The versatile 1300 series has a total satellite power capability ranging from 5 to 25 kW continuously throughout the life of the spacecraft, and can support from as few as 12 active transponders to as many as 150 transponders.
SSL's 1300 features a lightweight and high-strength structure, fuel-efficient attitude and stationkeeping subsystems, high-efficiency and reliable solar arrays and batteries, and advanced command and control subsystems.
SSL manufactures the 1300 in our state-of-art facility in Palo Alto, California. Integration of components into payload and bus subsystems, as well as satellite system-level testing, are all performed in this location with highly efficient and well-established processes. This centralized production philosophy coupled with colocated subsystem and systems engineering resources enables SSL to deliver reliable satellites on a dependable schedule.
