ECM Space Technologies GmbH has just started a launch campaign for 17 international smallsats to be launched this summer from Baikonur onboard the Russian Soyuz-2/Fregat launch system. Currently, launch campaign participants are busy with autonomous preparations before the final integration followed by electrical checks with Fregat upper stage.

On this mission ECM Space Technologies GmbH coordinates the launch of 17 international smallsats, in particular, the German microsats TechnoSat (Technical University of Berlin) and Flying Laptop (Institute of Space Systems of Stuttgart University) as well as CubeSat constellations coming from the US commercial companies. All CubeSats will be launched in deployers developed and manufactured by ECM Space Technologies GmbH.

The smallsats will be launched under the Contracts with GLAVKOSMOS Joint-stock company, Russian authorized Soyuz-2 launch operator. The primary Kanopus-V-IK mission is an Earth Observation satellite of the Russian State Space Corporation ROSCOSMOS.

As part of a strong partnership with GLAVKOSMOS, ECM Space Technologies GmbH also supports the launch of CubeSats developed by the Russian universities: Moscow Polytechnic University (Mayak 3U CubeSat), Moscow Aviation Institute (Iskra-MAI-85 3U CubeSat) and Kursk South West State University (Equador UTE - SWSU 1U CubeSat).

In total, 73 satellites will be launched on Kanopus-V-IK mission. Reliable Soyuz-2 launcher with a unique Fregat upper stage will ensure injection of the primary payload and smallsats into 3 different orbits. Such flexibility can not be found in any other launch system in the world.

The launch date is scheduled for the 14th of July, 2017.

More news from the launch site are coming.
