SES Government Solutions, Inc. Key Developments

SES Government Solutions Wins 14-Year Contract by Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems to Host Payload on Board SES-15

SES Government Solutions announced that it has been awarded a 14-year contract by Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems to host a payload on board SES-15. With the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) as the US Government customer, the Wide Area Augmentation Systems (WAAS) hosted payload will serve as an air navigation aid to augment the Global Positioning Systems (GPS), with the goal of improving its accuracy, integrity and availability. The contract includes construction of the WAAS payload, launch on the SES-15 satellite and 11 years of on-orbit operations with options to extend on an annual basis. The satellite has a life expectancy of 15 years. Launching in 2017, SES-15 will be located at 129 degrees West.

SES Government Solutions Receives Task Order to Provide Satellite Capacity for USCENTCOM

SES Government Solutions (SES GS) announced it has been awarded a 1-year task order with four 1-year option periods to provide 288 MHz of Ku-band satellite capacity to support forces deployed to the U.S. Central Command (USCENTCOM) area of operation. The innovative solution designed by the SES GS team is supported entirely by SES capacity. This agreement allows U.S. troops to send and receive information through satellite services and offers Central Command the flexibility to support forces deployed in the region when and where required.

SES Government Solutions Secures Five-Year Contract by the University of Colorado

SES Government Solutions announced that it has been awarded a five-year contract by the University of Colorado to host a NASA funded payload on board SES-14. The primary purpose of the Global-Scale Observations of the Limb and Disk (GOLD) mission is to revolutionize the understanding of the space environment by filling the critical gap in knowledge of Sun-Earth connections. The hosted payload will transmit data of the Sun’s impact on the Earth’s thermosphere and ionosphere from Geostationary (GEO) orbit. Both of these layers of the Earth’s upper atmosphere are very sensitive to space weather events and space climate, with potential societal impacts. Uncertainties in the thermosphere are a primary source of uncertainty for operating satellites in low Earth orbit. Fluctuations in the ionosphere interfere with signals from communications and global positioning satellites.
