Airbus signs multi-satellite deal with IntelsatAirbus has signed a contract with Intelsat to build two OneSat satellites operating in multiple frequency bands for Intelsat’s next-generation software-defined network.

The satellites will be based on Airbus’ OneSat product line, the latest generation of fully flexible, Software Defined Satellites (SDS), which can be reconfigured while in orbit.

Airbus will deliver an end-to-end fully integrated solution, including design and manufacture of the satellites. The highly capable ground segment software components, when fully integrated into Intelsat’s next-generation software defined network ecosystem and advanced digital suite will allow dynamic operation of end-to-end satellite resources. The two next generation SD satellites will be delivered in 2023.

Jean-Marc Nasr, Head of Airbus Space Systems said: “This important contract with our long-standing and valued partner Intelsat, has a special significance for Airbus. With six satellites now in production, plus options for three major operators, OneSat has proven that when it comes to fully reconfigurable satellites, Airbus is the winning choice.

“Our new industrial capabilities put in place at our sites across Europe, together with our solid experience in Eurostar geostationary satellites and mega-constellation manufacturing, will enable production of our truly disruptive OneSats at an unrivalled pace.”

SDS will deliver powerful performance and a ground-breaking experience for Intelsat customers across multiple geographic regions. This agreement also marks the beginning of a radical evolution of Intelsat’s network; Intelsat is pursuing an aggressive, multi-year network transformation plan with investments in new assets that are designed for extremely high speeds, enhanced capacity flexibility, redundancy and backwards compatibility.

Intelsat CEO Stephen Spengler said: “Intelsat’s investment in Airbus SDS marks an important first step in evolving the world’s largest, most resilient, integrated space and ground network.

“Our next-generation software-defined network will be the catalyst for our growth, enabling future Gogo Commercial Aviation inflight broadband services, as well as other managed services across Intelsat’s customer segments.”
