SES 22 and SES 23 are two C-band only communications satellites owned by SES.
SES has selected two U.S. satellite manufacturers, Northrop Grumman and the Boeing Company, to deliver four new satellites as part of the companyís accelerated C-band clearing plan to meet the Federal Communications Commissionís objectives to roll-out 5G services.
Thales Alenia will deliver two 3500 kg class Spacebus-4000B2 satellites called SES 22 and SES 23, each equipped with a high-quality C-band payload.
The two satellites will help SES meet the Federal Communications Commissionís accelerated C-band clearing deadlines in the United States and will contribute to the effort to clear spectrum necessary to roll out 5G in the United States.
