Longueuil, Quebec, April 16, 2019 — The satellites of the RADARSAT Constellation Mission (RCM) are scheduled to launch into space at the end of May or early June 2019, aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from the Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

Media representatives are invited to witness the launch in person. As the launch site is on an American air force base, each guest must be cleared by U.S. Air Force security to attend the launch.

To begin the accreditation process, media representatives who are interested must send an email to the Canadian Space Agency's Media Relations Office at asc.medias-media.csa@canada.ca no later than April 18, 2019, at noon (ET).
