SES-14 in Good Health and on Track Despite Launch Anomaly


Following Ariane-5 launch anomaly, SES has successfully established connection with SES-14


Kourou, French Guiana

Guiana Space Centre – Following the anomaly that occurred during the launch on an Ariane 5 rocket last night, SES announces that it has successfully established a telemetry and telecommand connection to its SES-14 spacecraft and is setting up a new orbit raising plan now. SES-14 would thus reach the geostationary orbit only four weeks later than originally planned. SES confirms that the spacecraft is in good health, all subsystems on board are nominal, and the satellite is expected to meet the designed life time.
