VIDEO: Inmarsat’s third I-4 satellite launch


Inmarsat, bless them, hooked me up at WAEA with some awesome footage of the recent launch of the third I-4 satellite. The satellite is now stabilised and pointed at the Earth, and is undergoing final in-orbit tests before being moved to its operational position at 98 degrees West

Inmarsat launched the first two I-4 satellites in 2005. With this latest launch, the satellite network provider’s new, higher-bandwidth aeronautical service, SwiftBroadband, will be accessible worldwide – except the extreme polar regions.
