All-Electric Eutelsat 115 and ABS 3A Satellites Completed by Boeing


The production of a pair of satellites propelled solely by electricity has been completed by Boeing; West B’s Eutelsat 115 and Asia Broadcast Satellite’s ABS 3A satellite. The smaller platformed 702sp satellites by Boeing give greater flexibility when moving to new positions in orbit, have a lower cost and a significant weight reduction, the satellite manufacturer reports.

Two of the new electric satellites can be launched and stacked together thanks to Boeing’s technology. The launch of the Eutelsat 115 West and ABS 3A on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket is scheduled for February.
