MSV, ILS Team for Next-Gen Satellite

01 июня 2007
Mobile satellite service provider Mobile Satellite Ventures (MSV) and its Canadian arm has contracted with International Launch Services (ILS) for the 2009 launch of one of two high-powered, next-generation satellites. The new units are designed to provide seamless broadband wireless coverage of North and Central America to consumer electronic devices.

The ILS agreement is for a single firm launch which includes an option for the second, the company said.

According to MSV, ILS will use a Russian-built Proton/Breeze M vehicle to launch the spacecraft from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. The MSV satellites, under construction by Boeing, will operate in geostationary orbit from 101 degrees and 107.3 degrees west.

The satellites feature 22-meter diameter, elliptical mesh reflectors that will support L-band communication with conventional handsets through a network-based on the company's patented ancillary terrestrial component technology, MSV said.
