Intelsat Regains Control of Americas-7 Satellite

After a week of intensive recovery efforts, Intelsat regained contact and control of its Americas-7 satellite, which experienced a sudden and unusual electrical distribution anomaly on November 28.
Service restoration is underway, with several key customers expected to be operational on 03-Dec-04. The exact cause of the anomaly is still being investigated, in cooperation with Space Systems/Loral, the satellite's manufacturer, and Loral Skynet, each of whom participated in the recovery effort.
