, “Satellite Space Applications Accepted for Filing”
SES Americom requests modification of its authorization for
at 67 degrees west longitude (WL) to extend the 15-year
license term by four years, through December 22, 2018. AMC-4 is currently
authorized to use the 11.45-11.7 GHz and 11.7-12.2 GHz (space-to-Earth) and
13.75-14.0 GHz and 14.0-14,5 GHz (Earth-to-space) conventional and extended
Ku-band frequencies and to provide Fixed Satellite Service (FSS), including
direct-to-home service, from 67 degrees WL. SES Americom also requests
authority to relocate AMC-4 to a disposal orbit with a minimum perigee altitude
of at least 150 km above the geostationary arc at its end of life.
, “Actions Taken”
The FCC International Bureau's Satellite Division granted,
with conditions, authority to Intelsat License LLC to construct, launch and
operate a C- and Ku-band geostationary orbit space station, Intelsat
, at 95.05 degrees WL. FSS is allowed using frequency bands
3400-3700 MHz, 10.95-11.2 GHz, 11.45-11.7 GHz, and 11.7-12.2 GHz
(space-to-Earth) and frequency bands 6425-6675 MHz, 6675-6725 MHz, 13.75-14.0
GHz, and 14.0-14.5 GHz (Earth-to-space). Telemetry, tracking and command
(TT&C) is authorized on specified Ku-band frequencies.
Planet Labs, Inc. received a 30 day extension, until
September 18, 2014, of the deadline to file a $5,000,000 bond in connection
with the Flock 1b
and Flock 1c earth
exploration satellite service constellations.
The Flock 1c satellites were
launched on June 19, 2014 and are operating pursuant to the terms of Planet
Lab's authorization. The Flock 1b satellite were launched to the International
Space Station on July 13, 2014 and will be deployed by September 5, 2014.
