Flight VV10: Vega to launch two Earth observation satellites for Italy, Israel and France


For its eighth launch of the year, and the 10th Vega mission since this launcher began its career at the Guiana Space Center in 2012, Arianespace will orbit two Earth observation satellites for civil and military applications: OPTSAT-3000 for the Italian Ministry of Defence; and Venµs, a mission of the Israel Space Agency (ISA) – a government body sponsored by the country’s Ministry of Science & Technology – and the French CNES space agency (Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales). This marks the seventh Earth observation mission for the versatile Vega launch vehicle. The launch will be performed from the Vega Launch Complex (ZLV) in Kourou, French Guiana. The Launch Readiness Review (LRR) will take place on Monday, July 31, 2017 in Kourou, to authorize the start of operations for the final countdown.
