 Intelsat - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Intelsat’s largest spacecraft supplier is Space Systems/Loral, having built 31 spacecraft (as of 2003), or nearly half of the fleet.
Intelsat maintains it corporate headquarters in Bermuda, with a majority of staff and satellite functions — administrative headquarters — located at the Intelsat Global Services Corporation offices in Washington, DC.
Intelsat was operating Intelsat Americas-7 until it was lost on 29 November 2004 [1].

An overview of Intelsat's first 20 years, 1964-1984, shows that the U.S.' pre-eminent position in that organization is the logical outcome of a post-World-War-II quest to maintain global, political and economic stability while striving to enhance the free flow of information.
Some are worried that the very same regional satellite organizations which Intelsat has promoted as a means for lesser developed nations to improve their communication systems could lead to the downfall of the whole.
All that stands between Intelsat splitting into competing regional systems is the vaguely worded Article XIV of its constitution which states that members should refrain from establishing competing systems which could lead to "significant economic harm to Intelsat."22 Large corporations also pose a threat.

 Boeing: Integrated Defense Systems - Satellite Development Center - Boeing 376 Fleet - Intelsat VI
Intelsat VI was the next logical step in an evolving technology that began in 1965 with INTELSAT's Early Bird, the world's first commercial communications satellite.
INTELSAT controllers commanded the spacecraft to separate from the combined booster stage and perigee motor, allowing the satellite to be placed in low, but nonoperational, Earth orbit.
INTELSAT had contracted with NASA for the mission, during which three astronauts captured the satellite and attached a new perigee motor to take it to its proper orbit.

 Intelsat Tests 'Frothy' Junk Market To Buy Panamsat
Intelsat plans the biggest US junk bond sale in 16 years as it takes on $3.2 billion of debt in a leveraged buyout of PanAmSat Holding Corp. The Bermuda-based company said it may sell $4.2 billion of bonds to refinance debt and help fund the transaction, reports Bloomberg.
Intelsat's debt after the acquisition may be about ten times its earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation, or Ebitda, unless the terms of the transaction change, Moody's Saputo said.
Intelsat, which has $5.8 billion of bonds, issued $2.55 billion of notes on January 24 to finance its takeover by four leveraged buyout firms.

 Chapter Two: Hooked up to the spy network: The UKUSA system
Intelsat satellites carry most of the satellite traffic of interest to intelligence organisations in the South Pacific: diplomatic communications between embassies and their home capitals, all manner of government and military communications, a wide range of business communications, communications of international organisations and political organisations and the personal communications of people living throughout the Pacific.
The Pacific Intelsat satellite was targeted by an NSA station built on a high basalt tableland inside the 100,000-hectare United States Army Yakima Firing Centre, in Washington State in the north-west United States, 200 kilometres south-west of Seattle.
The Intelsat 4A and 5 series satellites differed from earlier ones in that they did not transmit only to the whole of the side of the world within their view; they now also had "east and west hemispheric" beams that transmitted separately.

At the end of summer 2004 a new satellite, Intelsat 10-02 is planned to replace Intelsat 707.
The new Intelsat 10-02 satellite will be co-located at 1° West, and the changeover will be done as a "pass in the night" operation.
This means that the existing Intelsat 707 services will be switched off at a pre-defined date and time, and at the same time, switched to the new Intelsat-10-02 satellite.

 Intelsat to Acquire Rival PanAmSat for $3.2 Billion - New York Times
Intelsat plans to announce today that it has agreed to acquire a rival, the PanAmSat Holding Corporation, creating the world's largest operator of satellites that distribute data and video programming for clients.
Intelsat, which is a private company, will pay $3.2 billion, or $25 a share, for PanAmSat, executives at the companies said.
Intelsat's purchase is a victory for Kohlberg Kravis Roberts, the Carlyle Group and Providence Equity Partners, which bought PanAmSat last year and own 58 percent of its shares.

Adelman says many of these contracts were written in a way that it was hard for any company besides Intelsat to compete.
When it was privatized in 2001 -- it was founded as an intergovernmental organization -- Intelsat's headquarters were already conveniently located in the tax-haven triangle of Bermuda.
Intelsat's lawyers told The Washington Post last fall that provisions that would have barred contracts to "corporate runaways" left the company unscathed.

 Boeing: Integrated Defense Systems - Satellite Development Center - Boeing 376 Fleet - Intelsat IV
The Intelsat IV series of communications satellites, launched from Cape Canaveral during the early 1970's, marked the fifth generation of geostationary communications satellites developed by Hughes Aircraft Company, today known as Boeing Satellite Systems, since the 1963 launching of Syncom II, the world's first synchronous satellite.
In contrast, the Intelsat IVs weighed over 1300 pounds (595 kg) in orbit and were more than 17 feet (5.31 meters) in diameter.
All seven spacecraft exceeded their design lives and have been retired from active service, the last of which, Intelsat IV F-1 was retired in October 1987.
