MOSCOW (BNS): The Russian Soyuz -2.1a spacecraft with six US Globalstar-2 communications satellites has successfully lifted off from the Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan on Wednesday, a media report said.

The launch which was initially scheduled for July 11 was later delayed for a single day due to some technical glitches.

According to RIA Novosti, the separation of the satellites from the Fregat booster is scheduled for 4039 hrs GMT.

Once the satellites reach the targeted orbit, the respective company will take over control of the satellite.

Globalstar is a low-earth orbit (LEO) satellite-based telecommunications system founded by US-based Loral Corporation and Qualcomm Inc.

It provides high-quality satellite voice and data services across North America, and to over 120 countries worldwide, it said.
