EUTELSAT 10B

Powerful, innovative payloads for inflight and maritime connectivity services

 

LAUNCH: 23/11/2022

Successful launch of EUTELSAT 10B satellite

WATCH THE LAUNCH 

CONSTRUCTOR: Thales Alenia Space

The new EUTELSAT 10B satellite was launched on 23 November 2022. Scheduled to enter service in Q3/2023, the satellite will be located at 10° East, an orbital position that offers a unique visibility spanning from the Americas to Asia.

Built by Thales Alenia Space, EUTELSAT 10B is an all-electric satellite based on the Spacebus NEO platform. The satellite embarks a powerful 5th generation digital transparent processor, offering capacity allocation flexibility and an optimal spectrum use.

Responding to strong growth in demand for mobile connectivity, EUTELSAT 10B will carry two new multi-beam HTS Ku-band payloads:

  • a high-capacity payload, covering the North Atlantic corridor, Europe, the Mediterranean basin and the Middle East, offering significant throughput in the busiest air and sea traffic zones; and
  • a second payload to extend coverage across the Atlantic Ocean, Africa and the Indian Ocean.

The satellite’s HTS payloads will be able to process more than 50 GHz of bandwidth, offering a throughput of approximately 35 Gbps.

EUTELSAT 10B will also carry two widebeam C- and Ku-band payloads to ensure service continuity for existing customers on the EUTELSAT 10A satellite.

KONNECT VHTS

Delivering high-speed broadband across Europe

 

LAUNCH: 07/09/2022

LAUNCH SUCCESS!

ESTIMATED ENTRY INTO SERVICE: H2/2023

CONSTRUCTION: Thales Alenia Space

Eutelsat has ordered a next-generation VHTS (Very High Throughput Satellite) satellite system named KONNECT VHTS, to support the development of our European fixed broadband and in-flight connectivity businesses. The satellite, due to enter into service in 2023, will be built by Thales Alenia Space, who will develop a satellite and ground segment solution that is the most competitive on the market today. With Ka-band capacity of 500 Gbps, KONNECT VHTS will embark the most powerful on-board digital processor ever put in orbit, offering capacity allocation flexibility, optimal spectrum use, and progressive ground network deployment.

The project will be launched with firm multi-year distribution commitments from Orange and Thales, two key European players and leaders in their businesses. A retail partnership was signed with Orange to address the fixed broadband market in European countries where the Group has a retail presence, and a distribution partnership was inked with Thales to serve notably the government connectivity services market.

EUTELSAT 36D

Enhanced service continuity at the key 36° East orbital position

 

LAUNCH: 2024

CONSTRUCTOR: Airbus

Eutelsat has signed a contract with Airbus for the procurement of EUTELSAT 36D, to succeed EUTELSAT 36B at 36° East.

With coverage of Africa, Russia and Europe, 36° East is a key orbital slot. Its two satellites, EUTELSAT 36B and EUTELSAT 36C, together notably support the broadcast businesses of major anchor customers including Multichoice and ZAP in Africa and Tricolor and NTV+ in Russia.

With 70 physical Ku-band transponders, the all-electric EUTELSAT 36D will assure all the main legacy missions of EUTELSAT 36B, with enhancements to coverage areas and performance.

Based on the state-of-the-art Airbus Eurostar Neo platform, the satellite is due for launch in the first half of 2024.
