Space X, Falcon 9 rocket was launched successfully yesterday evening.
This event represents a milestone in modern Space technology – being the first reused stage from an earlier flight.
The Satellite manufacturer for SES-10 is Airbus Defense and Space, where Bitvis through other subcontractors have contributed with FPGA development and verification. The designed lifetime for SES-10 is 15 year.
SES-10 will replace AMC-3 and AMC-4 to provide enhanced coverage and significant capacity expansion over Latin America. The satellite will provide coverage over Mexico, serve the Spanish speaking South America in one single beam, and cover Brazil with the ability to support off-shore oil and gas exploration.
