ЦитатаEvry, May 19, 2010EADS Astrium selects Arianespace to launch the fourth satellite in the Skynet 5 constellation.Jean-Yves Le Gall, Arianespace Chairman and CEO, announced today the launch contract signing of the Skynet 5D satellite with Astrium. Arianespace had already been chosen by Astrium to launch the Skynet 5A, 5B and 5C satellites.Like the three previous spacecraft in the Skynet 5 family, Skynet 5D will be placed in geostationary transfer orbit by an Ariane 5 launcher from the Guiana Space Center in French Guiana. Launch is scheduled for the first half of 2013.Skynet 5D, secure broadband communications for armed forces Skynet 5D will be orbited by Arianespace for Astrium, which is contracted to deliver the satellite in orbit to the company Paradigm Secure Communications, a wholly owned subsidiary of Astrium.Astrium's Secure SatCom Systems is the prime system integrator and system design authority for Skynet 5 and Paradigm offers secure communications services to the British armed forces, NATO, other European countries, the USA and Australia.Built by Astrium using a Eurostar E-3000 LX platform, carrying powerful X-band transponders, Skynet 5D will weigh 4,800 kg. at launch. Previously, Arianespace orbited the Skynet 4B, 4C, 4E and 4F satellites for the British Ministry of Defence.Ariane 5 European defense missions Skynet 5D is the 35th military payload to have chosen an Ariane launch. This latest contract clearly illustrates the strategic facet of Ariane 5, which guarantees independent access to space for all European governments. The Ariane 5 launcher is one of the keys to the development of a common European security policy, since it plays a pivotal role in the indispensable space segment.Since the beginning of the year, Arianespace has signed 7 launch contracts for geostationary satellites and 5 dedicated Soyuz launches.

ЦитатаMon, 28 June, 2010Arianespace Lands Arsat-1 Launch ContractBy Warren Ferster WASHINGTON -- Arianespace will launch the Arsat-1 satellite for Argentine satellite operator Empresa Argentina de Soluciones Satelitales Sociedad Anonima, or Arsat, in mid-2012 under a contract announced June 28 by the Evry, France-based launch services provider. Arsat-1, expected to weigh 2,900 kilograms at launch, will be lofted from Europe's Guiana Space Center spaceport in French Guiana either as a co-passenger aboard a European Ariane 5 rocket or as the sole payload aboard a Russian-built Soyuz rocket. Financial terms of the contract were not disclosed. The satellite is under construction by Invap of Argentina, with Astrium and Thales Alenia Space, both of Europe, as major equipment suppliers, Arianespace said in a press release. It will be equipped with 24 Ku-band transponders of various types and provide services including telephone and television transmissions across Argentina, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay. "We are very pleased with our selection of Arianespace to launch the first geostationary satellite built in Argentina," Pablo Tognetti, chairman and chief executive of Arsat, said in a prepared statement. "Our selection is the result of an international bid, in which price, excellence in space transportation and mission success ratios were critical in our decision."
