Reston, VA and Washington, DC – International Launch Services (ILS) and Intelsat S.A., the world’s leading provider of satellite services, have signed a contract for two firm ILS Proton launch missions.

“Intelsat enjoyed another steady year in 2012, which included five successful satellite launches and the completion of the world’s first global broadband mobility platform, which will enable increased bandwidth to support our customers’ growth plans. We look forward to building on our momentum, as we select ILS for two future satellite launches, enabling us to reach even further into developing regions to meet the growing demand for highly efficient and reliable connectivity,” said Intelsat EVP and Chief Technology Officer Thierry Guillemin.

“ILS is honored to be selected by Intelsat for these future missions.  We are pleased to have Intelsat’s confidence and commitment to support their plans for growth and expansion of their business,” said ILS President Phil Slack.

ILS recently conducted its successful ILS Proton return to flight mission on March 27 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, with the Satmex 8 satellite for Satélites Mexicanos S.A. de C.V. (Satmex) of Mexico City, Mexico.
