Satellite Configuration & Technical Information

Intelsat satellites are designed with configurable beacons, beam pointing, transponders connectivity, and transponders gain.

Payload configuration notes (PRM) that provide satellite configuration information for each satellite in service are available on MyIntelsat.

Beacons

The configuration notes provide information about the beacons available on the satellite. They provide details on each beacon which lists the band, frequency, polarization, E.I.R.P. (dBW), use, satellite antenna, and status.

Beacons

Transponder Configuration

The configuration notes list uplink and downlink beam and transponder connectivity and saturation flux density (SFD) for each active transponder.
