November 24, 2009

Intelsat, the world's leading provider of fixed satellite services, has announced that an Atlas V rocket provided by United Launch Alliance successfully launched the Intelsat 14 satellite (IS-14).

The satellite, built by Space Systems/Loral, will provide high-powered data services through its C- and Ku-band payload to Intelsat customers throughout Latin America, Europe and Africa. Once IS-14 is operational, it will replace Intelsat's 1R satellite at 315º E, providing customers with capacity that has a useful life slated to last the next 16 years.
