Next generation satellites are significantly expanding potential service applications
LUXEMBOURG, 21 June 2016 -- SES S.A. (Euronext Paris and Luxembourg Stock Exchange: SESG) is pushing satellite innovation further to create new services and applications for customers. The future of satellite service is described in the new White Paper “Satellite Evolution Sparks a Service Revolution”, published at SES Investor Days today. The White Paper focuses on the upcoming customer applications of new satellite technology, including Digital Signal Processing, satellite modularity, and satellite life extension services.
“The next generation of satellites will be flexible and adaptive, providing an improved customer experience,” the White Paper states. “The new satellites will be able to transmit thousands of Gigabits per second, multiplying on-board traffic by one or more orders of magnitude. Even further, the new satellites will operate simultaneously in broadcast and unicast mode, allowing data and video service to converge.”
“The vertical focus and the global size of SES are the key traits that allow it to look at distinct and dynamic markets through the future lens of technical innovation,” the White Paper concludes. “In all areas SES tunes its approach to focus on creating solutions that meet specific needs and have a global scalability. Applied with intelligence and precision, space innovations transcend market boundaries, push product developments, unleash unknown business possibilities, and ferment new markets. This is how SES is able to project products and solutions that have not existed before, and provide services many have not even dared to dream of.”
