A European-built communications satellite, manufactured in secret for the Egyptian government, joined a European Space Agency exoplanet observatory aboard a Ukrainian Antonov An-124 cargo plane for a trans-Atlantic flight Wednesday to begin final launch preparations in French Guiana.

The TIBA 1 communications satellite and ESA's Characterizing Exoplanet Satellite, or CHEOPS, were loaded into the Antonov cargo plane at Toulouse-Blagnac airport in France, near an Airbus spacecraft factory.

The heavy-duty aircraft transported the satellites -- both inside climate-controlled shipping containers -- on a trans-Atlantic journey to the airport in Cayenne, French Guiana, where they landed Wednesday afternoon. The two spacecraft were expected to travel by truck to the nearby Guiana Space Center in Kourou, where technicians will remove the satellites from their containers and prepare them for launch.

The TIBA 1 spacecraft will launch in tandem with an Inmarsat mobile communications satellite on an Ariane 5 rocket set for liftoff Nov. 22. CHEOPS will launch as a secondary payload on the Dec. 17 launch of a Russian Soyuz booster with Italy's first COSMO-SkyMed Second Generation, or CSG 1, radar surveillance satellite.

Egypt ordered the TIBA 1 communications satellite in 2016 as part of a purchase of French military equipment reportedly worth more than $1 billion. French officials released no updates on the Egyptian satellite since 2016, and its name and assignment to the November Ariane 5 launch remained secret until Wednesday.

Airbus Defense and Space and Thales Alenia Space, rivals in the satellite manufacturing industry, collaborated on the TIBA 1 project. In a statement, Airbus said it supplied the Eurostar E3000 satellite platform, assembled the spacecraft, and tested the satellite.

Airbus described Thales Alenia Space as the "leading partner" on the mission. Thales Alenia Space designed and built the spacecraft's payload, Airbus said, featuring a dual-mission Ka-band package for secure and broadband communications.

TIBA 1 is designed for mission in geostationary orbit lasting more than 15 years, and will weigh around 5.6 metric tons -- or 12,345 pounds -- fully fueled for launch, Airbus said.

The Ariane 5 launch set for Nov. 22 will be the 250th flight of the Ariane rocket family since 1979.

Payloads for Arianespace's next two launches are welcomed in French Guiana


The shipping container with the TIBA-1 payload is unloaded fr om a chartered An-124 cargo jetliner at French Guiana's Félix Eboué Airport. This spacecraft will be orbited by an Ariane 5 on Arianespace Flight VA250.

The Spaceport is stepping up activity for Arianespace's upcoming Ariane 5 and Soyuz missions following the delivery of three satellite passengers to French Guiana - which arrived at Cayenne's Félix Eboué Airport earlier this week aboard the same chartered cargo jetliner.

The three spacecraft - TIBA-1, CHEOPS and ANGELS - subsequently were unloaded from the An-124 aircraft for transfer by road to the Spaceport launch base, wh ere each will be prepared for liftoff before the end of 2019.

Launching Ariane 5 for Egypt

TIBA-1 was jointly developed by Thales Alenia Space and Airbus for operation by the Government of Egypt. Based on the Eurostar E3000 satellite platform, it will be one of two passengers on Arianespace's fourth Ariane 5 mission of the year - which is designated Flight VA250 in the company's numbering system.

Designed for a service life greater than 15 years, TIBA-1 will have an estimated launch mass of 5,600 kg. and an electric power capability that is higher than 9 kW. Its liftoff aboard Arianespace's workhorse Ariane 5 will be performed from the Spaceport's ELA-3 launch zone in November.

...

Arianespace's upcoming Flights VA250 and VS23 will be the company's eighth and ninth launches of 2019, respectively.

ЦитатаAriane 5 | October 25, 2019
Egypt's TIBA-1 satellite is "fit" for its Arianespace Ariane 5 launch

Processing is now underway with the TIBA-1 satellite passenger for Arianespace's next dual-payload Ariane 5 mission, which is scheduled for a November liftoff from the Spaceport in French Guiana.


TIBA-1 undergoes its fit-check with the interface adapter used for integration on Arianespace's Ariane 5 launcher.

Preparations so far have included TIBA-1's fit-check - an initial milestone validating the satellite's compatibility with the adapter that will serve as the payload interface with Ariane 5 - which was performed in the Spaceport's S5 payload preparation facility's S5C large clean room hall.

TIBA-1 will occupy the upper passenger position in Ariane 5's dual-payload configuration on the upcoming mission, which is designated Flight VA250 in Arianespace's numbering system. Its co-passenger - Inmarsat's fifth Global Xpress satellite, GX5 - is scheduled to arrive at the Spaceport this week.

Enhancing Egyptian communications

Based on the Eurostar E3000 satellite platform, TIBA-1 was developed by Airbus for operation by the government of Egypt and Thales Alenia Space. This communications spacecraft will weigh approximately 5,640 kg. at liftoff and was designed for a service life exceeding 15 years.

Flight VA250 will mark Arianespace's fourth mission in 2019 with a heavy-lift Ariane 5 and the eighth this year across its full family of launchers - which also includes the medium-lift Soyuz and lightweight Vega.

Inmarsat GX5 is prepared for Arianespace's next Ariane 5 launch fr om the Spaceport


Inmarsat GX5 is removed from its protective shipping container during activity inside the S5 payload preparation facility's S5C large clean room hall.

The fifth Global Xpress satellite - Inmarsat GX5 - is getting its first look inside the Spaceport's S5 payload preparation facility as pre-flight activity continues for Arianespace's Ariane 5 mission in November.

Inmarsat GX5 was removed from its protective shipping container after being delivered late last week from France - wh ere the spacecraft was produced by Thales Alenia Space - to French Guiana via cargo jetliner. The satellite subsequently was transferred by road to the Spaceport for payload processing.

The Inmarsat GX5 satellite is one of two passengers to be orbited on Arianespace's next Ariane 5 flight, joining TIBA-1 - a communications spacecraft for Egypt, developed by Thales Alenia Space and Airbus as co-prime contractors, with Thales Alenia Space acting as lead partner of the contract. TIBA-1 arrived at the Spaceport earlier this month and is advancing through its own pre-flight preparations.

Expanding the Global Xpress network

Inmarsat GX5 is a very high throughput communications satellite that will be fully integrated into Inmarsat's current Global Xpress high-speed network - with a coverage area that is to include the Middle East, Europe and the Indian sub-continent.

Based on Thales Alenia Space's upgraded Spacebus 4000 B2 platform, Inmarsat GX5 will deliver double the capacity of the entire existing Global Xpress fleet of satellites. It was designed for an operational lifetime of 16 years and will weigh approximately four metric tons at liftoff.

Arianespace's launch of TIBA-1 and Inmarsat GX5 - designated Flight VA250 - will be the fourth mission in 2019 with a heavy-lift Ariane 5 and the eighth this year across the company's family of launchers, which also includes the medium-lift Soyuz and lightweight Vega.

ЦитатаAriane 5 | November 15, 2019
Flight VA250: Arianespace will orbit TIBA-1 and Inmarsat GX5 with Ariane 5

On its fourth flight with Ariane 5 in 2019, Arianespace will orbit two telecommunications satellites at the service of long-term customers: TIBA-1 for Thales Alenia Space and Airbus Defence and Space, on behalf of the Government of Egypt; and the GX5 satellite for the operator Inmarsat.

Through this mission, Arianespace highlights its ability to be at the service of innovative satellite solutions for commercial and institutional needs.

VA250 will be the 250th launch of an Ariane rocket, which lifted off for the first time on December 24, 1979.

Flight VA250 will be performed from Ariane Launch Complex No. 3 (ELA 3) in Kourou, French Guiana.

The Launch Readiness Review (LRR) will take place on Wednesday, November 20, 2019 in Kourou to authorize the start of operations for the final countdown.

TIBA-1 is a civil and government telecommunication satellite for Egypt. It was developed by Thales Alenia Space and Airbus Defence and Space as co-prime contractors, with Thales Alenia Space acting as the consortium's lead partner. TIBA-1 will be owned and operated by the government of Egypt.

TIBA-1 will be the fourth satellite launched by Arianespace for Egypt. It will be deployed by Arianespace into geostationary transfer orbit (GTO), subsequently transitioning to its operational orbital slot position at 35.5° East.

Airbus Defence and Space is Arianespace's direct customer for this mission, continuing a fruitful cooperation between the two companies that extends back to Arianespace's creation in 1980.

GX5 is a mobile communications satellite built by Thales Alenia Space for Inmarsat. Inmarsat's fifth Ka-band Global Xpress (GX) satellite, GX5 will be the most advanced in the GX fleet, which in less than four years has become the gold standard for seamless, globally available, mobile broadband services.

Located in a geostationary orbit at 11° East, GX5 will deliver greater capacity than the entire existing GX fleet (GX1-GX4) combined and will support the rapid growth in customer demand for GX services in Europe and the Middle East, particularly for aviation passenger Wi-Fi and commercial maritime services.

This is the 10th time that Inmarsat has chosen Arianespace's launch services, demonstrating a well-established trust - with the two companies' relationship dating back to 1981.
