Monday 4 March 2019 | 09:35 CET | News
Eutelsat announced the successful mating of the platform and payload of the Konnect very high throughput satellite (VHTS), describing the operation as a major step in the build process ahead of its planned launch later this year. Unveiled last year, this all-electric satellite is currently being assembled at Thales Alenia Space's facilities in Cannes. It will be the first to use the Spacebus Neo platform, which has been designed by Thales Alenia Space to offer a number of technical advances and improved operational flexibility.
