Singapore – SES S.A. announced that the SES-3 satellite is being relocated from its former location over North America to Asia, an area experiencing great demand for the satellite’s capacity. The SES-3 satellite is being relocated to 108.2° East to provide coverage of the Middle East and South Asia regions. The drift began in mid-December 2011 and the satellite is expected to arrive at its new orbital location on February 6, 2012. Once it reaches its destination, the planned coverage is capable of supporting such applications as video, voice, data, and end-to-end communications networks.
