TOKYO, March 17. /TASS/. Japan’s Radar-5 spy satellite was successfully taken to orbit by the H-2A rocket Friday, rocket manufacturer Mitsubishi Heavy Industries said.
The satellite is equipped with cloud-penetrating radar capable of seeing targets day or night and will replace the Radar-3 satellite launched in 2011 over rocket tests in North Korea. However, the exact capabilities of the satellite are unknown.
The launch was initially scheduled for Thursday from the Tanegashima Space Center but was postponed due to weather conditions.
