The Land Launch team successfully completed the Telstar 11N mission on February 26, 2009. All systems performed nominally. Space Systems/Loral (SS/L) built this satellite for Telesat, one of the world's leading fixed satellite services operators, to provide high powered, state-of-the-art satellite capacity for a broad range of video and data applications. With 39 high-power Ku-band transponders, Telstar 11N, weighing about 4,012 kg (8,845 lb), is based on the SS/L 1300 platform which provides flexibility for a broad range of applications. The spacecraft also has a unique Atlantic Ocean beam, which will support growing demand for mobile broadband from maritime and aeronautical markets. Following launch, Telstar 11N will operate from 37.5 degrees West Longitude and will connect the continents of North America, Europe and Africa.
