Intelsat plans to add a new satellite to its global fleet. The Intelsat 22 satellite is expected to be launched in Q1 2012 and will serve at the 72 degrees east longitude orbital location over the Indian Ocean region.

The satellite is planned to supply 48 C- and 24 Ku-band 36 MHz equivalent transponders to network services and media customers in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East. The Intelsat 22 satellite will include C-band capacity for Africa and Asia and an ability to cross-connect between the two regions. Its Ku-band payload will provide coverage of the Middle East and East Africa, with connectivity into Europe.

Boeing Space and Intelligence Systems will manufacture the satellite. The launch provider has not yet been announced.
