On October 11th, 2018, the BELINTERSAT-1 satellite counts the 1,000th day – important milestone of the mission. Launched in January 2016 from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center, the spacecraft continues successfully to retransmit telecommunication signals for customers from Asia, Europe and Africa.

On behalf of the staff of the ground control complex, we congratulate the BELINTERSAT-1 satellite on this significant date, and wish excellent health to all the subsystems and long space service. Thanks for the failure free operation.

Many thanks to the satellite design teams, our partners and customers. We are very pleased to work with you.

The team of the BELINTERSAT project.
