further details of the document:
the end of its operational life is not expected before mid-2025.
The EUTELSAT 12 WEST D satellite will operate in a slightly inclined orbit at the 12.5° W.L.orbital location. It will arrive on-station with an inclination of 0.5°, which is expected to increase at a rate of 0.9° per year. Eutelsat anticipates the satellite’s end-of-life to be no earlier than mid-2025, even considering the impact of inclined orbit operations.
