Japan has launched its first military communications satellite on Tuesday in order to improve the broadband capacity of its Self Defence Forces.
The satellite took off from the Tanegashima spaceport on an H-IIA rocket at around 7:44 am GMT.
The ministry says it is the first of three satellites that will replace three civilian ones now used by Japan's military. It was built by DSN Corporation for the Japanese Ministry of Defence.
The ministry planned to launch Kirameki-1 past year but it is undergoing repairs after being damaged when being transported to a launch site in French Guiana. On the other hand, Kirameki-3 is meant to be launched in 2021.
The satellite is one of three planned "X-band satellites".
