The launch took place from the Vostochny cosmodrome at 0.14 Moscow time. Nine minutes later, the upper stage separated from the third stage of the rocket, after which it fired the main engine twice and delivered the Kondor-FKA to the calculated point. “The means of launching worked in the normal mode,” the ministry said.

The mass of the satellite is 1050 kilograms, the height of its circumpolar orbit is 500-550 kilometers. It is capable of operating in three modes: detailed chart, detailed route, and overview, and can also take up to 100 photographs of the Earth’s surface per day.

“Kondor-FKA” will carry out round-the-clock monitoring of the Earth, including the Arctic region. The launch of the second satellite into orbit is scheduled for 2024, and two more – for 2029-2030.
