Intelsat Purchases Three Satellites -- Two VIII-Series And One Additional VII-A Spacecraft; Also Calls For Accelerated Delivery Of Previously Ordered VII-As

WASHINGTON, September 15, 1992 -- The INTELSAT board of governors has authorized the purchase of three satellites, the first two being the initial order of the new INTELSAT VIII-series (801 and 802) from GE Astro Space. The third is an additional VII-A spacecraft (INTELSAT 708) from Space Systems/Loral. The board also approved accelerated delivery of two previously ordered VII-As.

The initial contract for two GE Astro Space INTELSAT VIII satellites is valued at nearly US$165 million, with delivery dates of September 1995 and January 1996. Procurement of additional satellites in this series will be addressed by the board during 1993 in time to ensure production line continuity.

The amendment to the Space Systems/Loral contract for the additional VII-A is valued at nearly US$140 million, with a delivery date of March 1995. The first two VII-A spacecraft were ordered in December 1990 and will now be delivered in July and November 1994.

The contract amendment for accelerated delivery of the INTELSAT 706 and 707 satellites provides for the establishment of parallel assembly, integration and test facilities at the Aerospatiale plant located in Cannes, France, to complement the Space Systems/Loral facilities located in Palo Alto, Calif.

The decision to procure three satellites at this time is based on the most recent demand forecast and capacity analysis, which establish clear requirements for additional satellites to meet INTELSAT customer needs for satellite capacity.

The INTELSAT VIII satellites are designed to meet the needs of INTELSAT users in the Pacific Ocean region for improved C-band coverage and service. These satellites will incorporate six-fold C-band frequency reuse, two-fold frequency reuse of expanded C-band capacity, and the highest C-band power level ever for an INTELSAT satellite.

The new spacecraft will provide significantly more C-band capacity for public switched telephony and INTELSAT Business Service, better quality for video services, and encourage new international VSAT applications.

The superior C-band payload of the new spacecraft, in combination with the high Ku-band capacity of the INTELSAT VII/VII-A series, will give INTELSAT customers significant flexibility in designing networks to meet global user demands throughout the 1990s.

With headquarters in Washington, INTELSAT is the international, commercial cooperative of 124 member nations that owns and operates the global communications satellite system used worldwide by 180 member and non-member countries, territories and dependencies for their international and, in many instances, domestic communications.

The major provider of transoceanic telephone and television services, INTELSAT also offers via its 19-satellite global system such services as international video, teleconferencing, facsimile, data and telex.

Arianespace At The Service Of Intelsat

WASHINGTON, March 14, 1996 -- On Thursday, March 14, 1996, Arianespace successfully launched the Intelsat 707 satellite for the International Telecommunications Satellite Organization, Intelsat, making its 14th launch in 12 months.

The launch from the Guiana Space Center in Kourou, French Guiana, was carried out by an ARIANE 44LP, the version of the European launcher equipped with two liquid and two solid-propellant strap-on boosters. Liftoff took place on Thursday, March 14th, at:

4:11 a.m. local time in Kourou;
or 2:11 a.m. in Washington, D.C. (E.S.T.);
or 7:11 a.m. Universal Time;
or 8:11 a.m. in Paris.

Commenting on this third successful launch of the year, Arianespace Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Chief Operating Officer (COO)

The officer of a firm responsible for day-to-day management, usually the president or an executive vice-president. Francis AVANZI said, "With the launch this evening, our thoughts go to our customer, Intelsat, which was anxiously waiting for its 24th satellite to be placed into orbit. Thanks to this launch, they will be able to ensure service continuity for their customers. We are proud to be able to provide a satisfactory response to the confidence and loyalty that this major international organization has placed in us for more than 16 years."

Provisional parameters at third stage injection into transfer orbit were:

- Perigee: 199.7 km for a target of 199.9 km (+ 3 km),
- Apogee: 35,913 km for a target of 35,940 km (+ 150 km),

Inclination: 7.04 degrees for a target of 7.00 degrees (+ 0.05 degrees).

Intelsat 707 is the seventh new-generation satellite built by Space Systems/Loral of Palo Alto, California for Intelsat. Weighing 4,175 kg (9,185 lb.) at liftoff, it is equipped with 26 C-band transponders and 14 Ku-band transponders. Its capacity has been increased from 22,500 to 112,500 telephone lines, thanks to the use of a digital line- multiplication system. Intelsat 7O7 will be positioned over the Atlantic Ocean to provide transatlantic links.

The next launch, Flight 85, is targeted for April 19, 1996. An ARIANE 42P launch vehicle will be used to place into geostationary transfer orbit A geostationary transfer orbit (GTO) is a Hohmann transfer orbit around the Earth between a low Earth orbit (LEO) and a geostationary orbit (GEO). It is an ellipse where the perigee is a point on a LEO and the apogee has the same distance from the Earth as the GEO. the M-SAT 1 mobile telecommunications satellite for Telesat Mobile Inc. of Canada.

Following Flight 84, Arianespace has 38 satellites on order to be launched.

Arianespace, an industrial and commercial company, is the world leader in the provision of commercial space transportation services. Arianespace also markets and sells Ariane launch services and provides launch operations from the Guiana Space Center in French Guiana. Arianespace Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Arianespace, is responsible for marketing launch services in the United States; a liaison office in Tokyo assures an Arianespace presence in Japan and in the Pacific region.
