September 12, 2019
Boeing unveiled its 702X family of software-defined satellites, highlighting a 1,900kg variant for geosynchronous orbit. The 702X technology enables operators to adapt to changing market conditions by dynamically allocating bandwidth.
Boeing is unveiling its new 702X family of software-defined satellites. All 702X variants, such as the small geosynchronous orbit model shown here, will provide satellite operators the flexibility to reallocate bandwidth through software updates in real time to meet changes in market demand.
702X builds on Boeing’s existing success with the 702 series satellites.
The 702X platform incorporates a mature design, with a medium Earth
orbit version already in production. Advanced manufacturing processes
dramatically reduce cost and schedule risk while allowing the 702X to be
delivered to customers within three years.
