JCSat-15 and 16 illustration (SS/L) Space Systems/Loral (SS/L) has won a contract from a Japanese company to build two direct broadcasting satellites, the companies announced Thursday. SS/L will build the JCSat-15 and JCSat-16 satellites for Sky Perfect JSat for launch in 2016. JCSat-15 will replace the existing N-SAT-110 satellite at 110 degrees east in GEO, which provides direct to home television broadcasts to Japan for the Sky PerfectTV! service. JCSat-16 will serve as an on-orbit spare for the company's satellite fleet. Both spacecraft are based on SS/L's 1300-series bus. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.
