Skynet 5 X-Band

Skynet 5 is the world’s most powerful, nuclear-hardened and protected, commercially controlled military X-band and UHF satellite available. Each Skynet 5 has the unique capability to tailor beam-forming networks, including multi-beam switching, to position high power where you need it most and across multiple theaters of operation. As a result, you can deliver highly concentrated links to maximize the data to small terminals and block out sources of interference.
