Launch of SES-12 on a Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral AFB, FL launch complex LC-40
Launch scheduled for 4 Jun 18 at 4:29 GMT
Local time 4 Jun 18 at 12:29am Eastern

A Falcon 9 rocket will launch the SES-12 communications satellite into orbit from Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

The Falcon 9 will use a previously flown block 4 first stage booster which will not be recovered and will splash down in the Atlantic ocean.

The SES-12 satellite will expand SESs capabilities to provide direct-to-home (DTH) broadcasting, VSAT, Mobility and High Throughput Satellite (HTS) data connectivity services in the Middle East and the Asia-Pacific region, including rapidly growing markets such as India and Indonesia. The satellite will replace NSS-6 at this location and will be co-located with SES-8. SES-12 is capable of supporting requirements in multiple verticals from Cyprus in the West to Japan in the East, and from Russia in the North to Australia in the South.
