Arab Satellite Communications Organization

Arab Satellite Communications Organization

ARABSAT ist der Name von kleinen geostationären Telekommunikationis-Satelliten der Firma Arab Satellite Communications Organization (ARABSAT) in Riad. Die neuen Satelliten wurden umbenannt und heißen BADR.



Die Arabsat-Satelliten dienen vor allem dem Direktempfang von Hörfunk- und Fernsehsignalen in arabischer Sprache.

Die Satelliten

Nicht mehr in Betrieb:

  • Arabsat 1A (1985-1992)
  • Arabsat 1B (1985-1993)
  • Arabsat 1C (1992-1997)
  • Arabsat 2A (1996-2005)
  • Arabsat 4A/BADR-4 (2006)

Am 28. Februar 2006 wurde Arabsat 4A, anderer Name BADR-4, mit einer Trägerrakete vom Typ Proton-M vom Weltraumbahnhof Baikonur in Kasachstan ins All befördert. Durch eine Fehlfunktion der Oberstufe der Proton-Rakete erreichte Arabsat 4A jedoch nicht seine vorgesehene Umlaufbahn und wurde am 24. März 2006 durch ein Bremsmanöver in die Erdatmosphäre gebracht, wo er planmäßig verglühte.
