Ariane 5 ECA | Intelsat 39 & EDRS-C/HYLAS 3

Arianespace | FRA
Kourou, French Guiana
Aug. 6, 2019, 7:30 p.m.
Status: Success
Mission: Communications

EDRS-C is one of the two EDRS (European Data Relay System) satellites. EDRS is the European constellation of two geostationary data relay satellites that will relay information and data between satellites, spacecraft, unmanned aerial vehicles, and ground stations. Broadband communications payload called HYLAS 3 is placed on EDRS-C satellite, and is to complement HYLAS 1 and HYLAS 2 satellites already in orbit.

Ariane 5 ECA | Eutelsat 7C & AT&T T-16

Arianespace | FRA
Kourou, French Guiana
June 20, 2019, 9:43 p.m.
Status: Success
Mission: Communications

Eutelsat 7C is based on an all-electric propulsion version of the SSL-1300 satellite platform. Equipped with 44 operational Ku-band transponders, the new satellite will be copositioned with Eutelsat 7B, releasing Eutelsat 7A to another orbital location. This improved two-satellite constellation will enable Eutelsat to optimise resources across both satellites, with enhanced coverage flexibility and connectivity set to take the 7° East neighbourhood to a new level. By almost doubling capacity over Sub-Saharan Africa, from 22 to 42 transponders, it will also make room for several hundred additional digital channels to support the region’s fast expanding TV market. Eutelsat 7C will also be equipped with a beam providing enhanced capacity for government services over Europe, the Middle East and Central Asia, and a beam that can be steered to cover any region visible from 7° East. AT&T T-16 is based on Astrium’s Eurostar-3000 platform. The satellite has a payload comprising of high power transponders in Ku-band and transponders in Ka-band. It will operate from 100.85° West.
