Arianespace will launch three satellites on the back of an Ariane 5 rocket from the Guiana Space Center (CSG) in Kourou, French Guiana, on 28 July, in a launch window from 21:29 UTC to 22:15 UTC. The satellites to be placed in orbit will serve Japanese B-SAT and operators Intelsat and Northrop Grumman's SpaceLogistics. BSAT-4b was built by the American company Maxar Technologies and will be used to broadcast UHD, 4K and 8K direct-to-home television broadcasting across Japan, in conjunction with its twin, BSAT-4a, also built by Maxar and launched by Arianespace in 2017.
