Bridging the IT gap between rising business demands and ageing tools

Vids If you're looking for some light entertainment this fine April morning, then tune in to the live launch of the Low Orbit Helium Assisted Navigator (LOHAN) "Punch" and "Judy" test flights.

Dave Akerman and I are at Blighty's Baikonur in Herefordshire, determined to get two mighty orbs aloft. The live feed from the launch site is here. Please bear with us if the stream falls over.

Once we get in the air, the live stream will switch to the pursuit vehicle right here, and you'll be able to follow the flights on a map at spacenear.us. Live Picam images from the Punch payload will be available here.

For the radio buffs among you, the callsigns and frequencies are:

Punch

  • SPEARS: Callsign SPEARS, 434.645 MHz
  • PAVA: Callsign PUNCH, 434.495
  • Picam: Callsign RICHARD, frequency 434.525

Judy
