SESG System Engineering Sub-Group )(LuxX: SESG), is pleased to announce that the SES satellites AMC-12/ASTRA 4A and AAP-1 have been transferred to SES NEW SKIES which will now be responsible for all customer and capacity management activities associated with these satellites. The spacecraft have subsequently been renamed NSS-10 and NSS-11. The SES NEW SKIES fleet now comprises seven spacecraft optimized for connectivity between the different regions of the world, as well as for the provision of regional interconnection and distribution capacity serving those parts of the world outside of Europe and North America North America, third largest continent (1990 est. pop. 365,000,000), c.9,400,000 sq mi (24,346,000 sq km), the northern of the two continents of the Western Hemisphere. .
The SES NEW SKIES satellites as of today are: NSS-11 (formerly AAP-1) at 108.2x East, NSS-10 (formerly AMC-12/ASTRA 4A) at 322.5x East, NSS-806 at 319.5x East, NSS-7 at 338xEast, NSS-703 at 57x East, NSS-6 at 95x East and NSS-5 at 183x East. In addition, SES NEW SKIES has also assumed commercial responsibility for the West Africa West Africa

Together, the SES NEW SKIES satellites provide global coverage, with the transferred satellites boosting fleet capacity at SES NEW SKIES by 48%, from 215 to 318 transponders. The additional capacity comprises 67 transponders on NSS-10 (reduced from the maximum 72 due to current beam configuration), 28 transponders on NSS-11 and the 8 transponders on the West Africa beam of ASTRA 2B. SES NEW SKIES will further enhance its orbital resources through the addition of NSS-9 in 2009. Positioned at 183x East, it will allow NSS-5 to replace the NSS-703 satellite as it nears the end of its life.
