Successful launch for Nilesat
By Robert Briel
Published: August 5, 2010 08.28 Europe/London

The third Ariane 5 mission in 2010 successfully launched a pair of Thales Alenia Space-produced satellites: Nilesat 201 and Rascom-QAF1R on Wednesday, August 4.

Nilesat 201 will be utilised by Egyptian satellite operator Nilesat to deliver digital Direct-to-Home TV and
radio broadcasting along with high-speed data transmission services to North Africa and the Middle East.

Rascom-QAF1R will ensure service continuity for its operator, RascomStar-QAF, providing African access to advanced communications and information technologies in particular rural telephony.

This was the 38th consecutive launch success for Ariane 5, said Arianespace chairman & CEO Jean-Yves Le Gall in comments after the flight in a statement. Since the start of 2010, we already have launched six large
telecommunications satellites which, I want to underscore is more than all our competitors combined.

Le Gall also detailed the companys two new launch contracts: GSAT 10 for the Indian Space Research Organization and Intelsat-20 for Intelsat.
