ST-2 & Insat 4G to launch in May - 23-March-2011, 21:00

ST-2 & Insat 4G to launch in May
WASHINGTON - The ST-2 commercial telecommunications satellite built by Mitsubishi Electric Corp. (Melco) of Tokyo suffered no damage from the earthquake and tsunami that has devastated Japan and will be shipped to South America in time for its scheduled May launch, a Singapore Telecommunications Ltd. (SingTel) official said March 16.

Titus Yong, vice president and head of satellite programs at SingTel, said in an interview here at the Satellite 2011 conference that ST-2, which is owned by a joint venture of SingTel and Taiwans Chunghwa Telecom Co., will be shipped to Europes Guiana Space Center in French Guiana in about a week.

The 5,100-kilogram ST-2 represented the first non-Japanese customer for Melcos DS2000 satellite platform. More recently, Melco booked a two-satellite order from Turkey.

ST-2 is scheduled for launch in May, along with Indias 3,150-kilogram GSAT-8/Insat-4G telecommunications satellite, aboard an Ariane 5 rocket operated by Europes Arianespace launch consortium.
