Inmarsat BGAN Countdown T-minus 2: Ride Into Orbit
The second Inmarsat-4 (I-4)
satellite has a more direct
route into geostationary orbit
than its twin - the F1 - which
was launched successfully in March 2005 from Cape Canaveral, Florida.
A ground station at
Lake Cowichan in British
Columbia acquires the first
signal from the I-4 - two hours
after launch.
The I-4 spends
about two days in the first
transfer orbit as initial position
fixing takes place.
With testing complete after about four weeks, the satellite is manoeuvred to
its final location above northern Brazil, ready to bring broadband
to the Americas.
