The South Korean government stated that the location and the date of the first military communications satellite launch has actually not been set yet. US media reports otherwise, stating that the satellite dubbed Anasis-two could lift off next month on a Falcon 9 rocket launched by SpaceX, the commercial space firm. This satellite is expected to improve coverage and the security of the civilian-owned satellites which the South Korean military currently relies on for communications. South Korea’s Defense Acquisition Program Administration stated that the details of the launch will depend on many factors, including the weather.
