Overview

Destination: Geostationary Orbit
Mission: Communications

Geostationary Orbit Launch Complex 36A Cape Canaveral, FL, USA

These all C-band satellites with 24 active transponders, provide distribution of cable, broadcast television and radio, telecommunications services, business television and broadband data distribution throughout North America, the Caribbean, Latin America, Europe and Asia.

Atlas IIAS

Family: Atlas
Configuration: IIAS

Atlas II was a member of the Atlas family of launch vehicles, which evolved from the successful Atlas missile program of the 1950s. It was designed to launch payloads into low earth orbit, geosynchronous transfer orbit or geosynchronous orbit. Sixty-three launches of the Atlas II, IIA and IIAS models were carried out between 1991 and 2004; all sixty-three launches were successes, making the Atlas II the most reliable launch system in history.
