Japan successfully launched the H2A rocket carrying an optical satellite for intelligence-gathering purposes, aimed at monitoring military movements in North Korea and improving responses to natural disasters.

The satellite program was initiated after a North Korean missile flew over Japan in 1998, and Japan plans to establish a network of 10 satellites for early warning of possible missile launches.

The government aims to reinforce its intelligence capability in the face of an increasingly severe security environment and growing natural disaster risks. (Trending: Trump Defies Court And Delivers Closing Argument At Civil Fraud Trial)

“With the security environment surrounding Japan becoming increasingly severe and uncertain and growing natural disaster risks, intelligence satellites are crucial for foreign affairs, defense and security as well as disaster response purposes,” Cabinet Satellite Intelligence Center senior official Hiroki Yasuda said.

“We need to steadily reinforce our intelligence capability.”

Additionally, Japan’s national security strategy involves deploying long-range U.S.-made cruise missiles to enhance strike capability.

The successful launch is significant for the development of Japan’s new flagship H3 rocket, planned for February 15, and boosts motivation for its success.
