Constellation completed: The successful launch of the fifth SAR-Lupe satellite on 22 July completes Germany’s first satellite-based reconnaissance system. As was the case for the previous four radar satellites, the DLR's German Space Control Center (Deutsches Raumfahrt-Kontrollzentrum) in Oberpfaffenhofen is responsible for putting it into operation.
