Canadian Satellite CASSIOPE Ready to Launch

The Canadian satellite CASSIOPE (Cascade SmallSat and Ionospheric Polar Explorer) is ready for its second attempt to launch. The event is planned on September 29th with a launch window opening at noon (12 p.m. EDT). CASSIOPE will lift off from Vandenberg, California aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket.. With CASSIOPE, Canada is looking to make a significant contribution to unravelling the mysteries of space weather.

CASSIOPE is a multi-purpose mission designed to conduct space environment research and telecommunications technology demonstration. Its scientific payload ePOP (enhanced polar outflow probe) will observe the ionosphere and enable scientists to collect new data on space storms in Earth's upper atmosphere and assess their potential impacts. CASSIOPE also includes the Cascade technology demonstrator for high speed store and forward information delivery.
