    Intelsat 14 launch successful


    Intelsat, the world’s leading provider of fixed satellite services, has announced that an Atlas V rocket provided by United Launch Alliance successfully launched the Intelsat 14 satellite (IS-14).

    The satellite, built by Space Systems/Loral, will provide high-powered data services through its C- and Ku-band payload to Intelsat customers throughout Latin America, Europe and Africa. Once IS-14 is operational, it will replace Intelsat’s 1R satellite at 315º E, providing customers with capacity that has a useful life slated to last the next 16 years.

    The long-delayed launch of Intelsat-14 was successfully made from Florida on Nov 23.

    A Lockheed Martin Atlas V rocket was responsible for the launch. The satellite, built by Space Systems/Loral, will go to 315 deg East (45 deg W) in an Atlantic Ocean position where it will replace Intelsat 1-R.

    "IS-14 kicks off our 11-satellite investment campaign, the largest in our company's history. This satellite provides capacity for our growing network services and government customers," said Dave McGlade, Intelsat CEO. "Our customers use our infrastructure as an essential component to deliver in-demand services that include cellular backhaul to enable wireless communications in remote regions, broadband networks for enterprise and oil and gas applications, and IP trunking services for Internet connectivity."
