Both satellites for Arianespace's year-opening Ariane 5 launch are now in French Guiana


The GSAT-31 passenger for Arianespace Flight VA247 is unloaded from an Antonov An-124 cargo jetliner after arriving in French Guiana (photo at left). A similar process occurred several days earlier with the touchdown of its co-passenger for the upcoming Ariane 5 mission, Saudi Geostationary Satellite 1/Hellas Sat 4 (photo, right).

Building on Arianespace's operational success in 2018, payload preparations for the company's first flight in the new year are moving ahead with this week's delivery of the mission's second satellite, GSAT-31, to French Guiana - joining the Saudi Geostationary Satellite 1/Hellas Sat 4 (HS-4/SGS-1), which arrived earlier in January.

This newly-delivered passenger for Ariane 5 was flown to South America aboard an Antonov An-124 cargo jetliner, which landed at Félix Eboué Airport near the French Guiana capital city of Cayenne. After the unloading process, the protective container with GSAT-31 was readied for transportation by road to the Spaceport to begin payload processing. Its HS-4/SGS-1 co-passenger for the upcoming Ariane 5 mission underwent these same procedures following its own delivery on January 4.

Designated Flight VA247 in Arianespace's numbering system, the year-opening Ariane 5 flight will lift off on February 5 - kicking off a fast-paced operational schedule that will include up to 12 missions using the company's launcher family, with the heavy-lift Ariane 5 joined by the medium Soyuz and lightweight Vega.
 Скрытый текст:
Arianespace's 2019 mission activity initiated by Flight VA247 will build on the company's 11 launches last year, which placed nearly 57 metric tons into orbit for 13 different customers. In parallel, Arianespace will continue preparation activity during 2019 for the introduction of its next-generation launch vehicles: Vega C and Ariane 6.

ЦитатаAriane 5 | January 29, 2019
For its first mission of 2019, Arianespace to launch two telecommunications satellites with Ariane 5



For its first launch of 2019, Arianespace will orbit two telecommunications satellites using an Ariane 5 from the Guiana Space Center: Saudi Geostationary Satellite 1/Hellas Sat 4, a condosat for KACST and Hellas Sat; along with GSAT-31 for the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO).

Through this 103rd Ariane 5 mission - the 70th with an Ariane 5 ECA version - Arianespace confirms its leadership in the geostationary launch services market segment. Flight VA247 will be performed from Ariane Launch Complex No. 3 (ELA 3) in Kourou, French Guiana.

The Launch Readiness Review (LRR) will take place on Monday, February 4, 2019 in Kourou to authorize the start of operations for the final countdown.

Composed of two payloads, Saudi Geostationary Satellite 1/Hellas Sat 4 also called HS-4/SGS-1, is a geostationary condosat for KACST (King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology- Saudi Arabia) and Hellas Sat (Greece - Cyprus) which aims at providing telecommunications services in the Middle East, South Africa and Europe.

The Saudi Geostationary Satellite 1 communications payload will provide advanced Ka-band spot beam communications services for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's KACST, including secure communications for the Gulf Cooperative Council region.

The Hellas Sat 4 communications payload, on the other hand, will offer advanced Ku-band regional beam communications services for Arabsat's subsidiary Hellas Sat, a Greek-Cypriot satellite operator which provides services to leading Direct-to-Home (DTH) operators by delivering contents to more than three million households.

The HS-4/SGS-1 satellite was designed, assembled and integrated by the U.S. manufacturer Lockheed Martin Space.

GSAT-31 is a telecommunications satellite designed and manufactured by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) which will provide communications services in Ku-band for at least 15 years.

GSAT-31 will essentially help bridge the digital divide in the Indian subcontinent as part of an ambitious Indian space program, whose objectives are to develop India while pursuing science research and planetary exploration.

To watch a live, high-speed online transmission of the launch (including commentary in French and English from the launch site), go to arianespace.com or to youtube.com/arianespace on February 5, 2018, beginning 20 minutes before liftoff.

ЦитатаAriane 5 | January 31, 2019
Payload integration is complete for Arianespace's year-opening Ariane 5 flight

The Ariane 5 for Arianespace's upcoming mission from the Spaceport in French Guiana is now fully-assembled following integration of its two passengers: Saudi Geostationary Satellite 1/Hellas Sat 4 (HS-4/SGS-1) and GSAT-31 - both of which will be delivered to geostationary orbit on a flight scheduled for February 5.


The Ariane 5 payload fairing containing Flight VA247's HS-4/SGS-1 satellite passenger is readied to be lowered over the GSAT-31 spacecraft - which previously was installed atop Ariane 5's central core.

Encapsulated in an ogive-shaped protective fairing, HS-4/SGS-1 has been positioned atop its GSAT-31 co-passenger - which was installed on the launcher's cryogenic core stage during previous activity inside the Spaceport's Final Assembly Building for Ariane 5.

These successive integration steps enable a new series of preparation milestones to begin. They include the tomorrow's launch readiness review, which will be followed by Ariane 5's February 4 rollout to the ELA-3 launch zone.

Liftoff is scheduled during a 61-min. launch window that opens February 5 at 6:01 p.m. local time in French Guiana, with the two spacecraft to be deployed on a flight lasting 42 minutes. Ariane 5 will deliver a total payload lift performance of more than 10,050 kg. during the mission.

Next week's launch is designated Flight VA247, marking the 247th using an Ariane family vehicle since this European series of launchers entered service in 1979. It kicks off another busy year of activity for Arianespace, which has the objective of performing as many as 12 missions during 2019 with its full launcher family - consisting of the heavy-lift Ariane 5, medium-lift Soyuz and lightweight Vega.

Saudi Geostationary Satellite 1/Hellas Sat 4 - to be deployed from Ariane 5's upper payload slot - is a geostationary "condosat" for Saudi Arabia's King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology (KACST) and Greek-Cypriot satellite operator Hellas Sat. It was designed, assembled and integrated by Lockheed Martin Space, with a coverage area that includes Europe, South Africa and the Middle East.


India's GSAT-31 satellite is shown after its integration on the Ariane 5 launcher for Flight VA247 during preparation activity in the Spaceport's Final Assembly Building.

The Saudi Geostationary Satellite 1 communications payload will provide advanced Ka-band spot beam communications services for KACST, a government organization responsible for promoting science and technology in Saudi Arabia. The Hellas Sat 4 communications payload will deliver advanced Ku-band regional beam communications services for the Arabsat subsidiary.

Riding in Ariane 5's lower payload position, GSAT-31 - which was designed and manufactured by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) - will provide Ku-band communications services from geostationary orbit, helping "bridge the digital divide" with coverage across the Indian subcontinent.
