Another Ariane 5 Begins Its Initial Build-Up At The Spaceport

June 6, 2012 - Ariane Flight VA208

The fourth Ariane 5 for launch by Arianespace in 2012 is beginning to take shape with the assembly start-up of this heavy-lift vehicle at the Spaceport in French Guiana, which will orbit a dual-passenger payload later in the year.

During activity inside the Spaceports Launcher Integration Building this week, the Ariane 5s core cryogenic stage was removed from its protective shipping container and raised into position over one of two operational mobile launch tables.

This step enabled rollout of the two solid propellant boosters for mating to the core stage. It is to be followed by integration of the cryogenic upper stage and vehicle equipment bay completing the basic assembly for this Ariane 5 ECA version of Arianespace's workhorse launcher, and clearing the way for a subsequent transfer to the Final Assembly Building for payload integration.

This upcoming flight, which is designated VA208, will mark the 208th launch of an Ariane family vehicle since the maiden liftoff of an Ariane 1 version in 1979.

Intelsat 20 On Launch Pad

Today we rolled the rocket out to the launch pad.Preparations for this activity start early in the morning, the weather is verified again to make sure it is safe to move the rocket from its safe and environmentally controlled environment inside the final assembly building to the outside world.Once the "all clear" is given, the whole system (rocket, mast, and launch table) weighing in at 2000 tons makes it way to the launch pad on the 2.5km rail system linking the final assembly building with the launch pad at a maximum rate of 3km/hr.This is the Ariane V way of doing things, other launch systems send the rocket out to the pad on a transporter/erector and then secure it to launch table and mast.So this is a unique process in the business.Once the rocket has safely arrived at the launch pad, the spacecraft teams are given the go-ahead to power-up their satellites and begin the final round of spacecraft tests before the final countdown.We will complete these tests late tonight, and then return to the operation center to start the final countdown tomorrow.Wish us good luck.

In post-launch comments from the Spaceport, Arianespace Chairman & CEO Jean-Yves Le Gall paid homage to all who contribute to Ariane 5s successes, from the mission personnel in Europe and the launch teams in French Guiana to Europes industrial suppliers, as well as the European Space Agency and Frances CNES space agency which have played key roles in the launchers development and operation.

"Thanks to all you in Europe and French Guiana, Ariane 5 is something that works, works very well and will continue to work for a long time, he added. Following tonights launch, and with all of the contracts weve signed since the start of this year, our order book effectively covers no less than 19 firm Ariane 5 launches, which guarantees us more than three years of activity. Therefore, thank you and bravo to everyone!

The numbers from Ariane 5s unbroken string of 50 mission successes are impressive.

In its most frequent role as the launcher of choice for telecommunications and TV broadcast satellite operators and manufacturers worldwide, Ariane 5 has delivered platforms with a total equivalent relay capacity of well over 3,200 transponders, channels and beams for both civil and military users.

The largest payload lofted by Ariane 5 is Europes Automated Transfer Vehicle for servicing of the International Space Station, with the heaviest of the three orbited so far weighing more than 19,700 kg.; while the smallest were piggyback satellites such as Spain's Nanosat, with had a liftoff mass of less than 20 kg.

Le Gall said todays mission also was historic from another aspect, as its lift performance of nearly 10.2 metric tons beat the worlds record for total mass launched to geostationary transfer orbit. We captured the previous record last year with just over 10 tons, and this demonstrates the pertinence of our improvement strategy, which step-by-step enables us to increase the capacity of our launcher while retaining its extraordinary reliability.

Intelsat 20 was installed as the upper payload on this latest Ariane 5 launch, and was released first during the mission at 28 minutes into the flight. Built for international satellite operator Intelsat by Space Systems/Loral of Palo Alto, California based on its 1300-series platform, Intelsat 20 weighed approximately 6,090 kg. at liftoff, and is configured with Ku-band, C-band and Ka-band transponders. Intended to replace the Intelsat 7 and Intelsat 10 satellites in orbit, Intelsat 20 is to provide video, telephone and data transmission services for Europe, Africa, Russia, Asia and the Middle East.

Two key customers on Ariane 5s milestone mission

According to Le Gall, today marks the 53rd time Intelsat has placed its confidence in Arianespaces launch services. In fact, more than one payload in six launched by Ariane vehicles from the beginning have been for Intelsat, he continued. This proves, more than any words, the quality and intensity of our relationship. And with a satellite as powerful as Intelsat 20, built by Space Systems/Loral, we are certain that Intelsat will be able to respond to the growing demands of its customers in particular for the African continent.

The HYLAS 2 satellite orbited by Ariane 5 on todays flight was deployed 34 minutes after liftoff, and will be used by European satellite operator Avanti Communications. Produced by Orbital Sciences Corporation of Dulles, Virginia using the Star 2.4E platform, HYLAS 2 is equipped with Ka-band transponders for data capacity offered to telecommunications, enterprise and government customers in Europe, the Middle East and portions of Africa.

Le Gall, who put on a special hat with the 50th success logo for Ariane 5, noted that Arianespace also orbited Avanti Communications first satellite HYLAS 1 on an Ariane 5 mission in 2010. We are very proud that to have been chosen by Avanti in contributing to the development of very high-speed data services, he added.

For todays 64th mission of an Ariane 5 and the 208th flight overall of an Ariane family vehicle the heavy-lift launchers estimated orbital parameters at the injection of its cryogenic upper stage were:

- Perigee: 249.9 km. for a target of 249.5 km.
- Apogee: 35,960 km. for a target of 35,934 km.
- Inclination: 5.99 deg. for a target of 6.00 deg.

Following this success the fourth for Ariane 5 in 2012 Arianespaces mission pace will continue with its next two flights announced for September: the September 21 launch of another Ariane 5 from the Spaceport with the Astra 2F and GSAT-10 telecommunications relay platforms; and the September 17 mission of a Soyuz from Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, performed by Arianespace's Starsem affiliate and carrying Eumetsat's MetOp-B meteorological satellite.

Arianespace Launch A Success: Ariane 5 ECA Orbits INTELSAT 20 And HYLAS 2 Satellites

Kourou, August 2, 2012

On Thursday, August 2, 2012, Arianespace successfully launched two communications satellites: INTELSAT 20 for the international satellite operator Intelsat, and HYLAS 2 for the European operator Avanti.

[attachment=5420]

50th successful launch in a row

Today's successful mission, the 50th in a row for the European launcher, once again proves the reliability and availability of the Ariane 5 launch system. It also confirms that Arianespace continues to set the global standard, guaranteeing independent access to space for all customers, including national and international space agencies, private operators and governments.

Arianespace's latest successful mission, the fourth Ariane 5 launch in 2012, also further confirms the system's operational capabilities. Ariane 5 is the only commercial satellite launcher now on the market capable of simultaneously launching two payloads and handling a complete range of missions, from launches of commercial satellites into geostationary orbit, to dedicated launches into special orbits.

Record payload

The 64th Ariane 5 launch set a new record for payload mass injected into geostationary transfer order. It carried a total payload of 10,182 kg, including 9,405 kg for the two satellites INTELSAT 20 and HYLAS 2, which were released into their targeted orbits.

Loyal customers

Arianespace offers the launch services that best match the demanding requirements of leading operators worldwide.

INTELSAT 20 will join the large fleet of satellites already deployed by this major international operator. Arianespace has worked with Intelsat in a relationship of mutual trust for nearly 30 years, launching some 53 satellites in all, including 40 over the last 20 years.

HYLAS 2 is the second satellite to be launched for the new European operator Avanti, which also called on Arianespace to launch its first satellite, HYLAS 1, in November 2010.

INTELSAT 20/HYLAS 2 mission at a glance

The mission was carried out by an Ariane 5 ECA launcher from Europe's Spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana. Liftoff was on Thursday, August 2, 2012 at 5:54 pm local time in Kourou (4:54 pm in Washington, D.C., 20:54 UT, 10:54 pm in Paris, and on Friday, August 3 at 5:54 am in Tokyo).

INTELSAT 20 will provide a broad range of video, telephone and data transmission services for Europe, the Middle East, Russia and Asia. A very powerful satellite built by Space Systems/Loral of the United States using its 1300 platform, INTELSAT 20 weighed 6,094 kg at launch. It will enable Intelsat to extend its global C and Ku-band coverage. INTELSAT 20 has a design life exceeding 18 years.

HYLAS 2, equipped with 24 Ka-band transponders, will provide high-speed broadband services across all of Europe, eastern Africa, South Africa and the Middle East. It was built by Orbital Sciences Corporation using a Star-2 platform and weighed 3,311 kg at launch. HYLAS 2 has a design life exceeding 15 years.

Successful Launch Of Intelsat 20 Continues Service For Africa's Leading Video Neighborhood Through 2027 And Beyond

Luxembourg, 2 August 2012

Intelsat S.A., the worlds leading provider of satellite services, announced today that an Ariane 5 V208 launch vehicle successfully launched the Intelsat 20 satellite from Kourou, French Guiana. Liftoff occurred at 4:54 p.m. EDT. 28 minutes after launch, at 5:22 p.m. EDT, the Intelsat 20 satellite separated from the rockets upper stage and continued its ascent toward geosynchronous orbit. Signal acquisition occurred at 5:33 pm EDT.

Built by Space Systems/Loral, Intelsat 20 will provide C-band and Ku-band for DTH television, cellular backhaul and VSAT services. The Intelsat 20 video neighborhood provides premium programming that is carried by the top Indian cable MSOs and DTH operators, reaching more than an estimated 90 million Pay-TV subscribers across India. Intelsat 20 also hosts the largest DTH platform in Africa.

Once operational in September, Intelsat 20 will replace Intelsat 7 and Intelsat 10 at 68.5 East, and is expected to have a service life of more than 18 years.

"With C-band coverage over four continents and four regionally focused Ku-band beams, Intelsat 20 provides enhanced replacement capacity for our prime video neighborhood at 68.5 East for DTH and distribution services," said Intelsat CEO David McGlade.

Intelsat 20 is the third of five launches planned for 2012. Intelsat 21 and Intelsat 23 are also scheduled for launch in the third quarter.

New Satellite Launches For DStv

Cape Town - When the main rocket lifted off at 22:53 on Thursday from Arianespace's French Guiana's Space Centre, a new chapter started for MultiChoice, finally getting more direct-to-home (DTH) satellite pay TV capacity with the successful launch of Intelsat 20.

The main rocket, with the DStv logo and the South African flag proudly on the side, lifted off as scheduled from the Guiana's Space Centre in South America, taking the geostationary communications satellite Intelsat 20, or IS-20, to orbit and with it the promise of more TV channels, more high definition (HD) TV channels, and more sound and video services for South African TV viewers in the near future.

Most powerful satellite

"Everything's normal," announced ground control at Guiana Space Centre after the successful launch of IS-20, although everything about this new communications satellite is actually extraordinary.

Not only is Intelsat 20 in fact Intelsat's most powerful satellite ever, the IS-20 is also Africa's largest DTH platform ever.

The IS-20 has also been built to serve and be operational for 24 years a record period. Its deployment brings a much-needed, and previously secured, capacity boost for MultiChoice which has run out of available satellite broadband capacity.

As the most powerful satellite in the Intelsat fleet, all of MultiChoice's existing services - with the pay TV platform currently using Intelsat 10 and Intelsat 7 for DStv will be migrated to the IS-20.

Besides moving over the existing services, there's also more capacity.

New bandwidth capacity

The successful launch of the IS-20 comes just in time for MultiChoice, which has been running low on available satellite bandwidth.

High definition channel roll-out had to be slow for the pay TV operator, just as the possibility, application and demand for interactive services and more TV channels are mushrooming - together with the fast growth and uptake of DStv by pay TV consumers in South Africa and across the continent who want, and are willing to pay, for more and better television.

Enhancing its offering

With the increased capacity DStv subscribers can expect a better alignment of the service, in time, to more closely emulate the operations and services of satellite pay TV operators in comparable countries and markets such as Australia and Britain.

MultiChoice has done well in the way the pay TV platform has utilised its existing capacity up until now in terms of content-mix and pacing; new capacity will allow it to enhance its offering even further.

At the subscriber-end in terms of consumer interface a new "channel shuffle" or regrouping and realignment of TV channels available on DStv should take place to create new "space" and wider number blocks before new channels and simulcast high definition channels are added.

After the addition of Discovery HD Showcase MultiChoice will not again add another permanent HD bespoke channel and will concentrate on populating its new available channel realm with "upgraded" concurrently-run HD versions of existing channels.

Space Systems/Loral Built Satellite For Intelsat Successfully Launched, Begins Post-Launch Maneuvers

Palo Alto, Calif. August 6, 2012 - Space Systems/Loral (SS/L), the worlds leading provider of commercial satellites, today announced that the Intelsat 20 satellite, designed and built for Intelsat S.A., the worlds leading provider of satellite services, was launched on Thursday, August 2, and is successfully performing post-launch maneuvers according to plan. The satellite deployed its solar arrays on schedule following its launch aboard an Ariane 5 launch vehicle provided by Arianespace from the European Spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana, and has begun firing its main thruster to complete its travel to geostationary orbit.

Intelsat 20 is the 47th spacecraft that SS/L has provided to Intelsat and it is the most powerful satellite in the Intelsat fleet. From its orbital slot at 68.5 degrees East longitude, it will provide high-power distribution of video, voice, and data network services in C- and Ku-bands across four continents.

"The launch of Intelsat 20 is one more testament to the success of our longstanding relationship with Intelsat and our ability to work together as a team," said John Celli, president of Space Systems/Loral. "It is always an honor for us to help support Intelsats efforts to provide a critical layer to the global communications infrastructure."

The Intelsat 20 video neighborhood provides premium content that is carried by Indias leading cable MSOs and DTH operators, reaching more than an estimated 90 million Pay-TV subscribers across India. Intelsat 20 also hosts the largest DTH platform in Africa.

The satellite is based on the Space Systems/Loral 1300 platform which has the flexibility to provide a broad range of high performance applications. It will replace Intelsat 10 and Intelsat 7, and is expected to have a service life of more than 18 years.

DStv Services To Migrate To New Satellite By 1 October

From 1 October 2012, MultiChoice's DStv services will migrate from the current satellites, IS10 and IS7, to a new satellite, IS20, which will give the company the capacity to offer more channels and services in the future.

The IS20 satellite has a Southern Africa footprint and is expected to have a lifespan of approximately 15 years. It has 24 C-band and 60 Ku-band transponders. The company will use the Ku-band for its direct-to-home television services. The satellite was launched on an Ariane rocket from French Guiana in South America on 2 August 2012.

"We have made a significant investment in this satellite and we will continue to invest in new technology. We constantly innovate to improve the DStv viewing experience as we want our customers to have access to the best entertainment delivered through the best technology available," said Collins Khumalo, CEO of MultiChoice South Africa.

The increased capacity on the new satellite will enable it to expand its high definition (HD) offering and add more channels and services. Six standard definition (SD) and seven HD channels will be added to DStv on 1 October 2012, bringing the number of HD channels on DStv to 14. The additional HD channels include two from NBC Universal: Studio Universal and Universal and five MNet Movie channels.

Shared services need to upgrade

To make space on the DStv platform for future additional channels and group relevant channels together, some channel numbers will be moved around.

The changes will happen automatically in the early morning hours of Monday 1 October. Its customers are advised to access the information about their specific decoder on DStv.com or press
OK on their DStv remote to see if any action is required on their part.

Customers, who live in a complex or flat where they don't have their own dish, will have to request their body corporate to upgrade their system before 1 October 2012. These customers can SMS their email address to DStv at 32444.

"We are really excited about the new satellite and the additional capacity that comes with it. We have reorganised channel numbers to improve the overall navigation experience and to ensure that the DStv platform is set up for future growth," adds Khumalo.

HD and SD on the same channel number

Whilst some channels are being moved around, the station is also taking the opportunity to put HD and SD channels on the same channel number. For example, M-Net and M-Net HD will be on channel 101 from 1 October 2012. This means that if you are a Premium customer, with an HD PVR, you will receive M-Net HD on channel 101, whilst a customer with an SD decoder will get M-Net on channel 101 from 1 October.

The only exceptions will be Discovery HD Showcase, which is not available in SD and SuperSport HD channels, which are not scheduled with the same content as the SD channels.

Themed movie channels

The station will also replace its MM1 and MM2 movie offering and expand it to six movie channels, one premiere and five themed channels: Action +, Family, Comedy, M Drama and Romance, and Showcase. These channels will all be available in HD.

The October Dish Magazine will reflect the updated channel numbers. The online and mobile TV guides will update within hours of the change, as will the TV Guides on the decoders.

Channel numbers

Channel 101 to 143: General Entertainment: international content
Channel 144 to 169: General Entertainment: local content
Channel 170 to 190: Documentaries and Lifestyle
Channel 191 to 195: Free-to-Air channels eg SABC and e.tv
Channel 198 to 199: Events Channels
Channel 200 to 221: SuperSport channels including SuperSport HD Channels
