Building a satellite is no easy feat to accomplish. It can take two to three years to build a satellite like Telstar 19 VANTAGE, which will bring high speed internet to multiple regions and even to people on planes and ships at sea.

The satellites built at SSL contribute to a more connected, informed, and safer world, offering capabilities like cellular backhaul, internet on ships and planes, remote sensing, space exploration, distance learning, emergency communications, and on-orbit servicing and assembly. Have you ever wondered about the process of building a satellite that will provide service from 22,300 miles above Earth? Wendover Productions visited SSL and made this 12 minute video. It gives an inside perspective on what it takes to build satellites that improve life on Earth.
