orbital sciences corp (ORB) Details

Orbital Sciences Corporation develops and manufactures small- and medium-class rockets and space systems for commercial, military, and civil government customers in the United States, Europe, Eurasia, Mexico, South America, and East Asia. It operates through three segments: Launch Vehicles, Satellites and Space Systems, and Advanced Space Programs. The Launch Vehicles segment develops and produces space launch vehicles that place satellites into low-earth orbit; interceptor launch vehicles for missile defense systems, such as interceptor boosters; and target launch vehicles, such as suborbital rockets and their principal subsystems, as well as payloads carried by vehicles used in the development and testing of missile defense systems. The Satellites and Space Systems segment develops and produces communications satellites that provide cable and direct-to-home television distribution, business data network connectivity, regional mobile telephony, and other space-based communications services; and science and remote sensing satellites that are used to conduct space-related scientific research, collect imagery and other remotely-sensed data about the Earth, carry out interplanetary and other deep-space exploration missions, and demonstrate new space technologies. This segment also offers space systems and subsystems, including satellite command and data handling, and attitude control and structural subsystems; and a range of space-related technical services, such as analytical, engineering, and production services for space-related science and defense programs. The Advanced Space Programs segment develops and produces human-rated space systems to be used in earth orbit, planetary exploration, and other space missions; advanced flight systems; and small- and medium-class satellites and related systems used for national security space missions and related technology demonstration programs. The company was founded in 1982 and is headquartered in Dulles, Virginia.

Yahsat Selects Orbital Sciences Corp. to Build Al Yah 3 Communications Satellite

Orbital Sciences Corporation announced that Al Yah Satellite Communications Company PrJSC (Yahsat) has awarded the company a firm contract to build the Al Yah 3 Ka-band communications satellite. Based on Orbital's GEOStar-3(TM) satellite platform, the Al Yah 3 satellite will be designed, manufactured and tested at Orbital's satellite manufacturing facility in Dulles, VA. The satellite will extend Yahsat's commercial Ka-band coverage to an additional 600 million users across Africa and Brazil. Al Yah 3 will be launched aboard an Arianespace rocket in the fourth quarter of 2016. Al Yah 3 is the second GEOStar-3 contract award to be announced this year and will be the 28(th) Orbital-built satellite launched into orbit aboard an Ariane rocket. Al Yah 3 will be an all Ka-band high-throughput and light-weight satellite that will set a new standard for affordability and flexibility in its class, while also providing the high quality and dependability of Orbital's reliable GEOStar product line. It will enable the delivery of affordable broadband communications services to numerous countries across Africa, covering 60% of the continent's population, and will also serve Brazil, covering more than 95% of its population.

Orbital Selected by Avanti Communications to Build HYLAS 4 High-Throughput Commercial Satellite

Orbital Sciences Corp. announced that Avanti Communications Group plc. has awarded the company a firm contract to build the HYLAS 4 broadband communications satellite. Based on Orbital's GEOStar-3(TM) satellite platform, the HYLAS 4 satellite will be designed, manufactured and tested at Orbital's satellite manufacturing facility in Dulles, VA. The satellite will deliver up to 28 GHz of capacity in 66 fixed beams positioned over Africa and Europe. A portion of the HYLAS 4 capacity will provide growth for Avanti's existing markets with the remainder available for initiating service to new coverage areas. HYLAS 4 is designed with four steerable beams that also could serve markets in Latin America or Africa. It is planned for launch by Arianespace in early 2017. HYLAS 4 will be the 27(th) Orbital-built satellite launched into orbit aboard an Ariane rocket. The HYLAS 4 satellite's payload will offer Ka-band services across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region with significantly more capacity than the HYLAS 2 satellite that Orbital built and delivered for Avanti in 2012. In addition, the GEOStar-3-based HYLAS 4 spacecraft will provide Avanti the benefits of higher payload capability while still maintaining advantageous launch costs.
