Thursday 6 August 2020 | 09:48 CET | News
SES announced that SpaceX will provide launch functionality for up to 3 of its C-band satellites over two launches as part of SES's accelerated C-band clearing plan. SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket will launch two C-band satellites built by Northrop Grumman as well as provide enhanced protection to rapidly launch a contingency satellite from Cape Canaveral, Florida in 2022 allowing SES to meet the Federal Communications Commission's time-critical objective to roll out 5G services across the US.
