THE EUTELSAT 8 WEST B satellite, based on Thales Alenia Space's Spacebus 4000 C4 platform, weighed 12,747 pounds - nearly 5.8 metric tons - at liftoff and is designed for a 15-year service life. Eutelsat 8 West B is named for its final operating post along the equator at 8 degrees west longitude, where the satellite's 40 Ku-band transponders will beam direct-to-home high-definition and Ultra HD television to millions of homes in the Middle East and North Africa. Ten C-band transponders will serve telecommunications customers in Africa and South America, according to Paris-based Eutelsat. The new satellite replaces coverage offered by Eutelsat 8 West A-launched on Ariane 4 in 2001-and Eutelsat 8 West C-launched on the first Atlas 5 flight in 2002. The aging craft will be re-deployed to other missions.
