Superbird-1 and -2 were two Ku/Ka-band fixed-satellite services satellites built for Space Communications (SCC) of Japan. Since the early 1990s, these satellites provided commercial telecommunications services that included satellite news gathering, cable TV, video conferencing, newspaper transmission, business applications, and banking services. Superbird-1 and -2 have both been de-orbited.
