N-SAT-110, also known as JCSAT-110, Superbird-5 and Superbird-D, is a Japanese geostationary communications satellite which is jointly operated by JSAT Corporation and Space Communications Corporation. It is positioned in geostationary orbit at a longitude of 110° East, from where it is used to provide communications services to Japan.
N-SAT-110 was built by Lockheed Martin, and is based around the A2100AX satellite bus. It is equipped with 24 J band (IEEE Ku band) transponders, and at launch it had a mass of 3,531 kilograms (7,785 lb), with an expected operational lifespan of around 15 years.
The launch of N-SAT-110 was conducted by Arianespace, using an Ariane 44L carrier rocket flying from ELA-2 at the Guiana Space Centre. The launch occurred at 23:00 GMT on 6 October 2000, and successfully deployed N-SAT-110 into a geosynchronous transfer orbit, from which it raised itself to geostationary orbit by means of an onboard LEROS-1C apogee motor. Its insertion into geosynchronous orbit occurred at 03:00 on 14 October 2000.
