The International Telecommunication Union received notification from North Korea of its planned satellite launch, the Geneva-based organization confirmed today (Monday).

The DPRK’s launch notification says the “Kwangmyongsong-3″ satellite is scheduled for launch around April 12 to 16th, a spokesman for the U.N. organization said via e-mail.

It states the satellite is being launched in “pursuant of the State plan for space development,” which mirrors last week's official launch announcement.

The satellite will broadcast remote data in the UHF band and video in the X-band, the ITU quoted the DPRK’s notification as saying.

DPRK will likely use ITU satellite allocations (UHF, X)
