    A Satellite Family

    Boeing introduced the 702 spacecraft family in 1995, and today more than two dozen are flying, with over a dozen more currently in production. The powerful, scalable 702 product line offers flexible designs and can support payload power ranges from 3 kilowatts up to more than 25 kilowatts to meet the needs of customers seeking satellites in wide power ranges. When the space mission calls for smaller satellite solutions, Millennium Space Systems delivers full service, end-to-end solutions to meet demanding national security requirements.
