Intelsat 29E

NSSDCA/COSPAR ID: 2016-004A

Description

Intelsat 29e is the first of the Intelsat EpicNG high throughput satellites.

The spacecraft’s relay platform will have one of the most advanced digital payloads commercially available, delivering enterprise-grade, broadband services to fixed and mobile network operators, aero and maritime mobility service providers, and government customers operating throughout the Americas.

That relay platform is based on the Boeing 702MP spacecraft design, with the satellite boasting a liftoff mass of just over 6,550 kg. It is the 51st Boeing-built satellite to be launched by Arianespace.

It will provide high-throughput Ku-band spot beams over the Americas to meet broadband demand for carrier-grade telecommunications and enterprise connectivity, as well as Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean coverage for highly-used aviation and shipping routes.
