SES Inks Contract for Satellite

SES AMERICOM said it contracted Orbital Sciences for the construction of a third spacecraft under a multi-satellite contract both companies signed in May 2007.

Through the contract, the first and second satellites ordered were AMC-5R and a ground spare. That ground spare will now become AMC-1R, and a new ground spare will be produced for future use, SES said.

The AMC-1R satellite is set for launch in the second half of 2009 by Sea Launch.

AMC-1R was the ground spare originally ordered with AMC-5R. With 24 transponders in each frequency band (C and Ku), AMC-1R will initially operate at 101 degrees, and then move to a permanent home at 103 degrees.
