By plane, train and rocket: Intelsat 22's journey to space

Ever wonder how satellites get from here (Earth) to there (space)? In the case of Intelsat 22, its journey took it from El Segundo, Calif., where Boeing Space & Intelligence Systems built the satellite, to the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Baikonur, Kazakhstan, where it was successfully launched on March 25. The photo gallery above shows how it got from factory floor to orbit.

Intelsat 22 is Boeing’s first 702 medium power satellite. An evolution of Boeing’s 702 satellite, the 702MP uses proven technology and a modular design approach to enable faster delivery at a lower cost.

“The hosted payload will provide the Australian Defence Force customer with much-needed service at less cost and in a fraction of the time it typically takes to deliver a traditional military satellite.”

The satellite also has an Ultra-High Frequency hosted payload that will be used by the Australian Defence Force “The hosted payload will provide the Australian Defence Force customer with much-needed service at less cost and in a fraction of the time it typically takes to deliver a traditional military satellite,” noted Craig Cooning, vice president and general manager of Boeing Space & Intelligence Systems.
