(USA) SES lancia i satelliti O3b mPower, puntando ai settori governativo e della difesa (fonte: Theresa Hitchens, Breaking Defense)

Luxembourg-based SES’s first two O3b mPower communications satellites, aimed largely at the government and defense markets, were successfully launched on Friday.

The two birds were lofted on a reusable Falcon 9 launch vehicle after a nail-biting delay attributed to a technical issue on the ground at SpaceX’s Pad 40 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station here. A SpaceX official at the site told Breaking Defense that the rocket was on about its eighth mission. Up to now, Falcon 9’s record for reuse is 14 times with another rocket, the official added, although the firm is hoping to hit 15 with an upcoming launch.
