SXM-8

SXM-8 is a large high power broadcasting satellite for SiriusXM’s digital audio radio service (DARS).

Space Systems/Loral (SS/L) got in July 2016 the contract to build the two satellites based on their SSL-1300 bus – SXM-7 and SXM-8. Both operate in the S-band spectrum. Each satellite will generate more than 20-kW of power and will have a large unfurlable antenna reflector, which enables broadcast to radios without the need for large dish-type antennas on the ground.

SXM-8 is meant to replace the XM-4 satellite.
