Satellite Services

EchoStar Satellite Services (ESS) is an industry-leading provider of satellite communications infrastructure and solutions to media and broadcast organizations, pay-TV operators, enterprise customers, and U.S. government and military service providers. In 1995, we took a risk, launching our first satellite, EchoStar I. The success of this first launch laid the foundation for our company’s satellite future.

In 2001, our state-of-the-art Spacecraft Operations Center took control of its first satellite, EchoStar III. Today, EchoStar is one of only a few companies in North America that can perform full satellite management. Our Spacecraft Operations and Engineering team provides world-class services for our fleet of 24 satellites. This fleet will continue to grow as we launch new satellites over the next few years.

Looking toward the future, we continue to explore new opportunities to push the boundaries and grow our satellite-related business.
