Special delivery: payloads arrive for Arianespace's fifth Soyuz mission carrying O3b satellites


The latest batch of O3b satellites for launch by Arianespace are unloaded from a chartered IL-76 cargo aircraft at French Guiana's Félix Eboué Airport. They will be orbited by a medium-lift Soyuz on Flight VS22.

French Guiana has welcomed the four passengers for Arianespace's second Soyuz mission in 2019, which will further expand the SES-owned O3b satellite constellation delivering low-latency, fiber-like connectivity to customers in more than 40 countries.

This spacecraft quartet - built by Thales Alenia Space - arrived this week aboard a chartered cargo jetliner that landed at Félix Eboué Airport near the capital city of Cayenne, enabling them to be transferred by road to the Spaceport's preparation facilities.

The O3b fleet of Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) satellites is a proven non-geostationary constellation that provides commercial broadband services today, delivering carrier-grade services. The first 16 spacecraft for O3b were successfully orbited by four Soyuz vehicles operating from the Guiana Space Center in 2013, 2014 and 2018. Each satellite weighs about 700 kg. at launch and provides more than 10 Gbps of capacity.

"From 16 to 20" with Arianespace Flight VS22
 Скрытый текст:
By increasing the size of the O3b constellation from 16 to 20 satellites, SES Networks will offer enhanced coverage while providing greater service availability and reliability - responding to increasing demand for bandwidth from governments, as well as the telecom, cloud, maritime and energy markets.

This upcoming Soyuz mission is designated Flight VS22 in Arianespace's launcher family numbering system, signifying the medium-lift workhorse's 22nd liftoff from the Spaceport since its 2011 introduction at French Guiana.

4 LATEST O3B SATELLITES ARRIVE AT LAUNCH BASE
02/07/2019

February 7, 2019 - The four latest O3b satellites arrived at the Guiana Space Center in French Guiana on February 2, after being shipped from Thales Alenia Space's facility in Rome. Built by Thales Alenia Space as prime contractor for SES, these communications satellites will be launched by a Soyuz rocket in March 2019, joining the current constellation of 16 satellites. The O3b system has been operational in orbit since 2014.

With the four latest satellites up and running in medium Earth orbit (MEO), the O3b constellation will offer greater capacity, better coverage and more efficient operation, along with higher reliability. SES Networks, SES' provider of global managed data services, will call on these high-performance satellites to offer communications services to telecommunications, maritime, aeronautical, and energy markets, as well as governments and institutions across the world.

These Ka-band satellites are positioned at an altitude of 8,000 kilometers along the equator, providing low-latency, fibre-like connectivity.

As prime contractor for a total of 125 satellites in three constellations, Globalstar 2 (24), O3b (20) and Iridium® NEXT (81), Thales Alenia Space is clearly the benchmark partner in the development and deployment of low and medium orbit telecom satellite constellations.

МОСКВА, 27 фев - РИА Новости. Запуск четырех британских спутников связи O3b с помощью ракеты-носителя "Союз-СТ-Б" с разгонным блоком "Фрегат-МТ" с космодрома Куру, планировавшийся на 26 марта, отложен на три дня, сообщил РИА Новости источник в ракетно-космической отрасли.

Ранее другой источник в отрасли говорил РИА Новости, что старт намечается на 26 марта.
Цитата"В связи с переносом запуска первых шести британских спутников связи OneWeb с 20 на 28 февраля отложен и старт четырех британских космических аппаратов O3b с 26 на 29 марта", - сказал собеседник агентства.
 Скрытый текст:
Запуск шести спутников OneWeb планировался на 20 февраля, но был перенесен на 27 февраля из-за того что в конце января при подготовке на космодроме Куру на магистрали подачи гелия в разгонном блоке "Фрегат" была обнаружена трещина, которую позже заварили прибывшие из России специалисты. Затем старт был отложен на 28 февраля вследствие нештатного поведения третьей ступени ракеты "Союз-2.1б" при запуске египетского спутника EgyptSat-A 21 февраля.

В 2013-2018 годах с помощью четырех ракет "Союз-СТ" с космодрома Куру на орбиту были выведены 16 британских спутников связи O3b, предназначенных для недорогого высокоскоростного доступа в интернет. Они были построены европейской компанией Thales Alenia Space по заказу британской компании O3b Networks -- 100% "дочки" европейского спутникового оператора SES.

В июне 2015 года Роскосмос подписал контракт с Arianespace и британской OneWeb на 21 коммерческий запуск 672 спутников на ракетах-носителях "Союз" с разгонными блоками "Фрегат" с космодромов Куру, Байконур и Восточный. OneWeb планирует создать группировку спутников, которая позволит обеспечить широкополосный доступ в интернет для пользователей по всему миру благодаря полному охвату поверхности Земли.

Arianespace reaches key preparation milestones for the next two flights on its 2019 manifest

The Spaceport is busy with activity as preparations advance for the next Vega and Soyuz missions - which will mark Arianespace's third and fourth flights of 2019, respectively, as the company builds upon its two launch successes performed earlier this year.

 Скрытый текст:

Encapsulated in its protective payload fairing, PRISMA is positioned atop Vega during activity at the Spaceport's SLV launch complex.

First in line is the Vega launch, designated Flight VV14 in Arianespace's numbering system, which will deliver the PRISMA (PRecursore IperSpettrale della Missione Applicativa) Earth observation satellite to Sun-synchronous orbit on a mission targeted for March 21.

The launcher has completed its build-up at the Spaceport, allowing final checkout to begin. This assembly process concluded with integration of Vega's "upper composite," consisting of PRISMA and its protective payload fairing. Installation took place at the Spaceport's SLV launch site, inside the facility's protective mobile gantry.

PRISMA: An Earth observation mission for Italy
PRISMA - was built for the ASI Italian space agency by OHB ITALIA as prime contractor, with LEONARDO responsible for the payload. Once operational, it will provide major applications to protect both our planet and Italy's national environmental safety.

Fitted with a state-of-the-art electro-optical instrument, made by a medium resolution photo camera sensitive to all the visible range (panchromatic) and by an innovative hyperspectral sensor, it will employ these capabilities for environmental monitoring, resources management, identification and classification of crops, fight against pollution, etc.

PRISMA will be the third satellite launched at the service of ASI by Arianespace, whose backlog comprises two other spacecraft for the Italian space agency.

The PRISMA satellite was designed and manufactured by a consortium of Italian companies led by OHB ITALIA which provided a dedicated platform hosting the payload supplied by LEONARDO.
Expanding the O3b satellite constellation
As key progress is made for Flight VV14, payload integration is underway for Arianespace's second Soyuz mission of 2019 - Flight VS22 - which will further expand the SES-owned O3b satellite constellation delivering low-latency, fiber-like connectivity to customers in more than 40 countries.


The second of four O3b satellites to be orbited on Arianespace's upcoming Soyuz mission is integrated on the dispenser system during activity in the Spaceport's S5 payload preparation building.

This integration involves a step-by-step installation of the spacecraft on a tube-shaped dispenser system, with the activity taking place inside the Spaceport's S5 payload preparation facility.

The O3b fleet of medium-Earth orbit (MEO) satellites is a proven non-geostationary constellation that provides commercial broadband services today, delivering carrier-grade services. The first 16 spacecraft for O3b were successfully orbited by four Soyuz vehicles operating from French Guiana in 2013, 2014 and 2018. Each satellite - built by Thales Alenia Space - weighs about 700 kg. at launch and provides more than 10 Gbps of capacity.

By increasing the size of the O3b constellation from 16 to 20 satellites, SES Networks will offer enhanced coverage while providing greater service availability and reliability - responding to increasing demand for bandwidth from governments, as well as the telecom, cloud, maritime and energy markets.

Continuing the 2019 launch cadence
Arianespace has a busy launch schedule in 2019, targeting up to 12 missions from the Spaceport using its heavyweight Ariane 5, medium-lift Soyuz and lightweight Vega.

The company kicked off its launch calendar with the Ariane 5 flight that orbited Saudi Geostationary Satellite 1/Hellas Sat 4 and GSAT-31 on February 5; which was followed by the history-making first launch of OneWeb satellites, performed February 27 by Soyuz.

Arianespace Flight VS22: A fifth launch for the operator SES and its O3b constellation



For its fourth mission of 2019 -- and the second this year with the Soyuz medium launcher from the Guiana Space Center (CSG) in French Guiana, Arianespace will be launching four more O3b satellites for SES.

By performing the 22nd Soyuz flight from the CSG, Arianespace is supporting -- for the fifth time -- SES in the expansion of its successful Non-Geostationary Satellite Orbit (NGSO) satellite constellation.

Operational since 2014, the O3b medium Earth orbit (MEO) satellite constellation delivers fiber-equivalent connectivity, and is part of SES's bold vision of connecting people and empowering them with opportunities.

Flight VS22 will be performed from the Soyuz Launch Complex (ELS) in Sinnamary, French Guiana.

The Launch Readiness Review (LRR) will take place on Wednesday, April 3, 2019 in Kourou to authorize the start of operations for the final countdown.

The O3b satellites lofted by Arianespace on Flight VS22 are the 58th, 59th, 60th and 61th satellites to be launched by Arianespace for the global satellite operator SES.

SES is the world-leading satellite-enabled service operator and is the first to deliver a differentiated and scalable GEO-MEO offering worldwide, with more than 50 satellites in Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) and 16 in Medium Earth Orbit (MEO).

SES provides a diverse range of customers with global video distribution and data connectivity services through two business units: SES Video and SES Networks which the portfolio includes O3b, the only non-geostationary system delivering fiber-like broadband services today.

The four new Ka-band satellites will join SES's existing constellation of O3b MEO satellites, orbiting at approximately 8,000 km. from Earth and serving customers based in almost 50 countries.

They will improve connectivity capabilities, increase performance, and serve to seamlessly scale the existing O3b constellation.

The four O3b satellites will be the 156th to 159th satellites manufactured by Thales Alenia Space and its predecessors to be orbited by Arianespace.
