Service Restored To PAS-6B Satellite
Pembroke, Bermuda, October 25, 2006
Intelsat announced today that its PAS-6B satellite experienced an anomaly early this morning during a routine, scheduled maneuver. The satellite is used primarily by a Brazilian direct-to-home television service. Services were completely restored this afternoon with all transponders operating normally.
The PAS-6B is a Boeing 601 HP satellite. Final conclusions regarding the cause of the anomaly are pending a formal technical review to be conducted by a group of Intelsat technical employees and representatives of Boeing.
