Airbus Defence and Space announced the successful completion of the 67,000 km move of the Skynet 5A satellite from 6° east to 95° east. Skynet 5A is now optimally located to provide protected and secure military satellite communications (Milsatcom) services to allied governments in the Asia-Pacific region.
The relocation was initiated to extend the Skynet constellation’s coverage and services from 178 west to 163 east, including the Indian Ocean and Western Pacific region. With the move now complete, the Skynet network now offers near-global military X-band and UHF coverage. This expands core service reach for the UK military and augmenting coalition capabilities in the region.
