Inspired to Connect the World

In 2017, Viasat will launch Viasat-2, a satellite system so unique it would be the catalyst for connecting continents, people and places. It would be the precursor to delivering ultimate internet experiences anywhere on the planet, where continuous, high-speed global connectivity was not a theory but a fact. Viasat-2 would foretell the future of a truly connected world, and would show how Viasat's work was not done ... but just beginning.

Checking-in: Latest ViaSat-2 Satellite Launch Update

ViaSat-2 is making strong progress on its way toward its June 1 launch. The second week of the launch campaign closed by reaching a number of achievements including ViaSat-2 being transferred from the BIL (French acronym for Launcher Integration Building) to the BAF (French acronym for Final Assembly Building).  The BIL is the building where the rocket is initially assembled from the individual components that are shipped over from Europe.  The BAF is the building where the satellites and the payload fairing (nose cone) will be attached to complete the vehicle for flight.
