Stanislaw Ostoja, NovaNano Chairman, announced today that NovaNano will provide its first launch brokering service to its South Korean customer: the Open Source Satellite Initiative (OSSI). The contract, signed with OSSI director, Mr. Hojun Song, foresees the launch of 1 CubeSat class nanosatellite into low earth orbit on the Soyuz rocket launched from Baikonour cosmodrome. NovaNano provides the access to space for the South Korean customer through a brokering agreement with TsSKB-Progress and with the use of its in-house developed separation mechanism for nanosatellites - the FlyMate. The launch date has been rescheduled to April 2013 due to delays of the Soyuz launch vehicle primary passenger.
