LUXEMBOURG--()--For more than four decades, Intelsat S.A. and Space Systems/Loral (SSL) have worked together to build and operate satellites that provide an essential element in the global communications infrastructure.

From the Intelsat V series of 15 satellites, which began launching in 1980, to Intelsat 20, the most powerful satellite in the Intelsat fleet, SSL and Intelsat have worked together to push the bounds of satellite technology and provide high value and reliability to the many service providers that depend on Intelsat’s communications infrastructure.

Recently, SSL was selected to build Intelsat 34, marking the 50th satellite SSL will provide to the company.
