The H-IIA rocket is Japan's primary large-scale launch vehicle, which uses liquid oxygen and liquid hydrogen as a propellant. It was developed by JAXA, building upon the technology developed for Japan's first, purely domestic launch vehicle, the H-II. H-IIA202, with two solid boosters, has launch capability of 4 tonnes to a geostationary transfer orbit, and the H-IIA204, with four sold boosters, has launch capability of 6 tonnes. The LE-5B second-stage engine is restartable, and can accommodate multiple launch missions. After the technology transfer from JAXA, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. took over the H-IIA launch service operations, starting with the launch of H-IIA Launch Vehicle No.13 in 2007. In 2009, the company signed a contract with its first international client, after receiving a launch order for South Korea's Earth observing satellite KOMPSAT-3, which is scheduled for launch with JAXA's Earth observing satellite GCOM-W in 2011.
