially operate the system, which was renamed Dnepr.
