    Boeing built satellite accepted by Mexico

    EL SEGUNDO, Calif., March 5, 2013 -- The MEXSAT Bicentenario satellite, built by Boeing [NYSE: BA] partner Orbital Sciences Corporation [NYSE: ORB], has completed on-orbit testing and has been accepted by the customer, the first step to establishing a space-based communications network that will markedly improve Mexico's satellite communications capabilities.
    The Secretaria de Comunicaciones y Transportes (Secretary of Communications and Transportation) of Mexico, through Telecomunicaciones de Mexico (Telecomm), became responsible for operating the satellite today following a successful launch in December and completion of functionality testing. Bicentanario is the first of three satellites within the MEXSAT system, which will enhance communications for domestic, military, civil and humanitarian needs.
