SES-8 is SpaceX's first launch to a geostationary transfer orbit -- 80,000 kilometers (50,000 miles) from Earth -- and most challenging mission to date, the company said earlier on Twitter.
A satellite, weighing more than 6900 kg, is planned to be launched into geostationary transfer orbit on an ILS Proton Breeze M in the late 2015 or early 2016 timeframe from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.
The H-IIB has the capacity to launch a satellite, or multiple satellites, up to 8 metric tons in weight into geostationary transfer orbit. This capacity enables the rocket's use for launching today's increasingly larger satellites, including communication satellites, thereby further expanding the company's launch service application range.
"We are developing GSLV-M III vehicle to put heavier communications satellites, that is, satellites with mass of four tons into a geostationary transfer orbit," said Radhakrishnan.
Approximately 27 minutes after lift-off the spacecraft separated from the Ariane 5 upper stage and was placed into geostationary transfer orbit. Initial signals from NSS-12 were received at a control station in Uralla, Australia at 8:32 p.m.
The Proton Breeze M is one of the few launch vehicles capable of lifting the I-4 satellite Co the size of a London double-decker bus and weighing six tons Co into geostationary transfer orbit.
The Indian Space Research Organization's (ISRO) craftwill, like its Chinese counterpart, first occupy a geostationary transfer orbit before using its onboard engine to reach lunar orbit.
They will be placed in geostationary transfer orbit, which differs from typical geostationary orbit by the satellite's variable altitude above the ground, enabling the testing of equipment at various altitudes.
For example, while the cost of moving mass into geostationary transfer orbit may be expensive (according to Watts, moving 2,200 pounds to geostationary transfer orbit using a Chinese Long March 2C costs twenty-five million dollars), middle tens to low hundreds of millions of dollars for an anti-satellite program may be an attractive price for a capability to attack the small number of high-value U.S.
For this 105th flight of an Ariane 5, the payload lift performance to geostationary transfer orbit is approximately 10,660 kg.
