  • GMCstreamTV - USAF ISR XTAR - Commercial X band services

    Re- Published on Jun 1, 2017--XTAR operates at two orbital locations today.  "We are at 29 East where the XTAR EUR satellite operates. It is wholly owned by XTAR today, and it provides fantastic coverage throughout the Atlantic, Europe, Africa, and into Asia to about Singapore. We also operate a satellite at 30 West, and that is our XTAR-LANT (Spainsat) payload that is actually a hosted payload, so we are the hosted payload on what’s referred to as Spainsat, and that gives us reach East/West/through Denver. So there’s an overlap of the two satellites in sort of the Europe and Africa area. But I think more interestingly is as you can see, we were from our start built on the principle of hosted payloads. In fact, we both host and are hosted. LANT is a hosted payload on Spainsat, and the XTAR EUR satellite we host a backup payload for the Spanish MOD (Ministry of Defence)."
