Information Intelsat 904 (60.0E)
[Image: 34pc9c8.jpg]

Satellite: Intelsat 904

Intelsat 904 is the third satellite in the IX series, and the 27th satellite SS/L has delivered to the international satellite operator since 1980. With the delivery of all seven spacecraft in the Intelsat IX series, SS/L will have built 31 spacecraft for Intelsat, nearly half of its historical fleet, and significantly more than any other manufacturer. The remaining four satellites in the series will be completed and launched later this year.

Intelsat 904 will provide service to Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia from its orbital position at 60 degrees East longitude.

Each of the new Intelsat IX series satellites carries 76 C-band and 24 Ku-band operating transponders (in 36MHz equivalents), and its solar arrays will generate more than 8.6 kilowatts of power (beginning of life). The Intelsat IX series of spacecraft carries a much greater percentage of high-power amplifiers and generates more solar array power than its predecessors with only a small increase in dry mass.

The increased power and efficiency of the Intelsat IX spacecraft will provide better coverage and stronger signals to help satisfy the burgeoning global appetite for digital services, smaller earth stations, and specialized communications services. They are replacing the Intelsat VI satellites, now on orbit, to provide enhanced voice, video, and data transmission services across the globe.

The spacecraft is based on SS/L's space-proven 1300 geostationary satellite platform, which has an excellent record of reliable operation. The 1300 is designed to achieve a long useful life, in this case 13 years, excellent station-keeping, and orbital stability by using bipropellant propulsion and momentum-bias systems. A system of high efficiency solar arrays and batteries provides uninterrupted electrical power. In all, SS/L satellites have amassed a total of more than 900 years of on-orbit service.

Arianespace Flight 148: 20th Intelsat Launch

Kourou, February 23 , 2002

Early this morning, Arianespace orbited the Intelsat 904 communications satellite for international communications provider Intelsat.

20th launch for Intelsat, Arianespace's first customer
Intelsat 904 is the third satellite to be launched in the Intelsat IX series, the new generation of satellite deployed by this global communications provider , and was the 20th Intelsat satellite to be launched by Ariane.

The collaboration between Arianespace and Intelsat reaches back to 1983. Sixty percent of the Intelsat satellites in operation today were orbited by the European launcher, making it Arianespace's largest customer. The first series IX satellite, Intelsat 901, was launched by Arianespace on June 9th, 2001 (Flight 141), followed by Intelsat 902 on August 30th 2001 (Flight 143).

Three more Intelsat IX satellites are scheduled for an Arianespace launch.

Intelsat 904 is Arianespace's second successful launch in 2002.

Following Flight 148, Arianespace's backlog now stands at 40 satellites to be launched, plus 9 ATV missions for the International Space Station.

Flight 148 was carried out by an Ariane 44L, the version of the launcher with four liquid-propellant strap-on boosters, from Europe's Spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana. Liftoff was on February 23, 2002 at 06H59 Universal Time (3:59 am local time in Kourou, 7:59 am in Paris and 1:59 am in Washington, DC).

Provisional parameters at third stage injection were:
Perigee: 200.1 km for a target of 199.8 km (±3 km)
Apogee: 35,947 km for a target of 35,944 km (±150 km)
Inclination: 6.99 degrees for a target of 7.00 degrees (±0.06°)

The Intelsat IX series is a key to Intelsat's growth strategy. It enables the communications provider to offer customers around the world satellites which are two to three times more powerful than their predecessors, delivering better quality service and also using very competitively priced ground facilities.

Built by Space Systems/Loral in Palo Alto, California, the Intelsat 904 will be positioned at 60 degrees East. It will join Intelsat's fleet of satellites providing Internet connections, telephony, television and enterprise network services for Europe, Africa, Central Asia, the Far East and Australia. Weighing 4,680 kg. at liftoff, the Intelsat 904 is fitted with 76 C-band transponders and 22 Ku-band transponders (in 36 MHz unit equivalents). Design life in orbit is over 13 years

Intelsat Carries HDTV Programming From Antarctica To Japan

LONDON, April 1, 2003 -- Japanese television viewers who have wondered about the scenery and environment of Antarctica can now see it in high-definition TV (HDTV). Using Intelsat's capacity and Japan Telecom's antenna facilities, NHK, a pioneer in HDTV, is broadcasting environmentally focused programming from the Showa base in Antarctica back to viewing households in Japan.

NHK has set up their HDTV "Hi-Vision" Broadcasting Center in the Antarctic, and is using the Intelsat 904 satellite located at 60 degrees E to carry a variety of environmentally-themed programs aimed at increasing public awareness of the global environment. The first HD feed from the Showa base in Antarctica occurred at 2:00 p.m. on 1 February to commemorate the exact time when Japanese TV broadcasting was launched 50 years earlier on NHK, and in conjunction with the launch of Intelsat's Occasional Video Services network.

Japan Telecom is utilizing a series of short-term video leases from Intelsat, receiving the content at their Kamiyamaguchi earth station in Japan and forwarding it to NHK's studios in Tokyo. They consulted with Intelsat engineers extensively and conducted over 30 hours of testing on the satellite to ensure a high-quality signal. Additionally, they supplied a flyaway antenna suitable for operation in harsh environments and secured over 100 hours of transmission time on the 904 satellite.

"It was very important for us to secure a provider that offers a consistently reliable and high-quality signal," said Masaru Ikeo, Executive Producer Science and Environment Programs at NHK. "We are very pleased that Japan Telecom chose the Intelsat system to carry our programming, as we feel it is imperative in HDTV broadcasts to have guaranteed broadcast quality and reach, both of which Intelsat offers."

NHK's Hi-Vision Broadcasting Center at the Showa base will be operational for one year. Programming will include various live and timed broadcasts about Earth and the environment, including live coverage of auroras from both the Arctic and Antarctic, the total eclipse of the sunand simultaneous HD live feeds, including from the "Subaru" Telescope at the summit of Mauna Kea in Hawaii, Okavango Delta in Botswana and the abyss of Monterey Bay in California.

Jon Romm, Intelsat President, Video Business Unit, added, "We are pleased that NHK, as the forerunner in HDTV, recognized Intelsat's capability to serve as the appropriate transmission provider on this project. Television distributors need to be aware that Intelsat has the know-how to support HDTV broadcasting and most other video services worldwide by relying on our complete worldwide network and talented staff."

The system is being used to aid in the DNA analysis and identification efforts of British citizens in the region. Information is collected from widely dispersed locations across Thailand and sent from Phuket to specialists in the UK for analysis. The process is expected to last from three to six months.

"Loral Skynet is supporting employees of the FCO with state-of-the-art technology and experience to help Global Crossing and the Foreign Office on this important task," said Patrick Brant, president, Loral Skynet. "Loral Skynet's ability to provide an instant infrastructure is providing the British Foreign Office with critical communications links during the arduous recovery work in Southeast Asia."

Global Crossing operates the FCO Telecommunications Network (FTN), a highly secure worldwide network extending to 220 sites in 140 countries. Last year, Global Crossing commissioned a satellite earth station in Canberra, Australia, to serve posts in the Pacific islands. This global Internet Protocol-based private network is the largest outsourcing project ever awarded by the FCO, providing secure, high-speed voice, data and messaging services to more than 14,000 users in British embassies, consulates and high commissions worldwide.

In rolling out the FTN, Global Crossing maximized the unique reach of its global network, using satellite for local access in remote and under-developed regions of the world where local infrastructure is inadequate or unreliable. The versatility of the FTN has greatly improved the FCO's ability to respond to crises and international operations. Rapid-deployment satellite links were installed in the two major Iraqi cities of Basra and Baghdad at the time the Coalition Provisional Authoritywas set up, and VSAT links are used to connect Kabul in Afghanistan to the FTN.

Skynet's flexible and reliable multiplexed network provides secure, resilient, and cost-effective connectivity for both point-to-point and point- to-multipoint communications with no intervening terrestrial links. Its high rate of availability ensures support for critical communications and its dedicated bandwidth can be increased without expensive and time-consuming equipment changes.

Intelsat Restores Pakistani Connectivity Within Hours After Sea-Me-We3 Cable Failure

PEMBROKE, Bermuda, July 20, 2005 -- When the Pakistani leg of the Sea-Me-We3 cable failed recently, causing significant disruption to services provided by Pakistan Telecommunication Ltd. (PTCL), Intelsat was able to restore service to the affected country within hours.

Currently, Intelsat has established five new duplex links by utilizing its earth station in Fuchsstadt, Germany and its Intelsat 904 and Intelsat 902 satellites, located at 60 degrees E and 62 degrees E, respectively. Using its GlobalConnex(SM) infrastructure, Intelsat is providing GlobalConnex Internet Trunking services, allowing PTCL to connect to an IP backbone network and enabling the restoration of Internet traffic and call center traffic in Pakistan. PTCL had a redundant network and satellite ground equipment in place prior to the failure of Sea-Me-We3 which enabled Intelsat to get new restoration services up and running quickly.

In addition to providing its GlobalConnex Internet Trunking service, Intelsat is providing space segment capacity to restore 21 E1 duplex circuits which will be used to restore voice traffic between Pakistan and various other countries.

A representative at PTCL, stated, "We are thankful to Intelsat for its fast turnaround timeand the sense of urgency with which it treated our request. Intelsat's resources, both technical and human, allowed us to find a suitable satellite solution very quickly and begin communications again within hours."

"We are glad that we were able to successfully restore critical communications links to PTCL in its time of need," said Ramu Potarazu, COO of Intelsat, Ltd. "Nobody is happy when a network outage occurs - it has a negative impact on people and businesses by bringing all communications to a screeching halt until a solution is found. Fortunately, Intelsat is extremely skilled at the fast and seamless integration of satellite solutions; we were able to provide PTCL with a redundant network that was quick and easy to implement within hours of the failure."

RE: Intelsat 904 (60.0E)
SADIS Feature

THE METEROLOGICAL Office, September 1, 2005 -- The UK's national weather service, the Met Office, has launched a new version of its satellite-distribution weather advice service. The new upgraded SADIS2G (second generation) is being rolled out to air traffic control units (ATCs) and will gradually supersede the existing SADIS system. It is expected that all users of the original SADIS will moved onto the new version by the end of December 2008. The intention of the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) and ICAO is that there will be no additional new users of the original SADIS.

SADIS, or SAtellite DIStribution, provides 24-hour information from an Intelsat 904 satellite based above the Indian Ocean. It offers customers ATCs and airlines--data on a range of factors, including winds in the upper atmosphere, temperatures and significant weather events and allows airlines to make safety-critical and operational decisions as well as enabling them to improve route planning and streamline costs. The system has coverage for 60% of the earth's surface, ranging from eastern Atlantic, Cape Verde (20[degrees] W) to central Australia (140[degrees] E). Two similar satellites located over the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans provide the complementary ISCS service, which covers the rest of the world.

SADIS2G comprises alphanumeric OPMET (OPerational METeorological) data, such as aerodrome meteorological reports and forecasts and SIGMET warning messages. It is a dedicated ICAO system, regulated and controlled under ICAO Standards and Recommended Practices.

The new SADIS2G system is engineered around 'open source' protocols and formats, including the use of Internet protocol (IP). This avoids locking users into proprietary systems and resolves the problem of obsolescence in SADIS hardware. It is designed to distribute essential World Area Forecast System (WAFS) products and global OPMET data to ATC desktops, and enables the Met Office-based WAFC (World Area Forecast Centre) London to distribute data to more than 90 ICAO states in Africa, Europe and western Asia--the rest of the world is covered by WAFC Washington, supported by the US National Weather Service. These systems are broadcast only, which means that two-way communication between the client end system and the host does not occur. As a result data is presented as 'spoofed' IP, or 'spoofed' X.25. The OPMET data goes through a real-time quality controller via NATS, which sends the data on to the Met Office. SADIS 2G is non-prescriptive and can easily be integrated into other systems. Data output can be configured to a number of common protocols, including UDP multicast, WMO TCP/IP or X.25 PVCs. SADIS 2G uses existing available bandwidth on the same satellite lease, which is used to provide the 1G service. No additional purchase of bandwidth was required.

"SADIS 1G hardware is largely obsolete in the sense that it is very costly to maintain, and there are few options for supplying new systems," said Richard Orrell, senior international aviation analyst at the Met Office. "It was becoming very difficult to source new hardware. SADIS 2G is a 'future proof' system, and the modulation and protocols differ from SADIS 1G. The new hardware uses modern up-to-date technology and economies of scale ensure that the compatible receivers are of high quality."

The Met Office charges nothing to individual users. Instead, its costs involved in the provision of the operational broadcast are recovered through an international cost recovery scheme managed through ICAO. Ultimately these costs are recovered on route charges. The whole SADIS service is provided to the civil aviation community at a cost of approximately GBPounds 500,000. SADIS 2G hardware typically costs GBPounds 3,000-5,000, at least 50% cheaper than the cost of comparable 1G hardware.

One of the cost benefits for ATCs is the ability to make real-time benefits by enabling them to improve route planning and streamline costs. It also allows airlines to make safety-critical and operational decisions by providing data on winds in the upper atmosphere and temperatures, and significant weather events. "It's managed by ICAO's international steering group, so the mechanism exists for SADIS2G users and ICAO members to feed the requirements into it," said Mr Orrell. "It's very open, transparent and democratic. The data is constantly evolving. In the past we would use the T-4 pre-determined areas but now users can get the raw data and they can visualise it over user-defined areas."

The roll-out of SADIS 2G is in its early stages and is being obtained by users through third parties. So far, there are only two installations to date in Western Europe: Meteo Suisse, the Swiss National Meteorological Centre, and Belgocontrol, the ATC for Belgium up to 8,000 metres.

Belgocontrol is facing initial problems with data reception but expects these to be swiftly resolved. "SADIS is a vital system for us as it provides us with all meteorological data needed to prepare briefing and flight documentation for pre-flight planning and in-flight replanning for international aviation," said Wim Demol, of Belgocontrol's Meteorological Department. "The upper level winds and temperature forecasts are directly used by Belgocontrol and Eurocontrol ATC units for the calculation of Estimated Times Overhead route points. Incorrect winds and temperatures would mean that all time related events and information is wrong. This can have negative effects. It could we mean get in touch with the next ATC unit at the wrong time and would mean we give them an incorrect time for when the aircraft is expected to enter their airspace. We decided to upgrade to SADIS 2nd generation because this system uses more state-to-the-art technology offering higher speeds - and thus more timely data reception - and higher reliability."

Two of the other initial users are the ATCs for Romania and Syria. "The Syrians didn't have SADIS at all, so they were keen to take the latest technology immediately," said Erick Nuwendam, pre-sale adviser for Corobor, the Paris-based company responsible for installing SADIS 2G for ATCs. "The Romanians are upgrading from SADIS 1G and they feel it is really helping their network. They want to be compatible with ICAO as soon as possible.

"The main benefits they cite are that it is just easier to set up and use, more transparent and more efficient to use. It's an off-the-shelf unit and it's less expensive. In a sense the ATC users won't notice any difference from before, except that there won't be any disruption. It's more reliable. With the original SADIS there was the risk of outages from the X.25 protocol. The fact that this is not a risk simplifies the jobs for the engineers and the staff at ATCs as they are in control of their environment."

RE: Intelsat 904 (60.0E)
Intelsat Wins Contract With The African Virtual University To Provide Internet Bandwidth Services

PEMBROKE, Bermuda, September 23, 2005 -- Intelsat has been selected by the African Virtual University (AVU) as its strategic communications partner in an initiative to establish a higher education bandwidth consortium which will make Internet bandwidth more widely accessible to African universities. Using Intelsat's GlobalConnex(SM) Internet Trunking Service, this initiative will deliver cost-effective, reliable bandwidth to students, academics, and other users at 11 universities and two consortia in six African countries, initially.

The Partnership for Higher Education in Africa (PHEA), a body consisting of the Carnegie Corporation of New York, The Ford Foundation, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, The Rockefeller Foundation, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, have pooled their resources to fund universities in Africa. By leveraging economies of scale to achieve cost efficiencies and satisfy demand for Internet bandwidth services, the PHEA funding is channeled through the AVU, which selected Intelsat to provide the needed bandwidth.

Intelsat's network for the service consists of its teleport in Germany and the IS-903 and IS-904 satellites, both of which provide strong coverage of the region. The AVU, an international university based in Nairobi, Kenya affiliated with 56 learning centers and institutions in 27 countries in Africa, will provide some of its own content and source additional educational content from universities in the U.S., Australia and Europe. The partnership between the AVU, PHEA and Intelsat is geared toward achieving the AVU vision and mission of increasing access to tertiary educationacross the continent.

The AVU was established in 1997 as a World Bank project to assist sub-Saharan African countries in enhancing capacity availability to African universities through technical and administrative support and channeling brokered content. The AVU recognizes that lack of connectivity is a serious drawback for most of its partner institutions, which hampers the delivery of Open Distance and e-Learning programs, as well as access to digital resources. The AVU was identified by the PHEA as the ideal institution to manage the complex project based on its proven skills in purchasing and managing satellite-based distance education across its own centers in Africa.

Mamman Aminu Ibrahim, convener of the Nigeria Information and Communications TechnologyForum of Partnership Institutions, said, "When African universities have the capacity to connect with the Internet at speeds approaching those available to others around the world, we will have taken one of the most important steps possible in our efforts to become a full member of the world's academic community. This is technology that is central to the transformation of higher education in Africa."

The Rector of the AVU, Kuzvinetsa Peter Dzvimbo, stated, "Most of the universities in Africa do not have access to reliable and affordable bandwidth, with some making do with less than one megabit per second. We are now in the process of publicizing this partnership so that more African universities can join the consortium or even form regional consortia for bandwidth and connectivity."

Derek Pierson, CFO, African Virtual University, added, "Intelsat is a strong, reliable partner that has a proven track record of successfully designing, implementing and operating long distance networks for education, telemedicine and disaster recovery in many countries around the world. Relying on Intelsat for this service gives African university students access to reliable, fast and continuous Internet connections, thereby opening doors for them personally, and providing long-lived value to the countries in which they live and work."

"One of the main reasons Intelsat was created over 40 years ago was to ensure that people around the world would have access to communications technology that would foster the spread of knowledge and encourage development," said Dave McGlade, CEO, Intelsat, Ltd. "It is fitting that Intelsat provides this service to African students, since making communications accessible is still a large part of our corporate mission. We are proud that GlobalConnex(SM), the latest in our efforts to make communications services reliable and affordable, will be used to deliver educational information that will build and shape the lives of the thousands of students who access it."

Pactel Deploys A New HUB To Support Growing Needs In The Indian Ocean Region

Fri, May 4th, 2012 -- Pactel International has deployed a new Perth hub to support growing demands for services in the Indian Ocean Region. The new carrier-grade platform runs on the Intelsat IS-904 satellite to provide extended coverage into the African and Middle-Eastern regions.

Through the new Perth-based hub, Pactel International can offer its customers large-scale links into a region which is experiencing very high demand for satellite communications. Initially, Pactel will provide deployment services into the Middle East, with plans to expand into the African market.

The platform is based on Newtec's DVB-S2 hub technology. The Newtec EL501 IP Satellite Hub combines new modulation techniques with IP shaping and satellite segment bandwidth management for DVB-S2 star networks. The Hub incorporates the proven FlexACM technology which fully automatically optimises the satellite link. The hub can be combined with other Newtec technologies for e.g. traffic acceleration, Clean Channel Technology and Bandwidth Cancellation for further bandwidth optimisation.

Richard Walshe, Newtec's BDM for Nth Asia/Pacific says, "I want to thank Pactel for their on-going support. It is very rewarding, both personally and professionally, to be involved with such an energetic and innovative team as they continue to expand their network. Newtec's purpose is to provide our customers with the best and latest technological solutions in order to realise their business objectives (such as reduced opex, expanding market reach and happy customers) I think our latest deal covers all this very well".

"At Pactel international, it is our corporate mission to expand and evolve together with our customers and suppliers. By deploying this new revolutionary platform, we are able to further optimize bandwidth and pass the savings onto our customers, whilst still maintaining the highest quality in a market where demand for bandwidth is high", said Andrew Taylor, CEO Pactel international.
