Arianespace to Launch Intelsat Small GEO Satellite
13 September 2023
Arianespace will launch a small geostationary communication satellite for Intelsat on an Ariane 6 in 2026.
The IS-45 contract comes nearly 40 years after Arianespace conducted its first launch for Intelsat, placing the Intelsat 507 satellite into GEO in October 1983.
The launch market has changed significantly over the four decades since Intelsat 507.
