Intelsat 10-02 (or IS-10-02, Intelsat 1002, IS-1002, Intelsat Alpha-2, Intelsat X-02 and Thor 10-02[1]) is a communications satellite operated by Intelsat.[4]

Launch

Intelsat 10-02 was launched by a Proton-M rocket from Baikonur Cosmodrome, Kazakhstan, at 22:27:00 UTC on 16 June 2004.[5]

Capacity and coverage

The 3 tonne satellite provides digital broadcasting, telephone, and broadband internet access to users in Europe, South America, Africa and the Middle East through its 36 Ku-band, and 70 C-band transponders after parking over 1.0° West longitude.[5]

Future

In late 2020, Intelsat-10-02 is scheduled to rendezvous with Northrop Grumman's MEV-2 satellite, which will extend its service life by returning it to a proper geosynchronous orbit.[6][7]
