Our Spacebus family of platforms is expanding with the addition of a new range of geostationary telecom platforms, Spacebus NEO, which will be available in various versions, including one with all-electric propulsion.
A wide variety of configurations
New platforms will be available in a wide variety of versions for all types of geostationary satellites, from small to extra-large. Operators can choose the configuration that best meets their needs, from all-electric, to hybrid, to all-chemical propulsion. Lighter, more robust, modular and powerful, Spacebus NEO platforms perfectly meet operators' expectations for greater competitiveness, flexibility and multi-launcher compatibility. Available starting in 2016, they will be able to handle payloads of up to 2,000 kg, with a record power rating of 20 kW.
The all-electric Spacebus NEO is already being marketed. It is able to handle payloads exceeding 1,400 kg, with over 16 kW of power.
