Anik E1


Also called Telesat 11

General


Designation 21726 / 91067A
Launch date 26 Sep 1991
Country of origin Canada
Mission Telecommunications
Geostationary orbit see below
Launch vehicle Ariane V46

On January 20th, 1994 at 12:50 local time, the satellite ran out of control and thus all transmissions were interrupted. Control was regained at 19:00 and at 20:15 all was back into order. Soon after, it was Anik E2's turn! Those technical hitch were caused by magnetic storms.

At 10:47 UT on March 26, 1996 Telesat lost both the C and Ku-bands on the satellite. This was caused by the disconnection of the South solar panel... After this, the satellite is limited to 9 C-band and 10 Ku-band transponders by lack of power.
