Intelsat 30 (IS-30) Satellite Launch

Built for Intelsat by SSL, Intelsat 30, is a 20-kilowatt class Ku-and C-band satellite. The Ku-band payload, known as DLA-1, is designed to provide distribution services for DirecTV Latin America, with precision antennas that will enable video delivery to hundreds of different local markets in the region. The C-band portion enhances Intelsat’s existing C-band service infrastructure serving Latin America. The satellite will be co-located with Intelsat’s Galaxy 3C satellite at 95°W and is expected to have a service life of more than 15 years.
