Two satellites – Intelsat 37e and BSat-4a – take their spots atop the Ariane 5 VA239 launch vehicle at the Guiana Space Center for a September 2017 liftoff. As the larger of the two, the 7.9-meter tall, 6,481-Kilogram Intelsat 37e is riding in the top payload position while the smaller, 3,520kg BSat-4 takes the lower slot underneath the Sylda adapter.
