MOSCOW, August 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Soyuz rocket and Fregat booster worked properly when deploying European Galileo satellites last week when they found to be slightly deviating from the target orbit, the Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) said on Monday.
Russia’s Lavochkin aerospace company confirmed on Saturday there were errors in the deployment of European Galileo satellites by its Fregat-MT booster.
“There were orbiting errors,” the company said, following reports that the satellites had deviated from the target orbit.
Russia’s Soyuz rocket with a Fregat-MT upper stage and two Galileo navigation system satellites blasted off from Kourou, French Guiana, on Friday, August 22.
Roscomos has set up an independent emergency commission to investigate the matter.
