Posted: Sun, Sep 20, 2020, 10:01 AM ET (1401 GMT)
Intelsat 40e satellite (Maxar) Intelsat ordered an additional C-band communications satellite from Maxar as it finalized plans to deploy a set of replacement satellites. Maxar will build the Intelsat-37 communications satellite, based on its 1300-class platform, in an order announced Thursday. Intelsat-37 is the last of 13 satellites ordered between Intelsat and SES to consolidate North American broadcast customers into a smaller swath of spectrum, freeing up C-band spectrum for terrestrial 5G services. Intelsat also announced contracts with Arianespace and SpaceX to launch the seven C-band satellites it has ordered.
