Loral Space and Communications and Alcatel Alsthom are to develop and launch the EuropeStar multiple geostationary telecommunications and broad- casting satellite system. The system will provide telecommunications and other services to users as far afield as Western Europe to South-East Asia. EuropeStar, which will join Loral Skynet's Global Marketing Alliance, will consist of three Ku-band satellites at 43í, 45í and 47.5í in geostationary orbit.
