The two Galileo In-Orbit Validation satellites depicted under their Soyuz launch fairing, put in place on 12 October 2011. The satellites are secured for launch using a custom-built dispenser atop their Fregat-MT upper stage. The entire 'Upper Composite' will then be mated with the three-stage Soyuz ST-B launcher.
