HELLAS-SAT 3 is a communications satellite designed to broadcast television, link European air travelers with Wi-Fi, and relay video and data signals. Developed in a cost-sharing arrangement by Hellas-Sat and Inmarsat, HELLAS-SAT 3 will broadcast direct-to-home television programming over Europe, Africa and the Middle East with 44 Ku-band transponders and a Ka-band payload owned by the Hellas-Sat, a telecom provider based in Greece and Cyprus. It will expand and eventually replace broadcast capacity currently offered by the Hellas-Sat 2 satellite launched from Cape Canaveral by an Atlas 5 rocket in May 2003. The satellite 'will be Hellas-Sat's second satellite at 39 degrees east delivering in-orbit, direct-to-home, and telecom services over its coverage areas in Europe, the Middle East and sub-Saharan African countries. The S-band payload on the Hellas-Sat/Inmarsat S EAN spacecraft will connect airline passengers traveling across Europe with Wi-Fi as a centerpiece of Inmarsat's European Aviation Network. The European Aviation Network will have coverage in all 28 European Union member states, plus Norway and Switzerland. The aeronautical communications project is a partnership between Inmarsat and Deutsche Telekom, which provides a network of approximately 300 4G ground sites, allowing a computerized controller aboard aircraft to automatically switch between ground and satellite Wi-Fi service as needed.
