The mission is called Arabsat 6A, named for the large communications satellite that Falcon Heavy is raising. Built by Lockheed Martin for the Saudi corporation Arabsat, the satellite is described by Lockheed's vice president, Lisa Callahan, as one of "the most advanced commercial communications satellites we have ever built." Arabsat 6A was previously targeting since the third quarter of last year, but it has gone down several months.
