Arianespace says it has rescheduled the cancelled launch of the dual payload of Intelsat 37e and BSAT 4a satellites to a target date of September 29th.

The initial launch was aborted at the very last second on September 5th at the Kourou launch facility when an anomaly was sensed in one of the giant rocket’s two solid-propellant boosters.

Arianespace says it has since identified and replaced the electrical equipment and undertaken all of the related checks verifying Ariane 5 for launch again.
