New Launch Period (All Year Round) for H-IIA / H-IIB Launch Vehicle

Launch period for the H-IIA and the H-IIB had been limited to only specific periods for 190 days per year due to fishermen union issues.

As a result of long term negotiation between the fishermen union and Japanese government including JAXA, however, such launch period has been extended from the previous 190 days to all year round since April 2011.
