    Comments: Operated by Al Yah Satellite Communications Company, or Yahsat, of Abu Dhabi, the Y1B spacecraft will bring the new YahClick service to life, offering customers with uninterrupted broadband Internet. Built in collaboration between Thales Alenia Space and Astrium Space with a launch weight of nearly 13,000 pounds (5,897 kg), the Y1B is outfitted with a Ka-band communications package to generate 61 narrow spot beams over its coverage area. The craft is equipped with conventional chemical engines and four electrical propulsion plasma thrusters to maneuver into a circular geostationary orbit at 47.6 East longitude. It joins the Y1A bird launched last April to provide such telecommunications services as high-definition television relay.
