Final Arctic Protected Satellite Communications Payload Delivered for Integration on International Host VehicleEL SEGUNDO, Calif. – Space Systems Command’s Military Communication and Positioning, Navigation and Timing Directorate recently delivered the second of two Enhanced Polar System Recapitalization (EPS-R) payloads to begin integration on Space Norway’s Arctic Satellite Broadband Mission host space vehicles.The EPS-R payloads, built by Northrop Grumman at its Space Park campus in Redondo Beach, California, supports a first-of-its-kind program - a U.S. Government payload being hosted on a commercially procured international host satellite.“This delivery marked a major milestone towards the launch of the EPS-R satellite program to provide vital protected satellite communications to the warfighter in the increasingly important arctic region,” said 2nd Lt. Clayton Lieberman, EPS-R Payload Integration & Test lead.Both payloads are undergoing integration onto their respective space vehicles and are scheduled for dual launch in late 2023. Once operational, they will provide 24/7 secure coverage to polar users for both strategic and tactical communications.While the EPS-R satellites and ground system will be operated by the U.S. Space Force, the primary users of this capability are the U.S. Navy’s surface and subsurface fleets, and Coast Guard operating in the North Polar Region. EPS-R will provide users with protected broadband communication into the 2030s. SSC is the USSF field command responsible for rapidly identifying, prototyping and fielding resilient space capabilities for joint warfighters. SSC delivers sustainable joint space warfighting capabilities to defend the nation and its allies while disrupting adversaries in the contested space domain. SSC mission areas include launch acquisition and operations; space domain awareness; positioning, navigation and timing; missile warning; satellite communication; and cross-mission ground, command and control, and data.
WASHINGTON — The U.S. Space Force announced Nov. 28 it delivered the second and final military communications payloads that will launch in 2023 on Space Norway’s Arctic Satellite Broadband Mission known as ASBM.The first Enhanced Polar System Recapitalization (EPS-R) payload was delivered in June. Both payloads are scheduled to launch to highly elliptical orbits on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Vandenberg Space Force Base.

Wrongly put as LZ-2, I corrected that back to LZ-1. None of the F9 boosters is landing on LZ-2.
