LKO ComSat III (Archive) 

^^ Craft Information - Orbital Adjustments 9/3/15 ^^

The final satellite in the LKO constellation was launched and placed into orbit with relative ease compared to the first two - although it should be noted this was the second launch attempt. Unfortunately the network was not fully operational at that time as the two previous satellites still required a visit from an astronaut for some repairs/upgrades. The repairs were successful and the LKO ComSat network has since operated flawlessly.

After a 4-month operational gap as the KSA was shutdown due to government audit, drift among the LKO ComSats required ComSat III be re-positioned to bring all back into constant line of sight
