Comments: Intelsat 15 will provide data and video communications services to Russia, the Middle East, and Indian Ocean regions for up to 17 years.
After in-orbit testing, the satellite will begin operations from a slot at 85 degrees east longitude, where it will replace the Intelsat 709 spacecraft launched in 1996.
The satellite's 22 Ku-band transponders will be attached to two communications beams focused on the Middle East and Russia. The coverage zone stretches from North Africa and eastern Europe to Siberia.
