Vega will lift off from Europe’s Spaceport in French Guiana carrying Earth observation satellite Pléiades Neo-4 and four auxiliary payloads to their planned Sun-synchronous orbits. Bro-4 rides alongside three other CubeSats developed through ESA: SunStorm, RadCube, and LEDSat.

SunStorm and RadCube will demonstrate miniaturized space weather instruments for use in later operational space weather missions.

LEDSat, a student project from La Sapienza, University of Rome, Italy, is supported by the ESA Education Office via the Fly Your Satellite! program. This CubeSat will investigate Light Emitting Diodes as a way of tracking satellites in low orbit.

This Vega mission will last about 105 minutes.
