Ariane 5 rolls out with the EchoStar XVII and MSG-3 satellites for Arianespace’s next launch

July 4, 2012 – Ariane Flight VA207

.

Arianespace has delivered another Ariane 5 to the launch zone at Europe’s Spaceport, positioning this heavy-lift vehicle for liftoff tomorrow with a mixed telecommunications and meteorological satellite payload.


This Ariane 5 today rolled out from the Spaceport’s Final Integration Building to the ELA-3 launch zone, where it is scheduled for liftoff during a time slot that opens at 6:36 p.m. and continues to 7:05 p.m. in French Guiana.

For the 63rd launch of an Ariane 5 – and the 207th mission of an Ariane family launcher overall – the payload lift performance is approximately 9,640 kg., which includes a combined total of more than 7,560 kg. for the EchoStar XVII and MSG-3 spacecraft, plus the launch vehicle’s dual-passenger dispenser system and satellite integration hardware.

The EchoStar XVII relay platform will be operated by Hughes Network Systems, and is based on Space Systems/Loral’s 1300-series satellite bus. It is designed to deliver broadband services to consumers, businesses and government customers across North America.

MSG-3 was produced by a Thales Alenia Space-led consortium for EUMETSAT (the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites). Once operational in geostationary orbit, it will provide detailed images of Europe, Africa and the North Atlantic for use by meteorologists and national weather forecasters.

Ariane 5 lofts telecommunications and weather observation satellites on Arianespace's latest mission success

July 5, 2012 – Ariane Flight VA207

.

Arianespace continued Ariane 5’s track record of success today by using the heavy-lift workhorse to orbit a mixed payload of telecommunications and meteorological spacecraft on the launcher’s 63rd flight from the Spaceport in French Guiana.

For this third Ariane 5 mission of 2012, the EchoStar XVII and MSG-3 passengers were deployed into geostationary transfer orbit during a 34-minute flight. Total payload lift performance was approximately 9,640 kg., which included the combined mass of the EchoStar XVII and MSG-3 spacecraft, plus the launch vehicle’s dual-passenger dispenser system and satellite integration hardware.


During its on-time liftoff today, Ariane 5 ascends from French Guiana at sunset with the EchoStar XVII and MSG-3 satellite payloads.

“By orbiting these two satellites, we have once again demonstrated the flexibility of Ariane 5 – which was capable of simultaneously launching one of the largest telecommunications satellites ever built for an American private operator, along with one of the most capable meteorological satellites developed for a European government organization,” said Arianespace Chairman & CEO Jean-Yves Le Gall.

Ariane 5’s accuracy was confirmed once again on today’s flight, with the following estimated orbital parameters at the cryogenic upper stage’s injection:
- Perigee: 249.4 km. for a target of 249.6 km.
- Apogee: 35,923 km. for a target of 35,942 km.
- Inclination: 6.00 deg. for a target of 6.00 deg.

With an estimated liftoff mass of 6,100 kg., EchoStar XVII will be operated by Hughes Network Systems from an orbital position of 107.1° West – delivering broadband services to consumers, businesses and government customers across North America. The telecommunications spacecraft is based on Space Systems/Loral’s 1300-series platform and is to operate in the Ka-band.

MSG-3 was the ninth Meteosat-series weather satellite launched by Ariane vehicles since 1981. Weighing approximately 2,000 kg. at liftoff, it will provide highly detailed imagery of Europe, the North Atlantic and Africa for use by meteorologists and national weather forecasters. Resulting from a close collaboration involving EUMETSAT (the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites) and the European Space Agency, MSG-3 was produced in an industry consortium led by Thales Alenia Space.

Following the flight’s liftoff at sunset and its subsequent satellite deployment, Le Gall took the opportunity to acknowledge the industrial and infrastructure teams that continue to support Arianespace in its commercial Ariane operations. He noted the Ariane 5 for this mission was fitted with the 1,200th engine produced for Ariane vehicles by the Safran group’s Snecma propulsion business unit.

“Thanks to all of you, Ariane 5 is a system that works…works very well…and will continue to work for a long time!” he added. “Following tonight’s launch, and with all of the contracts we’ve signed since the start of this year, our order book effectively covers no less than 22 firm Ariane 5 launches, which – at a pace of six to seven missions per year – guarantees us more than three years of activity.”

Arianespace’s next Ariane 5 mission is scheduled for August 2, carrying the Intelsat 20 satellite for Intelsat, along with HYLAS 2 for Avanti Communications.
