MOSCOW (Itar-Tass): A Russian rocket will be launched from the Plesetsk spaceport in June to deliver a Japanese satellite to orbit, a source at the Khrunichev Aerospace Center has said.

"The Japanese satellite was brought to Russia in the end of April in preparations for the launch," he said.

"The Briz-M booster unit was delivered to the spaceport by railroad the day earlier."

Reliability Verification Integrated System in the space environment (Space Environment Reliability Verification Integrated System - SERVIS) is being developed by the Institute for Unmanned Space Experiment Free Flyer (USEF) under a contract with the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO).

The aim of this project is to compile a database of components, development of criteria for their assessment and design principles using equipment purchased components, commercially available (COTS), for their further use in space technology.

SERVIS program began in 1999 and will last until 2011. It was planned to launch two satellites within that period. The first one was launched by a Rocket in October 2003 under a contract with AC Eurockot and successfully completed a two-year mission in orbit.
