Boeing Stacks Two Satellites to Launch as a Pair
El Segundo CA (SPX) Nov 19, 2014
Boeing has successfully mated two 702SP (small platform) satellites in a stacked configuration in preparation for the first-ever conjoined satellite launch. The milestone is a significant step towards the early 2015 launch of the satellites ABS-3A and Eutelsat 115 West B, the first-ever all-electric propulsion satellites scheduled to enter service. The 702SP, designed by Boeing Network and Space Systems satellite businesses and Phantom Works, features an all-electric propulsion system and a ... read more
