Problems in orbit for Solaris Mobile
|15 мая 2009|
S-Band service encounters problem.
It seems that all is not going as it should with the S-Band service on the W2A satellite launched last month by Solaris Mobile.The satellite owner has been conducting tests and have found an "anomaly" in the service. Proposed S-Band services include mobile digital television services (DVB-SH) as well as additional mobile comms services. The 2 Gigahertz (GHz) S-band frequency spectrum sits alongside the UMTS standard already used across Europe for 3G terrestrial services.
A Solaris Mobile statement said: "Solaris Mobile and its shareholders Eutelsat Communications and SES Astra announce that the current evaluation of the in-orbit tests of the S-band payload on the W2A satellite launched on April 3 indicate an anomaly which requires further tests.
Additional analysis is consequently planned with the satellite’s prime contractor, Thales Alenia Space, in order to identify the cause of the anomaly and to fully assess the extent of the S-band payload's capability to provide mobile satellite services to the European marketplace.
Solaris Mobile remains confident of its ability to meet the commitments made according to the European Selection and Authorisation Process, under which it has applied for S-band spectrum to provide these services. The company is evaluating a range of options to compensate for this situation and expects to make further announcements in due course."
