Telstar 11N at 37.6°W

The Telstar 11N at 37.6°W was manufactured by Space Systems Loral and designed off the LS-1300 model bus. For propulsion the Telstar 11N at 37.6°W uses R-4D-11, 4 SPT-100 plasma thrusters. 2 deployable solar arrays are used for the power. The Telstar 11N at 37.6°W is operated by Telesat Canada. These design details check out with International Media Switzerland and we are proud to offer this satellite.

Launch

The Telstar 11N at 37.6°W was launched on February 26th, 2009. The launch site for the Telstar 11N at 37.6°W took place at Baikonur Cosmodrome, located in Kazakhstan. At launch, the mass of Telstar 11N at 37.6°W was just over 4,000 kg. A Zenit 3SLB rocket was used to successfully launch the Telstar 11N at 37.6°W into orbit.

The Cospar number for the Telstar 11N at 37.6°W is 2009-009A. The Norad number is 34111. The orbit of Telstar 11N at 37.6°W takes place at 37.6°W. The orbit of Telstar 11N at 37.6°W is a geostationary orbit, with a perigee of 35,774 km and an apogee of 35,801 km. The eccentricity of the orbit for the Telstar 11N at 37.6°W is 3.20E-04. The inclination is 0.04 degrees. Finally, the dry mass of the Telstar 11N at 37.6°W in orbit is 1,773 kg. In all, the Telstar 11N at 37.6°W has been successfully in orbit for over 4 years.

Onboard Materials

International Media Switzerland is confident in the onboard materials of this satellite. The Telstar 11N at 37.6°W contains 39 high powered Ku-band transponders onboard the Telstar 11N at 37.6°W. These transponders are able to provide video, data, and other telecommunication services throughout North America, Africa, and Europe. In addition to these transponders, the 4 beams onboard the Telstar 11N at 37.6°W are the Ku-band Africa beam, Ku-band Atlantic Ocean beam, Ku-band North and Central America beam, and Ku-band Europe beam. Also, the beacons onboard the Telstar 11N at 37.6°W are 11199.25V, 11198.25H, 11699.50V, and 11698.50H.

Track Record

Telstar has a history of quality satellites going all the way back to the 1960’s with the launch of the Telstar 1 in 1962. Since then, Telstar has been operating quality satellites and Telstar 11N at 37.6°W is one of many such satellites. The track record of Telesat is strong, and this track record fits right in with the satellites offered by International Media Switzerland.

Future

The future is just as important as the present and International Media Switzerland has you covered. The future of the Telstar 11N at 37.6°W is strong and the satellite is expected to least until at least 2024 with a life expectancy of 15 years. Due to the high-quality of these satellites, the Telstar 11N at 37.6°W may remain active well past its expiration date.
