Epsilon to Launch ASNARO-2
Japan's Enhanced Epsilon Rocket is set for its second mission on January 17, 2018 - lifting off from the Uchinoura Space Center with the ASNARO-2 high-resolution radar-imaging satellite that joins a program of high-performance small satellites. Sporting a number of changes compared to the original Epsilon flown in 2013, Epsilon will employ its four-stage configuration to lift the 570-Kilogram satellite into a Sun Synchronous Orbit to join the first ASNARO satellite.
