Japan will provide paid services on the orbit of research satellites
The Japanese aerospace agency JAXA will begin providing paid services to launch small research satellites into orbit, NHK reported today.
Till now JAXA carried out the conclusion of all scientific and research satellites on a free basis.
According to JAXA representatives, the cost of outputting a satellite measuring about 10 square centimeters will be about 3 million yen (approximately 29 thousand dollars).
So, for the delivery of satellites to the International Space Station (ISS), JAXA plans to use cargo spacecraft, including Konotori. The launch of satellites into orbit will begin, tentatively, from October this year.
At the same time, as the NHK notes, JAXA intends to continue free services for the release of satellites intended for certain studies, including the development of human resources.
