THURAYA-3

Mission Overview

Sea Launch successfully delivered the Thuraya-3 satellite to geosynchronous transfer orbit on January 15, 2008, with a flawless flight of a Zenit-3SL vehicle. This achievement marked the completion of Sea Launch's 25th mission. Specified for a designed lifetime of 12.5 years, Sea Launch's accurate insertion into equatorial orbit is expected to yield additional years of service life. This powerful mobile communications satellite will expand Thuraya's network coverage to include all key markets of the Asia-Pacific region.
