The national satellite agency Arsat is responsible for the overall project with public company Invap having designed and built the satellite. "The satellite will improve DTT and pay-TV distribution inside Argentina and also from Argentina to other countries" said Matías Bianchi, Arsat's president
In a statement released Thursday, ESA said "teams are investigating the possibilities of exploiting the satellites to maximum advantage, despite their non-nominal injection orbits and within the limited propulsion capabilities."
Arianespace said in a statement: "According to the initial analyses, an anomaly is thought to have occurred during the flight phase involving the Fregat upper stage, causing the satellites to be injected into a non-compliant orbit."
"Investigators from the European Space Agency (ESA) and launch operator Arianespace will work with an "internal task force" set up by the European Commission to figure out what went wrong" the EU's executive said
