Boeing completes satellite for Government of Mexico

It’s reported that Boeing has finished the first of two 702HP (high power) geomobile satellites, Centenario, for Mexico’s new Mexsat end-to-end satellite communications system.

Boeing will keep Centenario on behalf of the Mexican Ministry of Communications and Transportation (SCT) until launch. Centenario and the second Boeing satellite called Morelos-3, are planned to launch in 2014 and 2015. Boeing is the integrator for the Mexsat system, which is made up of three satellites, two ground network and satellite control stations in Mexico, associated network operations systems and 67 reference user terminals.

“Boeing, Mexico’s Telecomm technical agency and its consultants have worked closely together throughout the design, build and test of this satellite,” said Craig Cooning, Vice President and General Manager of Boeing Space & Intelligence Systems and CEO of Boeing Satellite Systems International. “Our combined expertise ensures that the Mexsat system will provide reliable telecommunications to the country’s most remote areas.”
