The problem happened during startup. 1st milestone has passed in a regular mode - the separation of the calibration sphere happened successfully. However "Canopus-ST" failed to separate from block to disperse wheels and not earned.
As we were informed Days.EN, this 1 unsuccessful startup under military government in 2015. It is noted that earlier the Ministry of defence reported about the successful conclusion of the satellite. Meanwhile, the Russian space Agency has already lost 2 space devices over the past year.

"According to reliable information from open sources, the main tool of this unit is the radiometer, in this embodiment, the radar with such long waves, which allows you to see through the water layers. The target device did STC "Cosmonet", which is part of JSC "Russian space systems", - said Anatoly Zak, editor of the website russianspaceweb.com.
