March 18, 2021 – Amartus is supporting SES with its deep expertise in network automation standards and a proven track record adapting commercial B-OSS software platforms to meet the needs of SES’s next-generation non-geostationary satellite orbit (NGSO) constellation called O3b mPOWER. The official, multi-faceted cooperation between the companies started in October 2020. O3b mPOWER is SES’s next-generation constellation that operates in the medium earth orbit or 8,000km away from the earth’s surface. It comprises an initial constellation of 11 high-throughput and low-latency satellites as well as extensive ground infrastructure. The O3b mPOWER communications system will be operational in 2022 and will deliver connectivity services ranging from 50Mbps to multiple gigabits per second to telecommunications, maritime, aeronautical, and energy industries, as well as governments and institutions across the world. The O3b mPOWER satellites are the first from SES to have Full Digital Beamforming Payload, which enables the highest level of flexibility with large frequency routing capabilities and beams able to point anywhere within the field of view. As a result, O3b mPOWER can connect more users while delivering high-standard services.
