Telenor Satellite owns and operates THOR 5 and THOR 6, positioned at our prime 1ºWest orbital location. In addition, we own the Spot 1 and Spot 2 payload named THOR 10-02 S1 and S2, located at the same position. Our dedicated space-systems division takes responsibility for our satellites from Telenor Satellite’s main space-control room in Oslo, Norway.
