Star One C2 Satellite Operational In Orbit

by Staff Writers
Cannes, France (SPX) Jun 09, 2008
Following the Final Acceptance Review (FAR) successfully held on May, the control of Star One C2 telecommunication satellite has been transferred to Star One and is now operational in geostationary orbit at 70 degees West.

This satellite, designed and built by Thales Alenia Space, is equipped with 28 transponders in C-band, 16 in Ku-band as well as an X-band payload for military exclusive use.

Star One C2 is dedicated to the Brazilian satellite operator Star One, owned by Embratel (80%) and GE International Holdings (20%). This satellite will reinforce Star One's strategic position as the major regional operator in Latin America.

Thales Alenia Space has already manufactured Star One C1, the first of the "C-series", which was successfully launched in November 2007 and started to expand the operator's scope of services.

The new satellite Star One C2 features a cutting-edge commercial payload that will provide TV, Internet and voice services for South America, Mexico and Florida, through its hybrid C- and Ku-band payload.
