The Ariane 5 for Arianespaces fifth heavy-lift mission of 2010 has moved to the Final Assembly Building at the Spaceport in French Guiana, where the dual-passenger payload of the Intelsat 17 and HYLAS 1
satellites are now ready to board.

The Ariane 5′s liftoff with Intelsat 17 and HYLAS 1 is set for November 25, and will be the 198th mission of an Ariane family launcher.

Once in orbit, Intelsat 17 will offer distribution in a region that extends across Asia and into Europe and Africa, operating from an orbital positioned of 66 degreas East effectively located next to Intelsats Asian
video distribution neighborhood positioned at 68.5 degrees East. The spacecraft was built by Space Systems/Loral, and carries C- and Ku-band capacity to provide multi-continental coverage. It is to replace the
Intelsat 702 satellite, which was launched by Arianespace in June 1994.

HYLAS 1 will bring high-speed broadband services to remote rural areas across Europe using a highly adaptable Ku- and Ka-band payload. Designed and built by EADS Astrium for satellite broadband operator Avanti
Communications, this spacecraft is designed to allocate varying amounts ofpower and bandwidth to the various regions within its footprint, reacting to the highs and lows of traffic demand.
