The Vega rocket flight was initially scheduled for February 9th, but was postponed for February 13 because of weather conditions in French Guyana.

The Romanian satellite performed the tests and was integrated on the launcher along eight other satellites at the ESA space center in French Guyana. It is developed according to the CubeSat international standard and aims at delivering high resolution images and radiation and micro-meteorites flow measurements. It is also due to transfer data to ground stations for analysis and scientific dissemination.

An important component of the launch was the development of the ground infrastructure in two different locations - the Magurele platform near Bucharest and Marisel in Cluj county, Romania. The communication centres include radio equipment, antennas and systems due to be used during the operation phases of the satellite.
