    HOT BIRD™ 9
    The HOT BIRD™ 9 broadcast satellite will be launched in 2008 and positioned at the Group's premium video neighbourhood at 13 degrees East.

    Designed to cover all 102 Ku-band transponders at the HOT BIRD™ neighbourhood, it will be able to substitute any transponder on any other HOT BIRD™ satellite. Its broad footprint and high emission power will enable digital and new HDTV channels as well as interactive services to be received by small DTH antennas and cable and community networks throughout Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.

    Fueling of HOT BIRDTM 9 is performed in preparation for its Ariane 5 launch for Eutelsat
    November 7, 2008


    Satellite preparations for Arianespace’s upcoming Ariane 5 launch are moving into their final phase with the fueling HOT BIRD™ 9 – which is one of two passengers to be orbited on this mission for the Eutelsat telecommunications operator.

    HOT BIRD 9 was “topped off” today in the S5A fueling hall, which is located in the center of the Spaceport’s S5 payload preparation building. The satellite will join Eutelsat’s W2M spacecraft on Ariane 5’s year-end flight from French Guiana, closing out Arianespace’s launch activity for 2008.

    Built by EADS Astrium, HOT BIRD 9 carries a payload of 64 Ku-band transponders and will have a liftoff mass of 4,880 kg. Its high emission power will support the relay of digital and new high-definition TV channels – along with interactive services – for reception by small direct-to-home antennas, as well distribution through cable and community networks. The coverage area is throughout Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.

    The three-axis stabilized satellite is designed for an operational lifetime of more than 15 years, with an end-of-life power of 14.5 kW. After its launch by Ariane 5, HOT BIRD 9 will be positioned at Eutelsat’s premium video neighborhood orbital slot of 13 deg. East.

    HOT BIRD 9’s co-passenger on the upcoming Ariane 5 mission is W2M, a television and radio broadcast satellite for Eutelsat coverage across Europe. It also carries a steerable beam that can be re-oriented in orbit according to market requirements.

    W2M will have a mass of approximately 3,460 kg. at liftoff, and is to be positioned at an orbital slot of 16 deg. East. The satellite was developed by a European-Indian alliance of EADS Astrium and ANTRIX (the commercial arm of the Indian Space Research Organisation).

    Ariane 5 launch with HOT BIRD™ 9 and W2M is postponed

    November 28, 2008

    Arianespace has postponed its upcoming next Ariane 5 launch, initially scheduled for December 10, because of logistics difficulties in French Guiana.

    The new launch date will be announced as soon as possible.

    This flight will be Arianespace’s sixth mission of 2008, and will carry two payloads for the European-based Eutelsat telecommunications operator: HOT BIRD™ 9 and W2M.

    Mission Update

    Eutelsat's W2M spacecraft begins final preparations for the Ariane 5 launch on December 20

    December 8, 2008

    Integration of the Eutelsat W2M satellite for its upcoming Ariane 5 launch moved into a new phase today with this spacecraft’s integration on the cone-shaped adapter system that serves as its interface with the heavy-lift launch vehicle.

    Our photo report from French Guiana details the process, which occurred in the Spaceport’s state-of-the-art S5 payload preparation center.

    Talking Hot bird™ 9 and w2m ready for launch on december 20, 2008

    HOT BIRD™ 9 AND W2M READY FOR LAUNCH ON DECEMBER 20, 2008

    Eutelsat’s HOT BIRD™ 9 and W2M satellites are ready for launch from the Kourou Space Centre in French Guiana on an Ariane 5 ECA rocket. The launch of Ariane Flight 186 is on track for December 20 and will be the sixth and final Ariane 5 launch in 2008.

    Built by EADS Astrium, Eutelsat's high-power HOT BIRD™ 9 satellite is designed for consumer broadcasting to satellite and cable homes across Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. Equipped with 64 transponders, it will join Eutelsat’s 13 degrees East position to increase in-orbit sparing at the Group’s premium video neighbourhood. HOT BIRD™ 9 is identical to HOT BIRD™ 8 which was launched to 13 degrees East in August 2006 and HOT BIRD™ 10 which will be orbited by Arianespace beginning of 2009.

    W2M, built by EADS Astrium and the Indian Space Agency, ISRO, will be positioned at Eutelsat’s 16 degrees East position one of the fastest-growing neighbourhoods for digital broadcasting in central Europe and Indian Ocean islands. Operating up to 30 transponders, it will replace the W2 satellite, in service since 1998.

    With HOT BIRD™ 9 and W2M, Eutelsat is implementing a far-reaching investment programme of seven satellites which will expand, renew and secure its in-orbit resources of its fleet. The two launches in 2008 will be followed by three in 2009 and a further two in 2010.

    Watch the launch live > Launch window opens on December 20 at 21:51 GMT.

    The launch can also be watched live via satellite as a free-to-air signal from two key Eutelsat video neighbourhoods:

    HOT BIRD™ at 13 degrees East
    Frequency: 10 853 MHz
    Polarisation: Horizontal
    Symbol rate: 27.500 Msymbol/s
    FEC: ¾



    ATLANTIC BIRD™ 3 at 5 degrees West
    Frequency: 12 543 MHz
    Polarisation: Horizontal
    Symbol rate: 27.500 Msymbol/s
    FEC: ¾
