SES launches on-demand X-band Service Platform

SES Government Solutions, a subsidiary of satellite operator SES, has announced the launch of a new managed service platform in partnership with Network Innovations and GovSat.

tactiXs is a mission-specific managed service that allows customers to buy a volume-based Mbps service, as opposed to MHz bandwidth agreements. It leverages the GovSat-1 satellite operated by GovSat, and delivers secure, non-preemptible X-band capacity to customers on an on-demand basis across Europe, Africa and the Middle East.

President and CEO of SES Government Solutions, Brigadier General Pete Hoene, USAF (retired), said: “Our new service platform is a non-preemptible alternative to WGS that can handle the most tactical-edge customers’ data and mission requirements, and with no lead time required can be set up within hours for the mission at hand. We are proud to partner with both Network Innovations and GovSat as we understand the demand for reliable, uncontended bandwidth and we are excited to bring this innovative and secure solution to the market.”
