Alcatel Space, the prime contractor for Flight 137’s Eurasiasat 1 payload, has requested additional verifications on the satellite. These verifications are being performed at the Ariane 4 launch site in Kourou.

As a result, Arianespaceís Flight 137 has been postponed from its scheduled launch window during the night of December 11-12.

A new date for the mission will be determined in coordination with the customer once the results of the satellite verification are known.
