AMC-11/SES-1 Avoidance Maneuvers
Satellite fleet operator SES has announced that it will perform an intricate set of orbital
maneuvers to steer its AMC-11 satellite and its cable television customers clear of interference
from the troubled Galaxy 15 spacecraft, called the “Zombie” satellite by some in the media.
The maneuvers will begin taking place on May 25.
AGI has created a notional animation using publically available data. The video is free to
broadcast and online media. To preview the footage, expand the video section below. To learn
more on the planned maneuvers, see the
SES press release.
AGI's STK software can be used to propagate satellites, simulate trajectories, perform
conjunction assessment and analyze and depict radio frequency interference. Discover more
