    Comments: ST 2 will be operated by ST 2 Satellite Ventures, a joint company formed by Singapore Telecommunications Ltd., or SingTel, and Chunghwa Telecom Co. of Taiwan. ST 2 was manufactured by Mitsubishi Electric Corp. of Japan, the first satellite built by Mitsubishi for the international commercial market. The spacecraft has a design life of 15 years. Three engine burns by ST 2's on-board propulsion system will circularize its orbit at an altitude of 22,300 miles [35,900 km] over the equator in the next five days. Testing of ST 2's communications instruments should begin around June 1 before the satellite goes into operational service in July, according to Mark Blair, the spacecraft mission director for ST 2 Satellite Ventures. The craft's final position in geosynchronous orbit will be at 88 degrees east longitude. ST 2 replaces and expands communications services provided by ST 1, a satellite launched in 1998 that is now at the end of its design life. Customers will use ST 2 for Internet-based fixed and mobile communications services, including voice and data products for businesses such as direct television broadcasters and maritime companies in Asia and the Middle East. ST 2's communications payload includes six antennas, 41 Ku-band transponders and 10 C-band transponders.
