SES-4 gets new launch date

The launch of SES’s latest satellite SES-4 has been rescheduled for February 15. It had originally been set for a December launch but was delayed due to last-minute technical problems.

Equipped with 52 C-band and 72 Ku-band transponders, SES-4 will launch from Baikonur, Kazakhstan at 01:36 local time. It has C-band beams serving the eastern hemisphere of Europe and Africa, full coverage of the Americas, and a global beam to support mobile and maritime customers. Four high-power, regional Ku-band beams will provide service to Europe, the Middle East, West Africa as well as North and South America with channel switching capability between C- and Ku-band. It will replace the NSS-7 satellite at 338° East.
