On Wednesday 19 December 2018, a Soyuz (Mission VS20) launcher operated by Arianespace took off from Kourou with the new French CSO-1 military reconnaissance satellite on board. The satellite was put into orbit at 18:38 CET.
The HP3 instrument is on Mars – Sonaca Space GmbH was the primary industrial subcontractor for DLR, covering System Engineering, Thermal and Structural analysis, Quality assurance, Configuration Management and AIT/AIV of the instrument. The team at Sonaca Space GmbH has worked on the project from requirements definition to environmental testing and supported the ATLO (Assembly, Test, and Launch Operations) activities after delivery to lander integration in the US.
