MAJOR SPACE PROJECTS

Today, SES’s O3b MEO system is the only technically-, operationally- and commercially-proven non-geostationary (NGSO) system for delivering low-latency data communications. Positioned at only 8,000 kilometres away from Earth, the system powers low-latency high-throughput solutions that can be seamlessly integrated into terrestrial networks.The current O3b constellation has been operational since 2013 and is delivering fibre-equivalent connectivity services to customers in nearly 50 countries.

Based on the proven concept of the current O3b MEO system, SES’s next-generation satellite communications system O3b mPOWER will bring exponentially more capabilities and opportunities. O3b mPOWER is the world’s only fully-funded NGSO broadband system in development today. The highly flexible O3b mPOWER constellation comprises an initial constellation of seven ultra-high-capacity, low-latency, high-power MEO satellites, each with thousands of fully-shapeable and steerable beams that can be shifted and scaled in real-time to meet customers’ demands. O3b mPOWER will provide multiple terabits of throughput globally to drive digital transformation and cloud adoption virtually anywhere on the planet.

Among other upcoming top of the range space assets, is SES’s high-throughput geostationary satellite SES-17, dedicated to providing services for the aeronautical, maritime, fixed and mobile broadband markets.
