SpaceX F9 : Galaxy 13R/37 : 2023

Discussion Thread for launch of Galaxy 13R (aka Galaxy 37)

NSF Threads for Intelsat Galaxy 37 : Discussion

2023 on Falcon 9 to GTO



C-band satellite built by Maxar using the 1300-bus.

Originally contracted to fly on Ariane 6:

Already discussed in the Ariane 6 thread, Galaxy 37 aka Galaxy 13R. SpaceX has the launch order for this satellite.
I don't know when the switch from Ariane 6 to Falcon 9 took place.

What I have read out. Galaxy 37 also has a Ku-band payload.
It should possibly be marketed as Horizons 4. Similar to Horizons 1.
However, I do not know whether Intelsat already agrees with SKY Perfect JSAT on this.
C-band is divided into 2 footprints. The upper 200 Mhz are intended for CONUS.
The lower 300 Mhz e.g. for Alaska and other zones not affected by the C-band clearing.
Launch mass guess, maybe similar to JCSAT-14.

Cross-post; slight firming-up of in service date (Q2 2023 vs Q2/3 2023) > same for launch date?
Q2 status report [June 30]
