Intelsat 39 and EDRS-C satellites orbited.

The third 2019 flight (105th mission overall) of the Ariane 5 launcher took place successfully during the night of the 6th of August from the Guyana Space Center (CSG) spaceport. The European launcher correctly orbited the Intelsat 39 and EDRS-C satellites, that will provide TV broadcast and in-orbit telecommunication services for LEO satellites respectively.

Ariane 5 leverages the thrust of the two strap-on solid-propelled boosters and of the liquid-oxygen turbopump produced in Italy by Avio, leader of space propulsion technologies.

Giulio Ranzo, CEO of Avio, stated: “It’s the third successful launch of Ariane 5 in 2019. This achievement continues to demonstrate the competitiveness of current European launchers while the development of the new generation launchers Vega C and Ariane 6 is heading towards its completion, providing further confidence and stimulus for Avio and its European partners to resume Vega flight activities at the earliest possible time.”
