Boeing

A Satellite Family

Boeing introduced the 702 spacecraft family in 1995, and today more than two dozen are flying, with over a dozen more currently in production. The powerful, scalable 702 HP, MP, and SP product lines have flexible designs and support 3- to 18-kilowatt payloads, meeting the needs of customers seeking satellites in wide power ranges. In 2014, the Boeing 502 satellite joined the family, providing an option to customers who desire a satellite between the large geosynchronous spacecraft and nanosatellites.
