Arianespace Chairman and CEO Stphane Isral said: "I would like to thank Peter Dubock for having accepted the chairmanship of this commission, which was appointed in conjunction with ESA and the European Commission and with the support of the space agencies from France (CNES), Germany (DLR) and Italy (ASI), along with a team of high-level European experts. The commission will now be able to carry out its work independently, operating under a very tight schedule. We sincerely hope that the commission's recommendations will lead to a rapid resumption of missions, while ensuring the high reliability expected of our Soyuz launches from CSG."
...launcher took off at the scheduled time, followed the prescribed trajectory, and the stage separation was carried out correctly," Woerner wrote. "However, the first problem became apparent when the two satellites proved unable to deploy their solar arrays as intended. A more detailed analysis then revealed that the eccentricity, the altitude and the inclination of the satellites' orbits with respect to Earth's equator did not meet the specifications."
Arianespace's Chairman and CEO Stephane Israel said: "I would like to thank Peter Dubock for having accepted the chairmanship of this commission."
...nominally, leading to release of the satellites according to the planned timetable, and reception of signals from the satellites," Arianespace said. "It was only a certain time after the separation of the satellites that the ongoing analysis of the data provided by the telemetry stations operated by the European Space Agency and the French space agency CNES showed that the satellites were not in the expected orbit."
