SES-10 is a geostationary communications satellite operated by SES and is designed and manufactured by Airbus Defence and Space on the Eurostar E3000 platform.
It has a pure Ku band payload with 55 transponders to offer Direct-to-home broadcasting and enterprise and broadband connectivity. Its three wide beams will cover Mexico
and the Caribbean, Brazil, and Spanish-speaking South America.
On Mar 30, 2017 SpaceX launched the 5300 kg SES-10 communications satellite into a 246 x 35673 km x 26.2 deg geotransfer orbit. After several orbit raising
burns SES-10 reached a 35775 x 35796 km x 0.1 deg geostationary orbit at 68.5W on Apr 11. The Falcon 9 F9-033 second stage reduced its apogee slightly, ending up
in a 235 x 33407 km orbit. The first stage was Falcon 9 core B1021, which had previously flown on the F9-023/CRS-8 mission in Apr 2016. The reused stage performed
successfully and landed for a second time on the ASDS drone ship 'Of Course I Still Love You' in the Atlantic.
