Space Imaging has scheduled the launch of its second Ikonos 1-meter-resolution commercial imagery satellite for Sept. 3. The satellite is to be launched from Vandenberg AFB, Calif., on a Lockheed Martin Athena 2 booster. The first Ikonos satellite was lost in an Athena 2 mishap on Apr. 27 when an electrical malfunction caused a payload-shroud separation failure.
