C-Band Replacement Satellites – Innovation in Design?

SES and Intelsat recently ordered C-Band replacement satellites.  These satellite orders are the result of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission taking over 300 megahertz of  spectrum for use in cellular 5G networks. The satellites will be used for mainly television broadcasting.

SES ordered  two satellites from Boeing and two satellites from Northrop Grumman.   Boeing will build the SES-20 and SES-21 satellites in Los Angeles, California, on all-electric 702SP platforms.  Northrop Grumman will build its two satellite orders, SES-18 and SES-19, in Virginia, on its GeoStar-3 platform.

Intelsat ordered six satellites – four from Maxar Technologies to be called Galaxy-31, Galaxy-32, Galaxy-35 and Galaxy-36.  The two satellites from Northrop Grumman are to be called Galaxy-33 and Galaxy-34.   Intelsat is in negotiations with manufacturers for a seventh satellite.
