SES's new batch of O3b satellites arrive at Kourou for March launch

Thursday 7 February 2019 | 15:08 CET | News
SES said its four new O3b Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) satellites arrived safely at the Guiana Space Centre in Kourou, French Guiana, in preparation for launch by a Soyuz rocket from Arianespace in late March. The new Ka-band satellites will take the number of SES's existing constellation of MEO satellites to 20. The constellation's expansion will offer enhanced coverage while providing greater service availability and reliability to cater to the increasing demand for bandwidth in the government, telecom, cloud, maritime and energy markets.
