Hosted Payloads

At a time where many government satellite programs have experienced schedule delays, cancellations and budgetary challenges, the use of commercially hosted payloads can help to maintain (or in some cases accelerate) program schedules, fill gaps in operational and proof-of-concept activities and provide a timely and affordable means of accessing space.

SES Government Solutions has hosted the very first Commercially Hosted Infrared Payload (CHIRP) aboard the SES-2 spacecraft since 2011.
