SARah-1 ready for launch

SARah-1 satellite is scheduled for launch at Vandenberg AFB on June 18, 2022 at 13:50 UTC omnboard Falcon 9.

The earth observation satellite SARah-1 will be launched from Vandenberg AFB, California, USA on June 18th, 2022, 13:50 UTC.

The S-Band Communication Unit (TMTC) used for SARah-1 was supplied by STT-SystemTechnik GmbH.

SARah is a new operational reconnaissance system consisting of several satellites and a ground segment, which was developed on behalf of the German Bundeswehr. The architecture of the overall SARah system consists of a space segment with three radar satellites (2 x OHB, 1 x Airbus) and a ground segment connected to two ground stations.

SARah-1 has been developed by Airbus Defence and Space in Friedrichshafen, which is also responsible for the launch, calibration and validation of the satellite, with final in-orbit delivery.

SARah-1 has already been transported from Germany to the launch site at the Vandenberg Space Force Base in California, US, and is now ready for the launch. It will be subjected to system-specific tests in the preparation hall and then integrated into the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket.

STT-System-Technik GmbH is proud to be part of this project and are eagerly awaiting a successful start and a successful mission.
