Eutelsat Prepares for Launch of Latin American Satellite

Space Systems Loral (SSL) delivered the EUTELSAT 65 West A satellite to the European Spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana, where it will be launched aboard an Ariane 5 launch vehicle by Arianespace. The advanced high throughput satellite will be used by Eutelsat to provide new broadcast and broadband services in Brazil and across Latin America.


EUTELSAT 65 West A has 10 C-band and 24 Ku-band transponders, for video and data services and 24 Ka-band spot beams for broadband connectivity in key regions. The satellite is designed to provide approximately 16-kW of power at end of life. It is based on the SSL 1300 platform.

"EUTELSAT 65 West A is an exceptional and complex satellite with advanced capabilities that will bring information, entertainment and new opportunities to Latin America and to Brazil in an Olympic year," said John Celli, president of SSL. "It is our pleasure to collaborate closely with the Eutelsat team, which shares our focus on innovation and performance."
