The vital role that SES plays is to provide broadcasters with satellites with the most significant reach.

In other news, SES Government Solutions reported about a milestone that the company had moved forward. It announced that their development team has designed, created, and fielded an O3b MEO (Medium Earth Orbit) loopback capability. In this project, the company has been working with a U.S. government customer. This project’s main role is to provide the U. S’s Defence Department with an upgraded mission-critical communication system. It will solve the communication problems when dealing with remote areas, especially in Southwest Asia.

This awarded task order contradicts the single-award Blanket Purchase Agreement, which is in conjunction with the U.S DoD for Medium Earth Orbit high throughput satellite services. The configuration represents a new and innovative technology in the space world. It leverages an in-theater hub and delivers in-beam connectivity. Like a hub-spoke configuration, the configuration is controlled and under the SES Network Operations Center’s management through a Skala Network Terminal.

The final product uses double MEO beams in the loopback mode via five sites. Each site delivers a capacity that runs up to 450 Mbps. With these functions, it can connect users to the necessary points of presence. Also, SES has managed to form partnerships with other government projects. They include U.S. DoD Maritime O3b deal, US DOD Partners, and German Capacity Deals.
