Anik F2 Satellite Returns to Full Service


Anik F2THUNDER BAY – The problems that his the Telesat Anik F2 satellite on Thursday have been corrected. Telesat states that the anomaly that caused the Anik F2 to stop working was caused by a software error.

Services for customers were restored late last evening and over night. Satellite anomalies like the one that affected Telesat’s Anik F2 yesterday are highly unusual. This anomaly happened during a routine maneuver which triggered the satellite to place itself into a safe mode, shutting itself down and pointing itself at the sun to ensure
it remained powered.

The software error that led to the anomaly appears to have been caused by a software update that was recently provided by the satellite manufacturer. That particular software update was not re-loaded onto the satellite.
