The decision made just over a year ago by the European satellite operator, Eutelsat, to rename its entire satellite fleet according to the GEO location where they are serving has led to confusion with respect to which satellite is which, especially when they relocate and then are renamed. To counter this confusion, Flightglobal’s SpaceTrak database, which is used by much of the space and related insurance industries, will henceforth rename all Eutelsat satellites according to the Eutelsat name followed by the international number (a number that does not change once a satellite is in orbit). This will be followed by the “official” Eutelsat name in brackets/parentheses.
The launch provider International Launch Services (ILS) and the commercial satellite operator Eutelsat announced a contract for the launch of a Eutelsat satellite in the 2014-2016 timeframe by ILS Proton M/Breeze M from the Baikonur Cosmodrome near Tyuratam in Kazakhstan. This announcement was made the day after the successful Proton M/Breeze M launch of the Eutelsat 3D satellite.
The European satellite operator Eutelsat Communications and Arianespace signed a long-term multiple launch services covering up to four launches in the 2016 and 2017 timeframe to carry yet-to-be disclosed spacecraft. , The new contract is in addition to the contract signed in July 2012 between Eutelsat and Arianespace for the 2014 and 2015 timeframe, covering one launch and an option for a further launch.
On 11 October it was announced that the construction order for European satellite operator Eutelsat’s communications satellite Eutelsat 8 West B has been awarded to Thales Alenia Space. As noted by its name, the satellite will be position at roughly 8 degrees west and will carry carry 40 Ku-band to meet growing demand for direct-broadcast television across the Middle East and North Africam and 10 C-band transponders for services to Southern Africa and South America.
European commercial satellite operator Eutelsat has formally complained to the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) and to the Government of Saudi Arabia that its Eutelsat 25A communications satellite operated over the longitude of 25.5 degrees East in Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) is being jammed by television signal interference.
