EgyptSat-2 (MisrSat-2) will image the Earth surface in the visible and infra-red range (with a one-meter panchromatic resolution and a four-meter multispectral resolution)

The Energia Rocket and Space Corporation accomplished a full cycle of ground tests, assembly and factory trials of a next-generation observation satellite in 2013, a corporation spokesman told Interfax-AVN on Monday.

"The observation satellite designed by the corporation will be put into orbit in spring 2014," he said.

Meanwhile, a source from the Russian rocket and space industry told Interfax-AVN it was "the EgyptSat-2 Earth observation satellite designed and constructed by the Energia Corporation."

"It was initially planned to launch the satellite with a Soyuz-U rocket from Baikonur in late December 2013. The launch was delayed until April 2014 for doing additional works on the satellite," he said.
