Launch Postponement of the KIZUNA (WINDS) by H-IIA Launch Vehicle No. 14

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. and the Japan Aerospace Exploration
Agency would like to announce that we have decided to postpone the
launch of the super high-speed Internet satellite "KIZUNA" (WINDS) by
H-IIA Launch Vehicle No. 14 (H-IIA F14) as an incompatibility was
found with the gas jet thruster for second stage attitude control when
propellant loading operations for the thruster were being carried out
last night. Since it is expected to take time to deal with the problem,
we decided to postpone the launch.

The launch was originally scheduled for February 15, 2008 (Japan
Standard Time, JST.)

The new launch date will be announced as soon as it is determined.
