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.

What Happens After Viasat 2 Launches: Step 2. In-Orbit Test

After we have designed, built and launched a satellite into space, and it has reached its geostationary orbital slot, we do not immediately call it operational. In fact, we commence the next phase of the process, known as In-Orbit Test (IOT), which evaluates the health of the satellite and characterizes its performance post launch. 

IOT is the last major test on the satellite before it goes into service and is necessary for a number of reasons:
