UoSAT-12 (1999)

First commercial organisation to launch on the Kosmotras DNEPR launch vehicle, UoSAT-12 (1999)

The launch of UoSAT-12 represented the first commercial mission for the former Soviet Union's arsenal of SS-18 Satan missiles (all of which have to be destroyed or used for peaceful purposes under the START arms reduction treaty). The Dnepr launch vehicle was created in 1997 under an agreement between the Russian and Ukrainian space agencies.
