Launching a New Era of Connectivity: The Journey to JUPITER 3

What does it take to get a commercial communications satellite with the power of JUPITER™ 3 off the ground and into service? Engineering excellence and extraordinary innovation, to start. Over the past months and years, from conception to design to manufacturing and soon to the launch pad and into orbit, hundreds of people have devoted countless hours and ingenuity to bring JUPITER 3 into production.

Join us next as we celebrate the countdown to the launch of JUPITER 3 and the initiation of service on the highly anticipated, next generation Ultra High Density Satellite (UHDS) that will dramatically expand the overall reach and capacity of the Hughes JUPITER fleet across the Americas. With two to three times the Ka-band capacity of JUPITER 2, JUPITER 3 will bring the fleet’s total capacity to more than 1 Tbps― launching a new era of connectivity with services for residential consumers, small businesses, communities, large enterprises, airlines, government offices and more.

When it enters service, JUPITER 3 will rival any communications satellite in space today, elevating––and for many people, initiating––the connected experience in remote and rural areas of North and South America. JUPITER 3 was purpose-built to lay down more capacity density right where customers need it, and brings with it higher speeds and more bandwidth to enable an enhanced satellite internet experience for customers across the JUPITER high throughput satellite footprint.

Getting a state-of-the-art spacecraft as powerful as this one into position 22,300 miles above the Earth’s equator is no small feat. Our Journey to JUPITER 3 will follow the satellite from the factory to its final orbital position in geostationary orbit, including major milestones along the way—manufacturing, testing, transport, fueling and launching phases of its voyage into service.
