#AceNewsDesk – Intelsat picked SpaceX and its European competitor Arianespace to launch seven satellites in the coming years, with the contracts worth a combined $390 million.

“Under the terms of the contract, beginning in 2022 Intelsat will launch four of its satellites on two SpaceX Falcon 9 rockets and two more satellites on an Ariane 5 rocket.

The final seventh satellite is contracted with both SpaceX and Arianespace, as a way for Intelsat to make sure it launches on time. Intelsat will award whichever company doesn’t launch the seventh satellite with a contract for a separate later launch, the company told CNBC.”
