The launch vehicle and its Arabsat-5A and COMS satellite payloads have been placed in stand-by mode and maintained in fully safe conditions.
A new date for the mission will be announced as soon as possible.
The heavy-lift Ariane 5 mission with the Arabsat-5A and COMS satellite passengers was rescheduled for Thursday, June 24, following additional verifications that were performed after a launcher subsystem anomaly stopped the final countdown the day before.
A video of the countdown, which aborted at T-16, can be seen here:
