Good news from SES , Luxemboug today (September 30, 2013)

The ASTRA 2E satellite blasts into space on board an ILS Proton Breeze M booster last night at 3:38am Baikonur time (23:38 CET and 17:38 EDT on September 29).

After a 9-hour, 12-minute mission, the Breeze M upper stage of the Proton rocket successfully released the ASTRA 2E satellite directly into geostationary transfer orbit, from where ASTRA 2E will be deployed at the 28.2/28.5 degrees orbital arc.



54th SES satellite to be deployed into 28.2/28.5 degrees East orbital arc

The satellite was built for SES by Astrium of France. Based on the highly reliable Eurostar E3000 platform, the spacecraft carries 60 Ku-band transponders, including 12 incremental transponders for delivery of services outside Europe, as well as 4 Ka-band transponders.

It will enable the delivery of next generation broadcast and broadband services in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. ASTRA 2E, which had a launch mass of 6 tonnes, will feature a wingspan of 40m once its solar arrays are deployed in orbit, generating 13 kW of spacecraft power at the end of its 15-year design lifetime.

Romain Bausch, CEO of SES says "We would like to thank Astrium and ILS for the successful ASTRA 2E mission. The 54th satellite in SES’ global fleet provides significant capacity expansion at a strategic orbital neighborhood over Europe. In combination with ASTRA 2F which was launched in September 2012, and the upcoming ASTRA 2G due for launch next year, ASTRA 2E is an important part of our fleet renewal programme at the 28.2/28.5 degrees orbital arc. The state-of-the-art new satellites provide more focused and higher power to our broadcast customers, while the Ka-band on board supports the delivery of next-generation satellite broadband services"-

Freesat and ASTRA NITs are now in agreement, apart from

10964.00,H,22000 ;tsid = 2057, Freesat
10964.25,H,22000 ;tsid = 2057, ASTRA

where ASTRA has it right.

Satellite Transponder Changes

All transponders in the 12500-12750 MHz Band have now been deactivated, bar, for unknown reasons, 12544.75 H on the ASTRA (BSkyB) platform.

For non-platform receivers, a Network scan may be advisable on 11778V for ASTRA, 11427H for Freesat. This will cause the device to write the new transponder list automatically.

Details of the changes follow.

Format:
Old Transponder --> New Transponder
