First Russian Private Satellite to Be Launched in 2013

First Russia's satellite designed and constructed by a private company will be launched next year, Dauria Aerospace head Mikhail Kokorich told RBK Daily.

      The DX1-class 50-kg satellite will be designed to “fine-tune a satellite platform, monitor the movement of ships in the world’s oceans and test a variety of payloads,” Kokorich said.

      The Dauria Aerospace company also expects to start creating the second satellite by the end of this year. Thereafter several DRE-class satellites are planned to be built to be used to provide space imagery.

      The company will not only build satellites but also operate them and market its services, Kokorich added.
