The satellites have steerable spot beams
that cover smaller swaths of about 430 miles wide.
Gogo will also have access to HTS capacity on an additional SES-12 HTS satellite, which is also set to launch in 2017, with high-powered spot beam
and wide beam coverage over Asia, the Middle East, North Africa and Russia.
The 2Ku antenna and its increased spectral efficiency are compatible with today's Ku satellites and future Ku satellites, including future spot beam
EUTELSAT 25B/Es'hail 1 has four steerable spot beam
antennas and four deployable reflectors along with advanced command and telemetry capabilities.
Automatic beam switching (ABS) technology will ensure seamless transitions as the vessels move from one satellite spot beam
to another while providing selective band services within regions.
It will extend ARABSAT's in-orbit capacity at this location for direct-to-home television broadcast and telecommunications services, and will provide broadband services in Ka-band with spot beam
The high-capacity Ka-band spot beam
satellite will provide coverage over North America and Hawaii, enabling new high-speed broadband services for WildBlue in the US, Xplornet in Canada and JetBlue Airways on its domestic US fleet.
