DISH Satellite Ready to Fly
Posted 21 June 2002 - 07:10 AM
The satellite will launch late Friday night Mountain Time (11:15) and Pacific Time, and early Saturday morning Eastern Time (1:15) and Central Time. Lift-off will take place from Kazakhstan, and the satellite will fly aboard a Proton rocket.
International Launch Services, backed by Lockheed Martin, is coordinating the launch. According to ILS, the bird will be located at EchoStar's orbital slot at 110 degrees. Space Systems/Loral built the satellite for the company.
The spot-beam satellite will allow EchoStar to expand local TV offerings and increase in-orbit backup capacity.
