SES and SpaceX announce contract for three satellite launches - 12-September-2012, 13:40

Today Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX) and SES announced an agreement to launch three additional SES satellites, on SpaceX's Falcon 9 or Falcon Heavy rockets.

This launch agreement - concluded through SES' affiliate company SES-SL - builds on the successful SpaceX-SES partnership that began in March 2011 with the signing of the agreement for SES-8, due for launch in 2013. All four Falcon missions will support the enhancement of SES' global fleet of satellites.

Romain Bausch, President and CEO of SES, stated: "SES was the first leading commercial satellite operator to place a launch contract with SpaceX and we eagerly await the launch of SES-8 in 2013. This new contract is testimony to our belief in SpaceX's product and technical abilities. It also confirms SES' priority for diversification of launch service providers and for securing timely access to space. We look forward to a long-term relationship with SpaceX."

"We're very pleased to add these three additional launches to our agreement with SES," said Gwynne Shotwell, President of SpaceX. "It's a strong endorsement of our launch capabilities and continues an outstanding partnership between our companies." The first SES/SpaceX mission under the contract announced today is scheduled for 2015.
