Australia's nbn Satellite Readied for Launch

The second high performance satellite designed and built by SSL for Australia's national broadband network (nbn) has arrived at the European Spaceport in Kourou,French Guiana, where it will be launched aboard an Ariane 5 launch vehicle by Arianespace.

The Ka-band satellite, called Sky Muster II, will be used in conjunction with the first Sky Muster satellite, to provide high-speed broadband service to more than 200,000 Australians.

"It has been very gratifying to work together with our colleagues in Australia to help establish a satellite service that brings high speed internet to underserved users anywhere in Australia," said John Celli, president of SSL. "SSL is a leader in building broadband satellites that are used for services that improve people's lives and open new opportunities for education, healthcare and economic development, and we commend the government ofAustralia for assuring that all of its citizens have this type of access."
