Launching a rocket is expensive, very expensive and adding weight to the launch makes it even more expensive, removing weight gives you options, either add more, different things, or take the saving.
Our first question was, what weight can we save?
The answer is; guidance of the satellite once it is deployed. A potentially very complex answer to a simple question! To ensure that the satellite maintains its correct orbit it carries a payload of Xenon gas that is used as a common propellant due to several key properties; it is inert and has a high storage density, it is easily ionized and has a high atomic mass.
These 4 points make it a very effective fuel source in spaceflight. Please read the article of NASA to find out more about the use of Xenon in spaceflight.
At the point of launch you need to carry enough gas to make a pre-calculated number of positional adjustments for 20 years. Of course if you miss-calculate the mass of gas needed then the satellite will effectively become redundant when the gas runs out. This is deemed as a critical failure due to the cost/usage ratio and will result in an incomplete payback for the people that own the time the satellite operates for.
Metering flows this low and this repeatedly is a challenge for many industries. You need:
