COM DEV On Board: Echostar XVII and MSG-3 are launched from French Guiana.
COM DEV International Ltd., a manufacturer of space hardware subsystems in Cambridge, Ont, was part of an exciting space launch earlier this summer, when two satellites were lifted into orbit with COM DEV-built equipment on board. The Echostar XVII and MSG-3 satellites were launched from French Guiana on an Ariane 5 rocket, which carried its 9,640 kg payload to geostationary orbit nearly 36,000 km above the Earth in just 34 minutes. Check out this video from the launch.
