Turkish Cargo raised the bar to the space for sensitive and complex cargo transportation. The air cargo brand transported Sich-2-30, the Earth observation satellite developed by Ukraine, to Miami for its launch with a connection flight at Istanbul.
The satellite, which was developed as part of the National Targeted Scientific and Technical Space Program of Ukraine, will blast off at the launch area at the Kennedy Space Center (USA) in January 2022. After its orbit, the Earth observation satellite will capture the digital and infrared images of the Earth’s surface and collect generic data by probing the ionosphere parameters.
Sich-2-30 Earth Observation Satellite, for facilitating loading and unloading operations, was dismantled into multiple components, and the components of the satellite were placed carefully on 2 separate pallets together with the supplies in order to avoid any damage during the transportation. The transportation of the spacecraft, loaded on the Turkish Cargo aircraft by related experts, was conducted successfully.
Turkish Cargo uses special equipment for the product shipments requiring maximum attention and sensitivity, and it constantly monitors every movement of valuable cargo stored in sensitive cargo storehouses via cameras located in and around the storage facilities.
