Satellite operator SES has selected Arianespace to launch its new hybrid communications satellite, SES-12, on board an Ariane 5 booster during the fourth quarter of 2017.
The satellite will launch from the European Space Center in Kourou, French Guiana, and will expand SES’s direct-to-home (DTH), VSAT, mobility and high throughput satellite (HTS) data connectivity services in the Asia-Pacific region – including growth markets like India and Indonesia.
SES-12 will be positioned at 95 degrees East, providing incremental and replacement capacity across Asia-Pacific. The satellite will replace SES’s existing NSS-6 satellite and will be co-located with SES-8. SES currently serves close to 20 million DTH households in India and Indochina from this orbital slot.
