EUTELSAT-II F4

NSSDCA/COSPAR ID: 1992-041B

Description

EUTELSAT-II F-4 was a communications geostationary satellite launched by an Ariane booster from the Kourou Space Center in French Guiana. It was originally stationed at 7 deg E. It was part of a constellation of 5 satellites that were basically identical. With the arrival of the W series of satellites at the orbital positions until now used by EUTELSAT-II F1, F2, F3 and F4, these satellites were gradually relocated to new positions where they could continue to be used for a full range of telecommunications and television services. EUTELSAT-II F4 was slightly modified by stretching its Widebeam in order to provide improved coverage of Eastern Europe, as far as Moscow.
