Ariane 5 launch of EchoStar 18 and BRIsat (Arianespace) An Ariane 5 successfully launched two communications satellites June 18 after several delays. The rocket launched from Kourou, French Guiana, at 5:40 pm EDT (2140 GMT), at the end of its launch window because of launch site issues. High winds scrubbed a launch attempt Friday. The Ariane placed into geostationary transfer orbit the EchoStar 18 and BRIsat satellites, both built by Space Systems Loral for EchoStar and BRI Bank of Indonesia, respectively. The combined mass of the payload, 9,503 kilograms, set a new record for the vehicle.
