Default Eutelsat Satellites: Old Names > New Names (& Orbital Positions)

A old article resurrected for reference (as some members continue to use old names, some may simply use the name their receiver displays etc). If you have similar articles from other satellite renaming and the date it was published please add it here

Eutelsat has unified the names of its satellites with the Eutelsat brand. As of March 1st 2012 the Groupís satellites all take the Eutelsat name, with the relevant figure for their orbital position and a letter indicating their order of arrival at that position. This logical pattern enables our user community to immediately identify where a satellite is located and its chronology at the neighbourhood it occupies.

For example, W6 at 21.5į East is now called EUTELSAT 21A, and the future W6A satellite becomes EUTELSAT 21B. To ensure clarity, satellites at Eutelsatís four West positions include West in their name. For example, ATLANTIC BIRDô 2 has become EUTELSAT 8 West A.

Eutelsatís HOT BIRD brand, which over 20 years has acquired an established reputation in the satellite TV industry, is retained and associated with the Eutelsat brand and numbering system.


12.5 degrees West ATLANTIC BIRDô 1 EUTELSAT 12 West A
