Satellite Operations

We provide cost-effective and reliable operations of satellites and have done so for over 25 years. Our operational standards support  fuel effective operation of geostationary satellites and innovative satellite solutions, including the principle of satellite co-location, and have earned us a high reputation in the satellite industry. Since its incorporation SES has safely operated all its satellites until the end of their life when they are sent into the designated graveyard orbit.

As our satellite fleet includes satellites from major manufacturers, we are able to integrate additional satellites from selected partners at a competitive price into our operations.  For this, we use our facilities in Betzdorf, Luxembourg, as the primary control site, and our facilities in Princeton, USA, as the backup site, or the other way around.

Key benefits:

  • Cost-effective and reliable satellite operations
  • Track record of over 25 years of continuous spacecraft operations without a single satellite loss
  • Experience of controlling busses from major satellite manufacturers (LMCSS, Boeing, SSl/Loral, Orbital Sciences, Airbus and Thales Alenia)
  • Operations reporting with high visibility
