Satellite operator Eutelsat has said that the Yahsat’Al Yah 3 satellite is “operating nominally” following a launch anomaly late last week.
“The mission experienced some challenges during the launch stages which resulted in the Al Yah 3 satellite being inserted into an orbit that differed from the flight plan,” said Eutelsat in a statement.
“Thereafter, the satellite was successfully acquired by Yahsat and the satellite is healthy and operating nominally. A revised flight plan will be executed in order to achieve the operational orbit and fulfil the original mission.”
Eutelsat has contracted capacity on the Yahsat’Al Yah 3 satellite for its African broadband service.
