Khrunichev Space Center sent a Proton launch vehicle, head fairing, transition system, and Breeze-M booster to the Baikonur Cosmodrome on 22 July to prepare the launch of Eutelsat 5 West B and MEV-1. Northrop Grumman won a contract to build the Eutelsat 5 West B satellite for Eutelsat Communications. Eutelsat 5 West B will be designed, built and tested at Northrop Grumman's manufacturing facility in Dulles, Virginia. The spacecraft will have an operational lifetime of more than 15 years as a broadcast satellite, replacing the existing satellite at Eutelsat's 5° West longitude orbit slot.
