SES-12 eventually will be positioned at 95 degrees east longitude, co-located with the SES-8 relay station - the first SESsatellite launched by SpaceX. The SES, which is a Luxembourg-based telecom company, said that the SES-12 is one among its biggest launches aimed at providing crucial information to the Earth.
"I mean it just fits in the fairing, with not much to spare", he said.
The 5.4-ton (4,900kg/10,800lb) spacecraft, dubbed SES-12, will beam TV, data, and other communications services across the Asia-Pacific region and the Middle East.
The company is expecting both the US and Europe to turn to the Falcon Heavy in the next couple of years for certain satellite launches. The satellite will help communications companies deliver faster, more reliable internet, broadband and cellular services.
"We believe there are one billion people in the Asia-Pacific market who still do not have good connectivity to the devices they hold in their hands", said John-Paul Hemingway, CEO of SES Networks. "And satellite is one of the (ways) - and sometimes the only way - to connect.to those markets". Instead, the satellite will have an electric drive that uses xenon gas pulses to slowly circulate its orbit around the equator for a period of months. After extensive tests and checkout, SES-12 should enter operational service early next year.
It is noted that this is already the 11th successful launch, SpaceX implemented in 2018.
No attempt was made to land the booster after its second flight. The initial Falcon 9 Block 5 was launched in the month of May.
The older Block 4 model has been limited to two flights and is not being recovered to make room for the new rockets.
