MEV-2 is supplied by Northrop Grumman for the company’s wholly owned subsidiary, SpaceLogistics LLC. Intelsat 10-02 will be the first customer of the MEV-2. Once docked, it will control the orbit of the customer satellite using its own thrusters. After its mission for IS-10-02, MEV-2 will undock and be available for another customer’s vehicle.


Galaxy 30 (G-30) will be the first replacement satellite in Intelsat’s North American Galaxy fleet refresh. It will provide high-performance broadcast distribution capabilities, including Ultra-High Definition (HD) and over-the-top (OTT), while also supporting broadband, mobility and enterprise network solutions.

CSG Kourou feed is already online with view on Ariane and background chat on 7.0°E 11090 H 4936 3/4 8PSK.

Galaxy-30 will be tested at 84.55°E (wonder if that's an error), and final location is 125°W.
Frequency bands 3.7...4.2, 10.7...11.7, 17.8...18.8 and 19.2...20.2 GHz.
TT&C on 4197.5 and 4198.5 MHz.

BSat-4b will probably end up at 110°E, and MEV-2 at 1°W as already known.
