Airbus ships ROK ANASIS-II satellite to US
Airbus confirmed on 10 June that it has shipped its ANASIS-II telecommunications satellite (pictured) to Cape Canaveral, Florida ahead of its planned launch. It was transported in an Antonov An-124 cargo aircraft.
The satellite was manufactured at Airbus facilities in Toulouse, France for the South Korean military. It will be the country’s first dedicated military satellite. Many details surrounding the ANASIS-II have been kept away from the public at the request of Seoul.
ANASIS-II will become the 52nd Eurostar E3000 satellite launched by Airbus and will provide secured communications from its position in geostationary orbit. The launch is due to take place in early July 2020 aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket taking off from pad 39A at the Kennedy Space Centre.
