The RazakSAT satellite was designed and built by Astronautic Technology (M) Sdn Bhd (ATSB), a pioneer and leader in the design and manufacture of satellites in Malaysia.
It was successfully launched by SpaceX on a Falcon 1 Flight 5 launch vehicle and then precisely placed Malaysia's RazakSAT into Earth's Near Equatorial Orbit.
Falcon 1 is a two-stage, liquid oxygen/rocket-grade kerosene vehicle designed and manufactured by SpaceX, lifted off Monday, July 13th 2009 at 8:35 pm (PDT). Lift off occurred from the Reagan Test Site (RTS) on Omelek Island at the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll (USAKA) in the Pacific Ocean, approximately 2,500 miles southwest of Hawaii.
“This marks another successful launch by ATSB,” said Dato' Dr. Ahmad Sabirin Arshad, CEO of ATSB. “We are pleased to announce that Malaysia's RazakSAT, aboard Falcon 1, has achieved its intended orbit.”
