South Korea plans to launch the second reconnaissance satellite in the US tomorrow morning.

The South Korean Ministry of National Defense said that the second military reconnaissance satellite will be launched at around 7:00 p.m. US time on Sunday (7th) at the Kennedy Space Center in the US, which is around 7:00 a.m. Hong Kong time on Monday (8th), and it will be carried and launched using SpaceX's "Falcon 9" launch vehicle.

Yonhap News Agency reported earlier that unlike the Reconnaissance Satellite 1, which carries electronic optical (EO) and infrared (IR) equipment, Reconnaissance Satellite 2 will carry synthetic aperture radar (SAR).
