by | Mar 7, 2022 | Seradata News, Suborbital

The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) aka North Korea,  announced the nation had conducted the second of two suborbital flights to test out technology for a new “reconnaissance satellite.”  The announcement by DPRK is thought to refer to the suborbital flight on 4 March which reached an altitude of 560 km after its launch from the Sunan region in Pyongyang. This was the second test flight in just over a week. The previous one occurred on 26 February and had a similar purpose.  That was announced as a test of the “photographing system, data transmission system and attitude control devices”.  The exact launch vehicle used is not yet known.
