Welcome to the Intelsat New Line Up

As of 1 February 2007, Intelsat will change the names of 16 of its 51 satellites. The name change is part of our integration efforts, and is being implemented based in part on consensus feedback and recommendations from our customer community.

The changes being implemented are the following:

1. Galaxy (G) replaces the Intelsat Americas (IA) brand

2. Intelsat (IS) replaces the PanAmSat brand (PAS)

3. Unique or joint venture satellites, such as SBS-6, Horizons or APR, will retain the same name
Intelsat Changes Names of 16 Satellites - "Conversion Table" is HERE:

P.S. Thanks for the heads up, Peja :)

:hair: I had just become used to translating all those T-5 references out there, and I was starting to warm up to using G-16 instead of G-4R. Now I've got to relearn (and do some relabeling) all over again!

Thanks for the tip! :grin:
