Arianespace Launches SES and Eutelsat Satellites

February 16, 2009


Arianespace has successfully launched Eutelsats Hot Bird 10 and SES New Skies NSS-9 satellites, Arianespace announced Feb. 12.
The mission also launched two microsatellites for the Spirale demonstration program.
Liftoff occurred on Feb. 12 at 7:09 p.m. local time in Kourou (5:09 pm in Washington, D.C). The mission was carried out by an Ariane 5 ECA launcher.

Hot Bird 10 is fitted with 64 high-power Ku-band transponders. A large satellite weighing 4,892 kg at liftoff, Hot Bird 10 was built by EADS Astrium and is identical to the Hot Bird 8 and 9 satellites. Prior to joining Eutelsats flagship Hot Bird position at 13 degrees East, the satellite will be located at 7 West in order to increase resources at this location for broadcasting in the Middle East.

Built by Orbital Sciences Corp. using a Star-2 platform, NSS-9 will weigh about 2,290 kg at launch. It is equipped with 44 active high-power transponders and has a design life of at least 15 years. From its orbital position at 183 West, it will offer seamless operational continuity to a variety of customers, including TV broadcasters, government users, operators and transport firms in the Pacific islands, as well as the maritime industry.
