The NSS 7 at 20.0°W was designed and manufactured by the company Lockheed Martin. It was designed with the model bus A2100AX. It was designed with a power of 3,900 W. The NSS 7 at 20.0°W is owned by SES S.A.. In all, the NSS 7 at 20.0°W was built with quality in mind, and that is what you can expect from us at Swiss Cast.
The NSS 7 at 20.0°W was launched on April 16th, 2002. It was launched from the Guiana Space Center, located in French Guiana. At launch, the mass of the satellite was 4,692 kg. After the launch, the mass of the satellite was 2,500 kg. NSS 7 at 20.0°W was attached to an Ariane 42L rocket for its launch. In all, the launch was a success which is what you will come to expect with the satellites that are used by Swiss Cast.
The orbit of NSS 7 at 20.0°W is located at 20.0°W. The apogee of the orbit is 35,798 km. The perigee is 35,775km. The eccentricity is 273E-04. The inclination is 0.08 degrees. The call sign is S2463/2854 and the beacons are 11451, and 11454.
Performance That Exceeds Your Expectations
Swiss Cast relies on the satellites that are proven to be winners and that offer amazing service. The NSS 7 at 20.0°W contains 36 C-band and 36 Ku-band transponders. These transponders provide business services and broadcasting all throughout Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and even North and South America. In addition, the NSS 7 at 20.0°W contains over a dozen beams. Some of these beams include the C-band East Hemi Beam, the Ku-band West Africa Beam, and the Ku-West South Africa Beam.
A Proven Track Record
Track record is important when Swiss Cast picks the satellites that it uses. The NSS 7 at 20.0°W comes from a line of satellites with a proven track record that you can trust. The NSS 5 was launched way back in 1997, followed by the NSS 6 in 2002. In addition, other NSS satellites were launched as far back as the 1990’s and multiple satellites have been launched since the launch of NSS 7 at 20.0°W. The satellites we choose have a proven track record.
Swiss Cast knows that the future is just as important as today and we are committed to using quality satellites that are around for many years. When NSS 7 at 20.0°W was launched, it was given an estimated lifetime of 14 years. This would put an estimate of the life of NSS 7 at 20.0°W through 2016. NSS 7 at 20.0°W has been providing quality service for many years and will continue to do so in the coming years.
