SES : LANCEMENT RÉUSSI DU SATELLITE ASTRA 5B PAR ARIANE 5

SES S.A. (NYSE Euronext Paris et Bourse de Luxembourg : SESG) annonce que le satellite ASTRA 5B a été mis en orbite avec succès par une fusée Ariane 5 depuis le centre spatial européen de Kourou, en Guyane française, à 19.04 heure locale le 22 mars 2014 (23.04 heure de Paris).

ASTRA 5B a été fabriqué par Airbus Defence and Space Systems à Toulouse, en France, sur la base de la très fiable plate-forme Eurostar E3000. Le satellite sera déployé sur la position orbitale de 31,5 degrés Est, et il est équipé de 40 répéteurs en bande Ku (équivalent à 36 MHz) et de 6 répéteurs en bande Ka.

ASTRA 5B élargira la capacité en répéteurs et la couverture géographique de SES au-dessus de l’Europe centrale et orientale, la Russie et la Communauté des États indépendants (CEI) pour la reception directe par satellite, la télédistribution par câble et les flux de contribution pour les réseaux de télévision numérique terrestre. Le satellite embarque également la deuxième charge hébergée en bande L de SES pour le système européen de navigation par recouvrement géostationnaire (EGNOS) de la Commission européenne. EGNOS aide à vérifier, améliorer et établir des rapports sur la fiabilité et la précision des signaux de positionnement en Europe.

ASTRA 5B avait une masse de lancement de 5 724 kilogrammes, il aura une envergure de 40 mètres lorsque ses panneaux solaires seront déployés en orbite et une puissance de 13 kW à la fin de sa durée de vie prévue de 15 ans.

Romain Bausch, President et CEO de SES, a déclaré: « Le lancement réussi d’ASTRA 5B aujourd’hui m’apporte une satisfaction personnelle toute particulière, moins de deux semaines avant que je quitte officiellement le poste de President et CEO de SES le 3 avril 2014. Le lancement réussi signifie que SES aura fait croître sa flotte, durant mon mandat, de 4 satellites sur une position orbitale unique au-dessus de l’Europe en 1995, à 56 satellites sur 37 créneaux orbitaux à travers le monde aujourd’hui. Dans le même temps, le nombre de répéteurs actifs aura augmenté de 64 à 1508, lorsque ASTRA 5B sera opérationnel. Conformément à notre stratégie bien définie, ASTRA 5B permettra d’augmenter nettement les capacités de SES au-dessus de l’Europe centrale et orientale, la Russie et la Communauté des États indépendants. »

« Nous sommes particulièrement heureux de célébrer ce lancement réussi d’Astra 5B. Non seulement ASTRA 5B est le 8ème satellite construit par Airbus Defence and Space Systems pour SES, c’est aussi le 33ème satellite basé sur notre très fiable plate-forme Eurostar E3000 – qui célèbre ce mois-ci son 10ème anniversaire en orbite », a ajouté François Auque, Directeur Général de la division Systèmes Spatiaux.

Antonio Tajani, Vice-Président de la Commission européenne, chargé de l'industrie et de l'entreprenariat, a affirmé : « Ce nouveau lancement d’une charge hébergée EGNOS illustre l’engagement de la Commission à fournir des signaux de positionnement offrant la plus grande précision possible aux citoyens et entreprises en Europe. Cela ouvre une multitude d’opportunités commerciales, aujourd’hui et à l'avenir, en particulier lorsque EGNOS commencera à fonctionner avec Galileo et que Galileo deviendra opérationnel d’ici fin 2014. »

Airbus Defence and Space est en train de finaliser l’intégration et des tests sur ASTRA 2G qui sera lance plus tard dans l’année. En meme temps, la construction du satellite SES-10 a récemment démarée. Tous deux sont des satellites Eurostar E3000.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it?

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand.
