June for new Measat-3a launch

01-03-2009




measat3aMeasat will try again to launch its Measat-3a satellite, with a new date set for June 2009. Originally scheduled in August 2008, the launch had to be postponed after the satellite was damaged by an overhead crane while being prepared for launch at Baikonur.


The satellite has been returned to the Orbital Sciences facility in Dulles, USA, after the completion of a complex defueling and decontamination process, Measat said. Now undergoing final repairs, 3a is still contracted with Intelsat to be launched from a Land-Launch Zenit-3SLB vehicle.

Dr Ali Ebadi, Measats senior v-p of space systems development, said: We have been working closely with Orbital Sciences on the repairs of the satellite. We are happy with the progress, and we look forward to seeing the satellite return to the launch site for a June 2009 launch.
