Business Communication New Satellite ,This C-band multi-mission satellite will be launched on a Proton Breeze M vehicle from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. It will be located on 30.5° East and replace the old ARABSAT 2B satellite. It will have 26 C-band (16 normal + 10 in the so-called Appendix 30B) and 24 (12+12) Ku-band transponders. The satellite will be built and delivered in orbit by a joint team of Astrium and Thales Alenia Space. Astrium, as the leading partner, will supply the platforms and integrate the satellites. Thales Alenia Space will design and build the communications payloads. The team will also upgrade the ground control segment for the extended ARABSAT satellite fleet.ARABSAT5 Aisan Eurostar E3000 model satellite with a launch mass of 4,800 kg and a spacecraft power of 11kW at the end of its 15-year service lifetime. It will be capable of serving the entire Africa and Middle East (MEA) regions, as well as most of Central Asia with a large range of communication services such as television backhauling and broadcasting, telephony, business communications, Internet trunking and the provision of VSAT and other interactive services.
This SES-Americom satellite has been built by Orbital Sciences Corporation on the Star-2.4 Bus platform and will replace AMC-5 at the 281.0° East (79.0° West) orbital position. It has 24 C-band and 24 Ku-band transponders that will serve the Continental United States and portions of the Carribean. Six of the channels in each band can be cross-strapped to the opposite band, allowing signals to be transmitted to the satellite in one frequency and received in the other, giving customers added flexibility while enabling new service developments and enhancements. The bird has a launch mass of 3,152 kg, approximately 5 kW of payload power and a mission life of 15 years.
INTELSAT 16, the new satellite with 24 Ku-band transponders will occupy 302.0° East (58.0° West) orbital position. The satellite employs Orbital Sciences Corporation’s Star-2.4 Bus and will be launched from Baikonur cosmodrome on the Proton Breeze M vehicle. The satellite has a lifetime of 15 years and a mass of 2,5 tons.
Business Communication New Satellite It will provide high power Ku-band capacity for DTH services in Latin America and serve as a complement to the INTELSAT 9.
