Sea/Land Launch schedule
« on: 07/17/2007 02:38 PM »
Launch schedule for Sea Launch and Land Launch.

Note: SL = Sea Launch, LL = Land Launch

Most of this is taken from NASA's Space Calander, so it could be inaccurate.

Date - Satellite(s) - Zenit Type - Organisation - Time
15 October - Thuraya 3 - 3SL - SL
December - DirecTV-11 - 3SL - SL - or April 2008
December? - Echostar 11 - 3SL - SL

2008
Date - Satellite(s) - Zenit Type - Organisation - Time
February - Galaxy 18 - 3SL - SL
March - Galaxy 19 - 3SL - SL
1st Quarter - Amos 3 - 3SLB - LL
May - CMB-Star 1 - 3SL -SL - or Proton
May - Asiasat 5 - 3SLB - LL
July - Measat-1R - 3SLB - LL
July - XM-5 - 3SL - SL


EDITS - per below.

Thanks. Quick response in pinning it as well.

I guess I just like schedules...


I was slightly surprised by the lack of 2SLBs.

Corrected. I checked that thread as well. Must've missed it.

According to SPACEFLIGHT NOW -

DIRECTV-11 Scheduled for Sea Launch in December, no mention of Echostar 11.

Changed - I've moved DirecTV but I have left Echostar for now, as SFN usually misses a few launches out.

EDIT: According to Steven Pietrobon's Space Archive (not really the most accurate website, but it can be useful - http://www.sworld.com.au/steven/space/uscom-man.txt ), Echostar is also scheduled for December. I doubt if SL can complete a 1-month turnaround, but I'll list them both as December for now.

I think you can remove the April listing for DIRECTV-11, and also remove Echostar-11 from 2007.  Found info to support a December target date for DIRECTV-11 at the FAA website.  Link to supporting document is:

http://www.faa.gov/about/office_org/headquarters_offices/ast/media/3Q2007_QLR.pdf

Read last page to confirm this info.

Seems to be quite a quiet time for Sea Launch, in terms of delays, etc, but I guess that this is because they aren't launching anything at the moment.

I've made the changes suggested by ScoBuck.

2007
Date - Satellite(s) - Zenit Type - Organisation - Time
15 October - Thuraya 3 - 3SL - SL
December - DirecTV-11 - 3SL - SL - or April 2008

May - Asiasat 5 - 3SLB - LL
July - Measat-1R - 3SLB - LL

Also to be considered are Zenit-Fregat/SB launches for the Russian government.

Thuraya 3 has been delayed to November.  No public announcement anticipated any time soon.

No, this schedule is only for the launches handled by Sea Launch & Land Launch. These partnerships handle commercial launches. For government launches, see Anik's Russian launch schedule:

With Thuraya's delay to November it is hard to believe they will have two launches this year. Best turnaround for subsequent launches was 51 days in 2001. Best they managed last year was 56 days.

Let's wait and see how fast they can turn it around after Thuraya. A late October launch could result in a two-month turnaround for a DirecTV launch somewhere around Christmas.

2007
Date - Satellite(s) - Zenit Type - Organisation - Time
28 October - Thuraya 3 - 3SL - SL
December? - DirecTV-11 - 3SL - SL - or early 2008

12 March - Amos 3 - 3SLB - LL
March - Galaxy 19 - 3SL - SL

May - Asiasat 5 - 3SLB - LL
July - Measat-1R - 3SLB - LL
July - XM-5 - 3SL - SL
TBD - Echostar 11 - 3SL - SL

I also believe that Thuraya has been delayed, but I'm not sure.
