Eutelsat Americas rebrands Satmex fleet

Eutelsat Amercias has renamed its fleet of Satmex satellites, reflecting its strategy of operating under a single brand. 

Each satellite in the fleet will now follow the Eutelsat pattern of a number reflecting its orbital position and a letter indicating its order of arrival at that position.

Under the name changes Satmex 5 becomes Eutelsat 115 West A; Satmex 6 becomes Eutelsat 113 West A; Satmex 8 becomes Eutelsat 117 West A; the yet-to-launch Satmex 7 becomes Eutelsat 115 West B; and the yet-to-launch Satmex 9 becomes Eutelsat 117 West B.
