NEW CRISIS SATELLITES LAUNCHED
« on: July 31, 2009, 07:53:06 PM »

The satellites were launched atop a converted Soviet-era missile

A rocket has been launched from Kazakhstan carrying two British-built satellites which will help monitor natural disasters.

The UK-DMC2 and Deimos-1 spacecraft will join four platforms already in the sky that together form the Disaster Monitoring Constellation.

The network obtains rapid pictures of areas struck by natural calamities - such as floods, earthquakes and fire.

The imagery is used by governments and aid agencies to co-ordinate relief.

The two satellites headed for orbit aboard a Dnepr rocket which was launched from Baikonur cosmodrome, Russia's Strategic Space Troops said.

The Dnepr, a converted Soviet-era SS-18 intercontinental ballistic missile, was also carrying four other foreign satellites, including the United Arab Emirates' first space platform, known as DubaiSat-1.
