Intellian has signed a new contract worth 71.1 billion won (approx. $61 million) with satellite operator SES, to build antennas for the O3b mPOWER medium Earth orbit (MEO) satellite network, to be located 8000 km above the Earth’s equator.
The deal covers antennas for both terrestrial and marine use in various sizes.
SES plans to introduce the O3b mPOWER service in the first half of next year, launching additional satellites to supplement its existing O3b service.
The new satellite network is expected to provide communication services between 50Mbps and 20Gbps using the Ka-band frequency, through a total of 20 medium-orbit communication satellites located 8000km above the Earth’s equator.
