“The design engineering bureau "Southern" consulted with SpaceX, and SpaceX forwarded the task of adapting the satellite for launch to its division in Germany. So, the total amount of the contract today is $ 1,99 million. This amount is already considering all the technical issues related to the launch of the satellite,” the head of the agency Volodymyr Taftay said.
