Astrium: Astra Satellites

In November 2009, Astrium was selected by global satellite operator SES S.A. to deliver four new communications satellites. The satellites, to be designated Astra 2E, Astra 2F, Astra 2G and Astra 5B, are scheduled for launch in several steps between 2012 and 2014. These satellites will be built on a Eurostar E3000 platform, the latest version of Astrium’s Eurostar series which has proven to be highly reliable in commercial service. The design life of each satellite is 15 years. The video is a little bit borings (and combined with not the best music selection) but includes a wide variety of high tech shots!
