SES-12 is a geostationary communications satellite operated by SES S.A.

Satellite description

SES-12 was designed and manufactured by Airbus Defence and Space. It has a mass of 5,384 kg (11,870 lb) and has a design life of at least 15 years.[1]


SES-12 was successfully launched on a SpaceX Block 4 (booster B1040.2) Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral SLC-40 on 4 June 2018 at 04:45:00 UTC, and was successfully released into orbit approximately 33 minutes later.[2]


The SES-12 satellite expands SES's capabilities to provide direct-to-home (DTH) broadcasting, Very-small-aperture terminal (VSAT), mobility, and High-Throughput Satellite (HTS) data connectivity services in the Asia-Pacific region, including rapidly growing markets such as India and Indonesia. The satellite replaces NSS-6 at this location and is co-located with SES-8. SES-12 is capable of supporting requirements in multiple verticals from Cyprus in the West to Japan in the East, and from Russia in the North to Australia in the South.[3]

Together with SES-8, it reaches 18 million homes.[4]
