Built by Space Systems/Loral and weighing 5,600 kilograms the satellite was inserted into geosynchronous transfer orbit one hour later by the Block DM-SL upper stage and operators at the Intelsat Launch Control Center acquired its first signals shortly after separation. It was the first of three Sea Launch’s planned missions in 2012.
