White Paper: How Inclined Capacity Reduces Costs For The U.S. Government

Thank you for your interest. Fill out the form below to download SES: saving lives and livelihoods by satellite.

As End-of-Life assets, inclined orbit satellites offer satellite capacity at deeply discounted rates as they support fewer applications.  For the Defense community, inclined satellites are inherently attractive for remotely piloted aircraft (RPA) missions, mobile platforms and Comms-On-The-Move (COTM) applications, as tracking antennas are required due to the moving terminal.  In the proposal below for the AMC-5 commercial satellite, one of 11 inclined satellites flown by global satellite operator SES, cost savings of more than 50% could be achieved over comparable station kept capacity in the same region.
