Intelsat 30/DLA-1 Ready for Liftoff!

By Todd Schilb, Program Manager, Space Systems Acquisition

Sixth in a series from Intelsat team members overseeing the launch of Intelsat 30, which is hosting the DLA-1 payload for DirecTV Latin America.

This is the final blog installment for the Intelsat 30 launch campaign.  We have completed the final launch readiness review and all systems are ready to go for a launch attempt at the opening of the launch window at 21:00 UTC on 16 October 2014.

Here you can see the launch vehicle mounted on top of the launch table rolling out to the launch pad – this is about 2,500 metric tons of hardware moving down a railroad track.
