Arianespace confirmed today the launch date for the ABS-2 satellite for Asia Broadcast Satellite (ABS), one of the leading satellite operators in the Asia Pacific. ABS-2 will be launched by an Ariane 5 rocket from the Guiana Space Center, Europe’s Spaceport in French Guiana, in 2013.

The ABS-2 satellite, manufactured by Space Systems/Loral using an LS-1300 platform, will weigh more than 6,000 kg at launch. It will be positioned in geostationary orbit at 75 degrees East where ABS-1, ABS-1A and ABS-1B are currently located.
