“The suborbital trajectory inclination will be just two degrees, so the IXV, which will be launched by the Vega carrier rocket from the Kourou spaceport in French Guiana towards the Pacific, cannot fly above Russia,” he said.
The ESA planned to launch the IXV to flight test the technologies and critical systems for Europe’s future automated re-entry vehicles returning from low orbit, according to previous reports.
The spacecraft’s re-entry will begin during its flight east of the Kuril Islands, ESA said. The IXV splashdown is expected in the central part of the Pacific where it will be awaited by a special vessel. At the final stage of the flight, the IXV will be followed by a tracking station in the Kiribati island state and by a satellite.
