    ANOTHER PAWN ON DIRECT-TO-HOME CHESSBOARD – SES-9 SATELLITE LAUNCH SCHEDULED FOR 20TH NOVEMBER 2015

    SpaceX after loss of Falcon 9 with CRS-7 Dragon Spacecraft is going to launch upgraded Falcon 9 1.2V with SES-9 satellite under contract with SES.

    With constellation of 53 satellites SES company is not going to rest on laurels. On 20th November 2015 from launch site SLC-41 on Cape Canaveral ASF is planned launch of next Direct-to-Home satellite made by Boeing. Operating on orbit 108.2° longitude East has potential to confirm SES position in DTH market in Northeast Asia, South Asia and Indonesia. Satellite is equipped with KU band transponders powered by two wings with six panels each constructed with ultra triple-junction gallium arsenide solar cells. Satellite’s propulsion is XIPS – Xenon Ion Propulsion System – electric powered engine which should be ten times more efficient than liquid fueled engines.

    For SpaceX this mission is significant. After loss of Falcon-9 rocket with CRS-7 Dragon company will utilize upgraded Falcon-9 1.2v rocket. Compared to last generation main difference is using fully optimized Merlin-1D engines. SpaceX President Gwynne Shotwell claims:

    Top of the list is Luxembourg-based SES which is likely to see its SES-9 launched on a slow journey to geo-stationary orbit, and using a more powerful Falcon-9 ‘Heavy’ rocket.

    The ‘slow’ journey to orbit is because SES-9 is an all-electric satellite and will thus take 4-6 months to reach its 108.2 deg East spot.

    SpaceX to fly in December |

    They are already wasting the new TP with blank space. Without dealing with channels they added new TP and its sitting idle.
