Intelsat sees the recent launch of its first High Throughput Satellite (HTS), Intelsat 29e, as the beginning of an interoperable satellite ecosystem between the operator’s own spacecraft and OneWeb’s future Low Earth Orbit (LEO) system. Launched on Jan. 27, Intelsat 29e is the first in the Intelsat EpicNG HTS family. Seven Intelsat EpicNG satellites are currently planned, with the second, Intelsat 33e, scheduled for launch in the second half of this year. Interoperability is a major component of Intelsat EpicNG, both with existing satellites and those of the company’s entrepreneurial partner. Intelsat has made interoperability a priority in order to create a layered, scalable system with different satellites.
