08 deg east USC was established by ISAS in February 1962 and officially opened in December 1963. Originally known as the Kagoshima Space Center, the launch site was renamed in October 2003. The primary purpose of the facility was originally to launch atmospheric sounding rockets and meteorological rockets. Later the site was used for launching satellites into low Earth orbit; the first six Japanese satellites were launched from Uchinoura. The main purpose of USC is now to launch scientific payloads, such as astronomical survey satellites and planetary probes.

Vpical missions are launched southeasterly into LEO (low Earth) orbits between 57 and 70 deg inclination. The orbital launch complexes are oriented toward the southeast, and the downrange instrumentation is also oriented in that direction. The desert terrain to the west allows the firing of surface-to-surfacemissiles within ranges of up to 1100 nautical miles inside Chinese territory. Facilities JSLC’s facilities provide support to every phase of a satellite launch campaign. They include technical centers, launch complexes, launch control centers, a mission command and control center, propellant fueling system, communications systems, a gas supply system, a weather forecast system, and a logistics support system.

That program originated in 1955, when a group of scientists and engineers from the University of Tokyo launched a 23 cm, solid-propulsion sounding rocket, dubbed the “pencil rocket,” to study the atmosphere. The launch was initiated by Professor Hideo Itokawa and a team of volunteers as an engineering research project. This first venture into space exploration followed the resumption of aeronautical research in the aftermath of post-World War 11restrictions that had been placed on Japan by the Allies.
