...from cutting-edge technologies, new avionics, silicon carbide, a large aperture and an agile platform," said François Auque, Head of Space Systems. "Furthermore, through our training programme, we have transferred our knowledge to the engineers from Kazakhstan who will operate the satellite, enabling Kazakhstan to control the satellite completely autonomously, and collect and use the images provided by the satellite."
It's the first of six satellites Copernicus plans to launch and the program "will be the most efficient and fullest Earth-observation programme in the world"   according to Jose Manuel Barroso , the president of the European Commission
Professor Tim Wright from the School of Earth and Environment at the University of Leeds and Director of COMET, said: "Today's changes mark a new chapter in the history of CPOM and COMET. It presents a golden opportunity for the scientific community to better exploit the growing volume of data collected by satellite sensors, placing the University of Leeds at the heart of the government's strategy to drive economic growth through investment in space technologies."
"The problems were detected in pre-launch electrical tests of the satellite," a Baikonur source told Interfax-AVN. "Hence, the launch may be delayed until a later date."
