Eutelsat 10B is a planned all-electric communications satellite built by Thales Alenia Space on the Spacebus-Neo-200 platform for Eutelsat Communications to provide inflight and maritime connectivity at 10° East.
Eutelsat 10B will carry two multi-beam HTS Ku-band payloads: a high-capacity payload, covering the North Atlantic corridor, Europe, the Mediterranean basin and the Middle East, offering significant throughput in the busiest air and sea traffic zones, and a second payload to extend coverage across the Atlantic Ocean, Africa and the Indian Ocean. The satellite’s HTS payloads will be able to process more than 50 GHz of bandwidth, offering a throughput of approximately 35 Gbps.The entire satellite payload will be digitally processed, offering capacity allocation flexibility thanks to a digital transparent processor.
Eutelsat 10B satellite will carry two widebeam C- and Ku-band payloads (36 Ku-band transponders, 20 C-band transponders), totalling 32 to ensure continuity of the missions of the Eutelsat 10A satellite, whose operational life is scheduled to end in 2023.
