Into orbit with Turkish Cargo

[ December 14, 2021   //   ]

Turkish Cargo recently transported Ukraine’s Sich-2-30 Earth Observation Satellite to Miami for its launch via its hub at Istanbul.

The satellite, which has been developed as part of the National Targeted Scientific and Technical Space Program of Ukraine, will blast off from the Kennedy Space Center in January.  Once it has settled into a stable orbit, it will capture the digital and infrared images of the Earth’s surface and collect data from the ionosphere.

The satellite was dismantled into multiple components, and the components placed carefully on two separate pallets. Turkish Cargo has a range of special equipment for delicate shipments along with warehouses for sensitive cargo.
