LUXEMBOURG -- November 13, 2012
SES (Paris:SESG) (LuxX:SESG) announced today that it has launched a new iPad
application, showcasing the SES global fleet of 52 satellites and including
over 150 footprints. Now available in the App Store, the app – SES Satellites
- is designed by SES to engage its customers and enable them to easily locate
the satellites covering their markets.
SES Satellites is the first satellite fleet iPad application with a search
tool that displays satellite coverage based on one’s location and has an
augmented reality view which allows customers to easily locate the position of
SES satellites by holding and pointing an iPad toward the sky. Augmented
reality view is a camera view of one's surroundings, enhanced with digital
information. The iPad application also includes facts and figures of the SES
satellites and high quality footprints.
“We are pleased to showcase our fleet and coverage using the capabilities of
the iPad, with 3D earth navigation and an augmented reality view,” said Niclas
Friese Greene, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Corporate
Communications, SES. “This tool illustrates the concept of satellites in space
and coverage over the earth, as well as provides information that will enable
our customers to learn more about our global fleet. With this new application,
we are literally putting our satellite fleet in the hands of our customers.”
