The mission to launch the Intelsat 35e communications satellite from the Kennedy Space Center will occur no earlier than Monday evening.
Intelsat 35e, the fourth in the next-generation of high throughput satellites fom Intelsat, was scheduled to be launched by SpaceX on the Falcon 9 launch vehicle on July 2.
Manufactured by Boeing and equipped with an advanced digital payload, Intelsat 35e will deliver services in C- and Ku-band for wireless infrastructure, mobility, broadband, government and media customers in the Americas, the Caribbean, Europe and Africa.
The Intelsat 35e Ku-band services include a customized high power wide beam for DTH service delivery in the Caribbean, as well as services for mobility and government applications in the Caribbean, trans-Europe to Africa and the African continent.
Intelsat 35e will be placed into service at 325.5 degrees East where it replaces Intelsat 903, which will be redeployed to another Intelsat orbital location by year-end.
