The Solaris S-Band payload shares Eutelsat’s W2A satellite. In its current configuration it delivers coverage across much of the EU landmass from two operational beams. Each beam, operating on its own is capable of providing 5MHz of bandwidth capacity, complementing additional bandwidth on the ground and each beam operates in opposite circular polarisation (LHCP & RHCP).

The S-Band payload operates in forward mode (to earth) in the range 2185 – 2200 MHz and in return mode (from earth) in the range 1995 – 2010 MHz. Uplink and downlink to the S-Band payload is in Ku-Band.

The satellite has a lifetime of 15 years and is located at 10°E in geostationary orbit.
