The Brazilian communications satellite operator Embratel Star One has ordered a new communications satellite STAR ONE D2 from SSL (aka Space Systems/Loral) and, at the same time, booked a 2019 launch for it on Arianespace’s Ariane 5 ECA. This follows the Ariane 5 ECA launch last year of its sister spacecraft the Star One D1. The 6200 kg spacecraft will carry a communications payload in C-, Ku- Ka- and X-bands, with the latter aimed at Brazilian military use.
