Space Systems/Loral, LLC Key Developments

SiriusXM Selects Space Systems Loral to Provide Two Powerful Satellites

Space Systems Loral (SSL) reported it has been selected to provide two high power satellites to SiriusXM, the radio company measured by revenue. The next generation satellites, SXM-7 and SXM-8, will replace the XM-3 and XM-4 satellites in 2019 and 2020, respectively, and will help ensure continuous and reliable delivery of SiriusXM's audio entertainment and data services to more than 30.6 million subscribers across North America. Both SXM-7 and SXM-8 will operate in the S-band spectrum. Each satellite will generate more than 20-kW of power and will have a large unfurlable antenna reflector, which enables broadcast to radios without the need for large dish-type antennas on the ground.

Intelsat S.A Selects Space Systems Loral to Provide High Power Communications Satellite

Space Systems Loral announced that it was selected to provide a high power communications satellite for Intelsat S.A. The satellite, Intelsat 39, will provide data networking and video distribution services in Africa, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. It will replace the Intelsat 902 satellite, which was also built by SSL and launched in 2001. Intelsat 39 will have both C-band and Ku-band transponders and will be located at the 62° East longitude position. Intelsat 39 is based on the powerful SSL 1300 platform, which has the flexibility to support a broad range of applications and technology advances, including electric propulsion. The satellite will use both electric and chemical propulsion for orbit rising and will be operated with all-electric propulsion on orbit.
