Arianespace Will Launch The NSIL Satellite For Tata Sky On June 22
• Two long-term Arianespace clients will have satellites launched.
• MEASAT, a Malaysian satellite operator, and NSIL are the two companies.
• Two telecommunication satellites will be orbited by the first Ariane 5 of the year.
Arianespace will launch India’s newest space PSU NSIL’s first demand-driven communication satellite for Tata Sky on June 22, according to the France-based satellite launch service providers.
The four-tonne Ku-Band GSAT-24, constructed for New Space India Limited (NSIL) by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), would provide high-quality television, telecommunications, and broadcasting services across India.
NSIL will launch the GSAT-24 with the help of Arianespace, a French company that will use its Ariane-5 heavy-lift rocket. While NSIL sources indicated the satellite was in advanced stages of testing, Arianespace confirmed that the Ariane-5 launch from Europe’s Spaceport, the Guiana Space Centre, is “planned for June 22.”
According to an Arianespace announcement, “the first Ariane 5 of the year will orbit two geostationary telecommunication satellites, measat-3d and gsat-24.”
The satellites will be launched for MEASAT, Malaysia’s biggest satellite operator, and New Space India Limited (NSIL), a government of India business under the Department of Space, according to the statement (DOS).
“This Ariane 5 Launch From Europe’s Spaceport, The Guiana Space Center, Is Slated For June 22 Between 21:03 And 22:43 UTC,” Arianespace Said.
MEASAT-3d is a multi-mission telecommunications satellite developed by Airbus Defence and Space that will be co-located with MEASAT-3a and MEASAT-3b at the 91.5°E orbital slot.
“This new satellite will significantly improve broadband speeds of up to 100Mbps per user in areas with limited or no terrestrial network throughout Malaysia,” it said, “while continuing to provide redundancy and additional capacity for video distribution in HD, 4K, and eventually 8K in the Asia-Pacific region.”
Arianespace stated that the Ariane-5 heavy-lift launcher would launch satellites for two of its major customers — MEASAT, the Malaysian satellite operator, and the GSAT-24 for India’s NSIL — and that the Ariane-5 is an ESA program carried out in collaboration between public institutions and industry.
NSIL announced last year that the full satellite capacity onboard GSAT-24 would be leased to Tata Sky, a long-term customer, to suit their DTH application demands.
