If all goes to plan, Arianspace Flight VS12 will have launch from the European Spaceport in French Guiana early tomorrow morning.

The nighttime lift-off is scheduled for 03:08:10 hrs Friday. The powered phase using the Soyuz lower stage three engines lasts nine minutes and is followed by two burns from the Fregat upper stage. The payload, two 715kg Galileo satellites will be released from the payload dispenser at 3hrs 48min after launch.

This is the 12th mission for Arianspace's medium-lift workhorse. The two satellites will be the fifth and sixth FOC (Full Operational Capability) satellites for Europe's Galileo navigation program and were built by OHB System with navigation paylods designed and built by Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd.
