The Military & Aerospace Electronics take:

10 Dec. 2018 -- For the U.S. military and NATO allies this means that they will have immediate access to a high performing, resilient and redundant network for mobility missions at sea, on land and in the air - whenever or wherever they need it.

The sixth and final of the first-generation Intelsat EpicNG satellites, Horizons 3e, brings the most advanced digital payload, C- and Ku- band interconnectivity and optimized power sharing technology to the Asia Pacific and Pacific Ocean regions.

One of the advanced features on Horizons 3e is the multiport amplifier that optimizes power across the satellite. With the multiport amplifier, if one spot beam is idle, its allocated power can be distributed to other beams to meet customer throughput demands.
