COMSATBW 2 was manufactured by Thales Alenia Space under the management of EADS Astrium, the program's prime contractor. COMSATB 2 joins a nearly identical satellite launched in October for the German military. The pair of satellites will ensure the German Armed Forces has uninterrupted access to secure telecommunications, including voice and data transmissions, and video and multimedia applications. Germany's new satellite constellation will reach from the Americas to the Far East. COMSATBW 2 will focus its coverage on Europe and Africa. The spacecraft will offer a communications path between the German government, military commanders and troops deployed around the world. Both satellites carry super-high and ultra-high frequency payloads. COMSATBW 2 will be positioned at 13.2 degrees east longitude, where it will conduct its mission for the next 15 years."
