Media Advisory/REMINDER: NEOSSat to Launch on Indian Rocket

LONGUEUIL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwire) -- 02/25/13 -- On February 25, Canadian satellite NEOSSat (Near-Earth Object Surveillance Satellite) will be launched aboard India's Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) from Satish Dhawan Space Center, in Sriharikota (India).

NEOSSat builds upon our country's cutting edge expertise in compact, microsatellite design and will be the world's first space telescope entirely dedicated to detecting and tracking not only asteroids, but also satellites and space debris.

This ground-breaking mission was developed in Canada as a result of a close collaboration between several key partners including the Canadian Space Agency (CSA), Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC), the University of Calgary and Microsat Systems Canada Inc., amongst others.

The media should be able to view the launch live on the DDI News Website.
