January 8, 2018 - Orbital ATK has been awarded a contract by Intelsat to build the Galaxy 30 communications satellite. The satellite will be based on Orbital ATK’s highly successful GEOStar-2 satellite platform. Galaxy 30 will primarily serve video markets in North America. The satellite is scheduled to launch in early 2020. Galaxy 30 will be the 41st commercial spacecraft built by Orbital ATK for customers around the world. With its flight-proven GEOStar-2 spacecraft platform, Orbital ATK is the world's leading supplier of 1.5 - 5.5 kilowatt commercial geosynchronous (GEO) communications satellites used to provide direct-to-home TV broadcasting, cable program distribution, business data network capacity, regional mobile communications and similar services. The company has also manufactured three spacecraft on its new GEOStar-3 satellite platform which provides up to 8.0 kilowatt of payload power and can accommodate virtually all types of commercial communications payloads.
