TerreStat seeks launch date extension

14 Jun 2007

(Report via NewsEdge) TerreStar Networks recently filed a request with the FCC to extend the satellite launch milestone date outlined in its authorization for the launch of its TerreStar-1 satellite.

TerreStar filed the extension to accommodate manufacture and delivery issues experienced by its satellite manufacturer Space Systems/Loral.

TerreStar requested that the launch of its satellite be extended until September 2008 from the current milestone date of November 2007.

The company expects to meet its in-service milestone of November 2008 and bring online North America's first 4G integrated mobile satellite and terrestrial communications network.
