After another satellite has been discharged in a geological survey this week, at least temporarily, new data now suggests that the spacecraft may not be available.
On Wednesday, satellite operator Intelsat recognized the “service loss” on its Intelsat 29e satellite, which affected marine users, airplanes and operator in Latin America, the Caribbean and the North Atlantic. During the event on Sunday, 7 April, the spacecraft's mounting system was "damaged" by having a flicker moved on board the satellite, "said Intelsat. At that time, Intelsat lost communication with the satellite occasionally, but the company was working with its manufacturer, Boeing, to update their connection.
However, new data from ExoAnalytic Solutions, which has a network of 300 telescopes around the planet, to detect satellite movements in a gem-colored region, shows that the situation has worsened.
Since news was sent to the anomaly Sunday, the company has been keeping an eye on Intelsat 29e with at least two telescopes, and has been told by chief executive Doug Hendrix. Ars. On Thursday, one of these telescopes took the video below which shows that the satellite would continue over four hours. The light ball is at the center of Intelsat 29e, and the stripes are stark stars. First, there is a series of unusual life-saving events from the spaceship, after which a continuation of permanent grass follows. As the halo distributes, there are several pieces of rubbish that are to continue.
Before Thursday's event, the satellite had been about 0.5 degrees, every day, eastwards. Following the series of events, this trend movement has been increased to 1 degree each day, Hendrix said. The main satellite has now fallen below geo-colored, but it is unclear whether some of the debris created still threatens a working satellite in orbit.
At the moment, Hendrix said the company will be working back, reviewing data to try to find out whether it's a kind of out-of-Scotland event, like micro-meteorite or debris. T in a winter geo environment, which caused the problem with satellite, which was just three years old and near the beginning of his or her life. "When an irregularity like this has a young satellite, it makes us understand it outside," he said.
The Intelsat 29e anomaly comes in a series of satellite questions in a geo-geo-gate, where large and satellite communications can look down on the same area of the planet without incurring fuel for the location. T keep up their. During the last two years, satellites such as AMC-9, Telkom-1, AMOS-5, Eutelsat-33B, EchoStar-3, and Galaxy 11 have all all experienced access problems.
“Our team is reviewing this data to identify any movements that may be occurring, common occurrences and common causes,” said Hendrix. "We hope our analysis will provide strong evidence to understand what happened with Intelsat 29e, and perhaps previous orbit riots."
