GSAT-8 is unloaded from the Antonov An-124 cargo jetliner at Cayenne’s Rochambeau International Airport in French Guiana.

April 4, 2011 – Ariane Flight VA202

A dual-purpose Indian satellite to be orbited on another of Arianespace’s Ariane 5 missions during 2011 arrived in French Guiana today.

GSAT-8 – which also is known by the INSAT-4G designation – was delivered to Rochambeau International Airport near the capital city of Cayenne, arriving aboard a chartered Antonov An-124 cargo jetliner.

This satellite is fitted with 18 Ku-band transponders for telecommunications duties, and also carries a navigation payload called GAGAN (GPS Aided Geo Augmented Navigation).

GSAT-8 will have a liftoff mass of 3,150 kg. and is designed for a mission life of 12 years. Operating with a payload power of 5,300 Watts, the satellite will be located at an orbital position of 55 deg. East longitude following its deployment by Ariane 5.

The GSAT-8 platform will be launched along with ST-2, a spacecraft for the ST-2 Satellite Ventures Pte Ltd. joint venture of Singapore Telecommunications Ltd (SingTel) and Chunghwa Telecom Company Ltd.
