Hispasat to launch satellite
Category: Alternative Telecom
Publishing Date: August 13, 2017
 

Hispasat’s Amazonas 5 satellite arrived on-site at International Launch Services’ (ILS) Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on Aug. 8 in preparation for mission integration and launch aboard an ILS Proton Breeze M launch vehicle in September. Hispasat will use the satellite for both video content delivery and internet connectivity, among other services, in Latin America.

The satellite recently passed all the functional and environmental tests in the construction process after Space Systems Loral (SSL) completed manufacture in its Palo Alto, California facilities. SSL will run the last series of tests at the launch site in order to verify proper functioning of the satellite after its transfer to Baikonur. It will then be integrated into the Proton M Breeze M launch vehicle for its launch scheduled for this coming September.
