“The reason why we got the launch order for Inmarsat, I think it’s not of course the price competitiveness of H-2A,” Ko Ogasawara, MHI’s director of space systems business development department “[Our] launch record is very good, 35 record success and high reliability. The other one is on-time launch. We keep our schedule, so I think they put high value on that.
Inmarsat, which did not disclose the value of the launch contract, said it has yet to select a launch provider for its second Inmarsat-6 satellite.
Pearce, however, made clear Inmarsat is paying attention to development of MHI’s next-generation rocket, the H-3.
“With the development of the new H3 launch vehicle, it is clear that MHI is committed to continuing innovation,” Pearce said. “These are attributes that we seek in our partners and we look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with MHI as one of our roster of launch partners.
