For its 10th and final launch of the year - and the fifth in 2020 with the Soyuz medium launcher - Arianespace will send the CSO-2 Earth observation satellite, intended for defense and security applications, into Sun-synchronous orbit.

CSO-2 will be launched for the French CNES (Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales) space agency and the DGA (Direction generale de l'armement) defense procurement agency on behalf of the French Ministry of Defense.

With this new launch at the service of France's defense requirements, as well as for the capacity needs of several partner countries, Arianespace guarantees French and European autonomous access to space - a strategic priority.

Flight VS25 will be performed from the Soyuz Launch Complex (ELS) in Sinnamary, French Guiana.
