Mexico, Paris, 21 May, 2014 - Eutelsat Americas (formerly Satmex), an subsidiary of Eutelsat Communications (NYSE Euronext Paris: ETL) is is aligning the names of current and future satellites to reflect Eutelsat’s strategy of operating under a single brand.


From May 21, each satellite will follow the Eutelsat pattern of a number reflecting its orbital position and a letter indicating its order of arrival at that position. This logic will enable Eutelsat Americas’ community of users to identify where a satellite is located in geostationary orbit (a key metric in the satellite sector) and its chronology at the orbital position where it is located.

Please see the table below for the specifics of former and new names:

 

Former Name

New Name

Satmex 5

EUTELSAT 115 West A

Satmex 6

EUTELSAT 113 West A

Satmex 8

EUTELSAT 117 West A

Satmex 7 (future satellite)

EUTELSAT 115 West B

Satmex 9 (future satellite)

EUTELSAT 117 West B

 

 

Patricio Northland, CEO of Eutelsat Americas, said: “With the renaming of our satellites we are now fully aligned with the Eutelsat brand and integrated into a global team with a one company operating philosophy. The Eutelsat name stands for longstanding experience, innovation and technical excellence and we are proud to add our expertise to these features.” - Read More>>
