It became known that the space agencies of Ukraine and Canada signed a statement of partnership for the construction of a launch complex in Nova Scotia.
According to RBC, the partners even laid the “first stone” of the spaceport. This project is being implemented by the Canadian company Maritime Launch Services. The Ukrainian launch vehicle Cyclone 4M will be used at the launch site in Nova Scotia. The launch pad command center will be named after the former head of the Yug design bureau, Alexander Degtyarev.
It is noted that this project will “load the production capacity of Ukrainian enterprises.”
Let us recall that Cyclone-4M is a two-stage medium-class launch vehicle that has been designed at Yuzhnoye Design Bureau since 2017. The rocket will be able to launch 3,700 kilograms of cargo into an orbit with an altitude of 450 kilometers, and 3,000 kilograms into an orbit with an altitude of 1,200 kilometers.
